Marion Cotillard in W: I Was a Dramatic Child
Looking gorgeous in Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin and Chanel, Marion Cotillard makes almost as much of a splash on W's December cover as she's likely to with her turn in the upcoming film, "Rust and Bone," which set off some major Oscar buzz when it premiered at Cannes. Inside, she opens up about her passion for tragedy and drama, recalling that even as a little girl, she was drawn to the theater. "I always wanted to express myself by being someone other than myself," she says. "I needed to experience the human soul — something more than just my soul. I wasn't enough!" Cotillard, 37, had an equally visceral response to the first movies she saw: "'Fantasia.' The dancing hippopotamus made an impression on me," she says. But it was "E.T." that really got her. "I was almost pulling my hair out when they took E.T. away. That's a deep memory of anger, despair and pain." Though it includes no scenes of extra-terrestrial anguish, "Rust and Bone" hits theaters Nov. 23. (W)
