Early life

Cotillard was born in Paris, and grew up around Orléans,[1] in an artistically inclined, "bustling, creative household". Her father, Jean-Claude Cotillard, is an actor, teacher, former mime, and 2006 Molière Award-winning director. He is of Breton descent.[4] Cotillard's mother, Niseema Theillaud, is also an actress and drama teacher.[5] Her two younger brothers are twins: Quentin and Guillaume. Guillaume is a screenwriter and director. Cotillard began acting during her childhood, appearing on stage in one of her father's plays.[6]


Early work in French cinema (1993–2002)

Cotillard photographed by Studio Harcourt, Paris in 1999.

After small appearances and performances in theater, Cotillard had occasional, minor roles in television series such as Highlander - where she had her first English-speaking role at age 17, appearing as Lori Bellian in the episode "Nowhere to Run",[7] she also had an uncredited role in the episode "Saving Grace", in which she appeared giving birth in one scene.[8] But her career as a film actress began in the mid-1990s with small but noticeable roles in films like L' Histoire du garçon qui voulait qu'on l'embrasse, Arnaud Desplechin's My Sex Life... or How I Got Into an Argument and the comedy La Belle Verte directed by Coline Serreau.

In 1996, Cotillard had her first leading role in the TV film Chloé, playing the title role, a teenage runaway who is forced into prostitution, co-starring Anna Karina.[9] In 1998, she appeared in Gérard Pirès' action comedy Taxi, playing Lili Bertineau, girlfriend of delivery boy Daniel. The film was a hit in France and she was nominated for a César Award for Most Promising Actress.[10] Cotillard reprised the role in two sequels: Taxi 2 and Taxi 3.[1] She then ventured into science fiction with Alexandre Aja's post-apocalyptic romantic drama, Furia in 1999.[1] That year Cotillard starred in the Swiss war drama War in the Highlands (La Guerre dans le Haut Pays), for which she won the Best Actress Award at Autrans Film Festival in 1999.[1]

In 2001, she appeared in Pierre Grimblat's film Lisa, playing the title role and younger version of Jeanne Moreau's character, co-starring with Benoît Magimel and Sagamore Stévenin.[11] In the same year, she starred in Gilles Paquet-Brenner's film Pretty Things (Les Jolies Choses), adapted from the work of feminist writer Virginie Despentes. In the drama, Cotillard portrayed twins of completely opposite characters, Lucie and Marie, and she was nominated for a César Award for Most Promising Actress for her performance.[12]

In 2002, she appeared in Guillaume Nicloux's thriller A Private Affair (Une Affaire Privée), where she portrayed the mysterious Clarisse.[1]

The film was directed by Yann Samuel and was a box office hit in France.

In 2004, she won the Chopard Trophy of Female Revelation at the Cannes Film Festival.[13] She also appeared in two critically acclaimed films: Jean-Pierre Jeunet's A Very Long Engagement (Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles) as the vengeful Tina Lombardi, for which she won a César Award for Best Supporting Actress,[14] and the mystery thriller Innocence as Mademoiselle Éva.[1]

La Vie en Rose and breakthrough (2007–2008)

Cotillard at a press conference for La vie en Rose in February 2007

Cotillard was chosen by director Olivier Dahan to portray the French singer Édith Piaf in the biopic La Vie en Rose before he had even met her, saying that he noticed a similarity between Piaf's and Cotillard's eyes.[16] Producer Alain Goldman accepted and defended the choice even though distributors TFM reduced the money they gave to finance the film thinking Cotillard wasn't "bankable" enough an actress.[17] Her portrayal was widely praised, including by the eminent theatre director Sir Trevor Nunn, who described it as "one of the greatest performances on film ever."[18] At the Berlin International Film Festival, where the film premiered, Cotillard was given a 15-minute standing ovation. It was dubbed "the most awaited film of 2007" in France, where some critics said that she had reincarnated Édith Piaf to sing one last time on stage.[19]

She is the first actress to win a Golden Globe for a foreign language performance since 1972, when Liv Ullmann won for The Emigrants. She is also the first person to win a (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe for a foreign language performance.[20] On 10 February 2008, Cotillard became the first French actress to be awarded the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role since Stéphane Audran in 1973.[21]

On 22 February 2008, she was awarded the César Award for Best Actress for her performance in La Vie en Rose. Alain Delon presented the award and announced the winner as "La Môme Marion" (The Kid Marion), also praising her on stage saying: "Marion, I give you this César. I think this César is for a great great actress, and I know what I'm talking about".[22] Two days later, on 24 February 2008 at the Academy Awards, she won Best Actress, becoming the first woman and second person (after Adrien Brody, The Pianist) to win both a César and an Oscar for the same performance.[23] Cotillard is the second French cinema actress to win this award[24] and the third overall to receive an Academy Award after Simone Signoret in 1960 and Juliette Binoche in 1997.[25] She is the first Best Actress winner in a non-English language performance since Sophia Loren's win in 1961.[26] She is also the first and (as of 2015) only winner of an Academy Award for a performance in the French language.[27] In her Oscar acceptance speech, Cotillard proclaimed "thank you life, thank you love" and, speaking of Los Angeles, said "it is true, there is some angels (sic) in this city!"[28] The day following the ceremony, Cotillard was congratulated and praised by the President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, in a statement saying,

I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Marion Cotillard, who has just received the Oscar for Best Actress for her masterful interpretation of Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, directed by Olivier Dahan. Half a century after Simone Signoret, a French artist has received the Best Actress award at the Oscars. It was a good omen that Catherine Allegret, Simone Signoret's daughter, herself had a role in La Vie en Rose. Marion Cotillard embodies an Édith Piaf who is unsettling in her realism, emotion and passion. Her interpretation brings to life the story of a woman who gave French chanson its acclaim and authenticity; a singer, too, who closely united France and America.[29]

La Vie En Rose was partly a Czech production, as Cotillard mentioned in her César acceptance speech.[30] On 1 March 2008, Cotillard won a Czech Lion Award for Best Actress.[31] She could not attend the ceremony in Prague due to the filming of Public Enemies. Her friend Pavlína Němcová – who played the journalist in La vie en Rose – was there to accept the award on her behalf.[32]

On 24 June 2008, Cotillard was one of 105 individuals invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.[33]

On 15 December 2009, Cotillard was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for her performance in the film.[35] Cotillard appeared on the cover of the November 2009 issue of Vogue with her Nine co-stars, and on the July 2010 cover by herself.[36][37]

For her role as Luisa Contini in Nine, Time magazine ranked her as the fifth best performance by a female in 2009, behind Mo'Nique, Carey Mulligan, Saoirse Ronan and Meryl Streep.[38] Cotillard was awarded the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award at the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival for her performance - her second prize from the festival.[39]

Her performance is as unexpected and as unsentimental and raw as the film itself".[50] She also received several honors and career tributes at Telluride Film Festival,[51] Hollywood Film Festival,[52] AFI Fest,[53] Gotham Awards[54] and Harper's Bazaar Awards.[55]
