After a painful forced break, the cinema comes back to life and the actors too. From the start of the summer, Marion Cotillard will be back in the musical film Annette, directed by Leos Carax, in which she gives the answer to Adam Driver. A long-awaited new feature film which will be presented at the opening of the Cannes film festival, on July 6, the day of its theatrical release. While waiting to be able to walk again on the red carpet of the Croisette, the 45-year-old actress gave a new interview to the magazine Marie Claire for the month of July 2021.
During this interview, the Oscar-winning actress for The kid (in 2008) openly confided in his relationship with Guillaume Canet, his companion for fourteen years now. If in the movie Annette, Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver interpret a competitive couple, it is not in the love life of the actress. “Fortunately, with Guillaume, we talk a lot, we talk about what we experience in our professions. We are very honest with each other, there is no room for resentment or jealousy, the mother of Marcel and Louise (10 and 4 years old) she confided. But neither were we confronted with periods when one would have lacked some form of recognition..”
However, Marion Cotillard has indeed been confronted with jealousy during previous romantic relationships … “It happened to me in the past to be in a relationship with men who worked less than me, even though we were doing the same job, and I didn’t really realize how it could be painful to be considered as the person ‘who accompanies’ the one who is in the light. I figured it out later.“As a reminder, before meeting Guillaume Canet, the muse Chanel dated the late actor Julien Rassam (Claude Berri’s son), then actor Stéphan Guérin-Tillié and singer Sinclair.
I deeply admire the director he is
Intimate accomplices, Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet are also in the cinema. The two actors who have already given the cue in Child games (2002), The Last Flight (2009), The Little Handkerchiefs (2010), Blood Ties (2013), Rock’n Roll (2017) and We will end up together (2019) shared a major new project together: the pharaonic filming ofAsterix and Obelix The Middle Kingdom, for which Guillaume Canet has accumulated the caps of director, co-writer and actor, by donning the Asterix costume. For her part, Marion Cotillard slipped into the skin of Cleopatra. “I deeply admire the director he is, beyond the fact that he’s the man I love. I am impressed with the way he tells stories“, shares the actress.
The public could well have a surprise when they discover the film on the big screen, since their son Marcel could make an appearance … See you in 2022!
