Fashion icon...Marion Cotillard

In this month we will talk about French actresses, like Marion Cotillard, Audrey Tautu, Laetitia Casta and Eva Green. Let's start with an amazing actress and model, Marion Cotillard.

Actress and singer Marion Cotillard was born on September 30, 1975 in Paris, France. Raised in a household of actors, teachers, artists and entertainers, Cotillard decided to become an actress at an early age. At 16, she moved to Paris to pursue her dream, and by 2001, she had won France's prestigious Cesar Award for her performance as twins Lucie and Marie in Les Jolie Choses.

" I don't think you learn how to act. You learn how to use your emotions and feelings, and my first teacher was my mother and then I worked with my father, who helped me to find in myself all those emotions and how to play with the emotions. "

Cotillard made her Hollywood debut in Tim Burton's 2003 fantasy Big Fish. She then captured her second Cesar Award for her turn in 2004's A Very Long Engagement with Audrey Tautou. Her second American film, A Good Year opposite Russell Crowe, also received strong reviews. But it was Cotillard's starring performance as fallen French singer Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose that made international audiences take notice. Her uncanny transformation into Piaf earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination for best actress.
