Zitat des Tages von Marion Cotillard:
When you start a scene, and you don't really know where you're going to go, that's a roller-coaster.
It's pretty refreshing to be in a situation where the spotlight is on someone else.
I don't stick to special techniques, conscious techniques.
The first thing I have to do to erase my French accent is think that it is actually possible, whereas for the moment, I think it's not. I have a lot of work.
As a teenager, I didn't want to be me; I wanted to be many different people. Maybe I realized that they all lived inside me and that if I managed to connect with them, they would become aspects of me.
I need to be on the same page as the director.
What I like in this job is you can travel to many places, many imaginations.
I am not very good at expressing myself in a simple way so it can create mis-understandings and I hate that.
I think that emotion and good stories can cross the times.
I'm affected by the characters I play, and sometimes they're hard to live with.
When you see yourself on video, you and your friends spending time on vacation, and they take a video, and then you see it, it's really disturbing.
There is something strange about me. I don't ever feel at ease in a group of people. I have to fight hard to overcome my fears.
When someone would come up to me in the street, I would either run away or burst into tears. I didn't know what to do. I don't think you're ever prepared for this.
I'm not a liar.
I always thought that I was a terrible writer. And I started to write songs. And I started to like what I was writing. I think it's a new way for me to express things that are closer to myself than when I play a role because, of course, it's really not me.
I don't live with my role, I'm a really normal person.
Did a man really walk on the moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered.
I have a tendency to often share the point of view of the conspiracy theory.
I don't think you learn how to act. You learn how to use your emotions and feelings.
My parents always told me that if you want something, you can do whatever you have to do to get it. As long as it's not against someone else.
It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical... I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.
I don't want to change the world; I want to evolve myself.
Filmmaking is not about gender. You cannot ask a president in a festival like Cannes to have, like, five movies directed by women and five by men.
If I wake up during a dream I can usually go back to sleep and finish the story.
In a way, I don't create anything; I just open myself to the character, and the character takes over. Of course, I'm aware of it, and I'm driving it, but I don't try to control it. If I try to control it, it goes wrong.
I never thought I'd have the opportunity to visit another culture.
When you don't have time, especially for a director, you cannot do exactly what you want to do. You have to cut your dream to fit in the movie you're doing.
Every story is different, every movie is different, every director is different.
I cry watching 'Camille' with Greta Garbo. I have to say that - while it might sound weird - it will be weird, but there is one movie I always laugh in, and at the end of the movie, I always cry, and I saw it, like, 10 times. It's 'Step Brothers.'
I never analyzed whether I had a style or whether I didn't. I wouldn't be able to describe my style or even tell if I have one or not.
I don't really pay attention to which accent I have. I'm in a singular box as an actress.
I think we're lied to about a number of things.
It was right after I did Piaf, 'La Vie en Rose'. I started to take singing lessons and finding where I could go.
I don't have a goal.
I think the Earth and everything around it is connected - the sky and the planets and the stars and everything else we see as a mystery.
There are so many actresses that I love. I think Jennifer Lawrence is a prodigy. I think Elle Fanning is absolutely amazing.
