Meanwhile, a few of the highlights from Miss Cotillard's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to W!
On being snubbed at Cannes:
"I think I may have been on too many magazine covers. In France, they like the underdog. In America, they appreciate success."
On the first movie she ever saw:
"'Fantasia.' The dancing hippopotamus made an impression on me. And, of course, 'E.T.' I went totally mad in the theater. I was almost pulling my hair out when they took E.T. away. That’s a deep memory of anger, despair, and pain. They had to get me out of the theater. I was screaming."
On whether it's more difficult to do a death scene or sex scene:
"Definitely a sex scene. I hate sex scenes. The body is so important in this movie, but I hate being naked onscreen. It’s very weird to imagine how a person would have sex. It cannot be your way. Otherwise, it would be super uncomfortable and overly intimate. Everyone has a way to have sex, so a character does too. I mean, kissing is very powerful. You feel something, you know? It’s really intense to kiss as another person."
