Marion Cotillard recently premiered her new film 'Rust and Bone' at the Toronto International Film Festival. To promote the film, Cotillard has been speaking to press and did a Q&A with the Toronto Star. One of the things she spoke about was having no make-up in the movie, to which she says "Yeah, but I am not looking for glamour when I fell in love with the character and the story. I’m totally in love with the fact that I would only spend two minutes in hair and makeup in the morning. It’s — I like different things. I like when things are different, so going from a very glamorous character to no glamour at all, but something else, something very strong, because she has her own way to be sexy. When she surrenders to the love story, to the life again, there’s something very sexy about it."
She also talks about meeting her co-star Matthias Schoenarts for the first time, saying No, it was the first time. I hadn’t seen his work before we worked together. I didn’t have time to watch Bullhead before we started the movie, so I watched it after. But there was no need to see his work to see how good he was, because when I first met him it was at Jacques’ house to do a reading and I saw this charismatic tall, beautiful guy. I was surprised by how tall he was.
Both actors are getting strong notices for their performances, with Cotillard getting Oscar buzz for her role. Sony Pictures Classics will be releasing the movie in the US, and they have spoken out in support of the movie, saying it may be easier to sell to American audiences than other French films.
