Actress poses alongside a model dressed as a tin soldier sporting an outlandish Iris Van Herpen plastic dress, latex gloves, leotards and stockings mixed with haute couture designs. Cotillard told magazine about her career start and experience with the American cinema industry.
Both my parents were actors, and their favorite was Charlie Chaplin. My mother’s favorite actress was Greta Garbo.
On about dramatic from childhood: “I always wanted to express myself by being someone other than myself. I needed to experience the human soul—something more than just my soul. I wasn’t enough! When I was 10 or 11, I played an angry housekeeper in a play at camp. I was yelling at everyone. I remember the feeling I had when it was over. I really loved it.”
On starring in Big Fish: “I was a big fan of Beetlejuice, and I really wanted to work with Tim Burton. I remember I kept the pages of the scenes under my pillow for a month. I don’t know if that’s why I got the part, but I know I wished for it every night.”
On her Oscar night: “It was amazing. In France, we have a lot of actors, but you never get a chance to share your experiences. In America, you show the movie, and you talk about it with actors who know what it’s like to open your heart, soul, and mind to another person and let them in. I especially feel very close to other actresses…I love actresses.”
