Biography

Marion Cotillard (born 30 September 1975) is a French actress, perhaps best known for portraying Édith Piaf in 2007's La Môme (also known as La Vie En Rose).

Although more widely known in France, Cotillard is building an international presence. In 2003, her reputation was considerably enhanced by her role as the impetuous Sophie Kowalski in Yann Samuell's Jeux d'enfants (Love Me If You Dare), which proved her ability to play a complex yet appealing modern romantic lead. She was also buoyed by her role in Tim Burton's film Big Fish, opposite Billy Crudup and Albert Finney, which introduced her to English-speaking audiences. Cotillard further demonstrated the range of her abilities by playing the murderous Tina Lombardi in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Un long dimanche de fiançailles (A Very Long Engagement) (2004), and more recently in Ridley Scott's A Good Year. She was chosen among hundreds of candidates to portray the iconic French chanteuse Édith Piaf in Olivier Dahan's biopic La Môme (English title: La Vie En Rose), dubbed "the most awaited film of 2007" in France.

Cotillard was born in Paris and grew up around Orléans, Loiret in an artistically inclined, "bustling, creative household". Her father, Jean-Claude Cotillard, is an actor, teacher, director, and former mime, and her mother, Niseema Theillaud is also an actress. She has two younger twin brothers named Quentin and Guillaume, the first being a sculptor/painter (he lives in the US) and the second one a writer. Cotillard is known to be ecologically minded, and has served as a spokesperson for Greenpeace letting the organisation use her apartment for testing products.
