Marion Cotillard Topics
I think the Earth and everything around it is connected, the sky and the planets and the stars and everything else we see as a mystery. I think we connect when we accept that the mystery is also taking place here on the ground. We live on Earth and have jobs and interact in society, but we still exist because there is a moon rotating around us, and a sun we rotate around.
I love being one of the musicians in the back. The light is on the singer and Im in the band. I love that.
Im very happy with whats happening now and how the awareness is spreading. Because 10 years ago my mind-set wasnt really normal for most people. I sounded like a crazy person talking about the environment. People saw me as a hippie who wanted to make my own cheese and live with animals in a house without electricity.
I believe in human beings absolutely. Sometimes Im just a little disturbed by how we rule the world. When I was a teenager I was so angry. I was asking questions like, Why am I here? Why are we alive? What am I doing? Now Ive stopped searching for those answers, which I might never get. I think its more important to feel connected. When I was in the Congo I couldn't speak the language. But I could understand what was happening by looking in someone elses eyes.
I took piano lessons when I was like 5 or 6 but that was a long time ago. I stopped when I was 13.
Its a paradox to be an actress, living in the city, taking planes all the time, trying to find the right balance in this life, which is not so eco-friendly, and still try to respect the environment.
Im so happy about because last year I was away from home all the time. I loved being on the road and having the opportunity to travel all over. But Im happy to be able to be home and asleep in my bed after a day of work. Usually when you work, you make homes everywhere. Ive made homes in Chicago, London, Africa...When I was in Los Angeles shooting Inception, I rented a beautiful house. It was home for a while, but I was aware it wasn't mine. It might actually be a challenge to get into a character while being in my own place.
I remember when I was a little girl at her house in Brittany. When she cooked, she wouldnt waste anything. And my parents always raised me to believe that the most important thing was respect. Respect the place you live, be aware of the impact that you have on things. I was lucky to have this education growing up. I was born in Paris and raised in the suburbs and then lived in the countryside. We had a beautiful house with a huge garden. When I moved to the country, I was really connected to nature and the seasons. So when I finally went back to Paris, I had a very hard time connecting with the city again and the way we waste so much. I started to read and teach myself about the environment and why it was not organic and natural to be living in the city.
You know what? I would love to go into an animals dream, like a lions or a cats. Im sure thats pretty awesome.
I think searching is a beautiful thing. There is this thought that goes, If you search and search and stop searching, then ultimately youll find what you need. But I think maybe if you dont search you wouldnt have the experience of searching and then wont find it at all. You have to search first, if you know what I mean. Its the experience of living. We can have one experience that can change our whole lives. I saw a documentary recently about a guy who was attacked by a shark. He was very injured and almost died. After this, he went all over the world killing sharks. Then an even bigger fear entered his mind: I have killed so many of them. If I go on killing sharks, maybe one day they will all disappear. The fear of his being responsible for the extinction of sharks made him change, and he then became a defender of sharks.
My apartment in Switzerland was too big for me. I needed far less living space than I had. I was constantly preoccupied with the idea to get away from this place, it just bothered me that much. The only thing I liked were those moments that helped me escape the dismal mood, which hung over me more often. Like a child I would sit on a chair in the middle of the room, observing the bright celestial body, which was clearly seen from the large windows on both sides of the living room. Early hours were particularly good for this. The city was just slowly waking up when I already saw the sunrise. Gentle rays of the spring sun flooded my face, bringing back memories of the mountains, and the paths. I vividly remembered jogs in the undisturbed snow. The sun reflected off the pristine snow, blinding my eyes and making it unable to put on pace. Those times seemed so distant and unattainable now.
I'll never approach a part in the same way again. Piaf taught me so much. In terms of my work, I think I'll enjoy it even more than before, because now I know that characters truly exist in their own right. I'll have a way to bring them even more intensely to life.
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.
Going to a museum. I love it. I think the last exhibit I saw was two years ago, here, in Santa Monica. So yeah, it has been quite a long time. I don't remember when I was home and had fun. I'm never in Paris. I haven't been in Paris in so long.
The first thing I have to do to erase my French accent is think that it is actually possible, whereas for the moment, I think it's not. I have a lot of work.
My parents always told me that if you want something, you can do whatever you have to do to get it. As long as it's not against someone else.
It's pretty refreshing to be in a situation where the spotlight is on someone else.
It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical... I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.
I have a tendency to often share the point of view of the conspiracy theory.
I don't think you learn how to act. You learn how to use your emotions and feelings.
