Marion Cotillard Closes Out the Marrakech Film Festival
Capping off over a week of events, Marion Cotillard attended the Marrakech Film Festival closing and awards ceremony in Paris, France on Saturday (December 7).
The "Dark Knight Rises" star and member of the jury donned a draped black dress with matching heels as she posed for pics on the red carpet and joined jury leader Martin Scorsese on stage.
In an interview with Variety during the 13th annual fest, the 38-year-old actress talked about her experience with the famed director.
Not anticipating that their collaboration would result in a role, she explains, "Of course I’d love to make a movie with him one day, but today, the relationship we have all together, with the jury, is just about talking about cinema. I’ll do a parallel with James Gray. I met him with my boyfriend (Guillaume Canet) and we became friends. I’m a huge admirer of his work but when I met him, I didn’t even dare to tell him. Never in my mind was I thinking, 'I’m going to do everything to work for him' because I was never able to be in that kind of seduction from the beginning of my career. When I had to meet a director, I preferred to have a screen test and show what I could do instead of sell myself in a discussion, because I was bad at it. When I met James, we became friends and I never thought I could work with him because he was my friend. The relationship I have with Martin (Scorsese) is two people who talk about cinema, and that’s it."
