Thanks to kvc, fan extraordinaire, for sending in this article. One of the things we discovered while reading it was that, as suspected, Marion is a bit sick (all this globe-trotting cannot be too healthy). Let's hope she gets better soon.
Marion Cotillard has had better days. Looking a bit pale, bundled up in a black cowl-neck sweater and slouching deeply into a sofa, she occasionally reaches for a cup of tea. With any luck, the drink will help fight off a cold that's left her with a rib-rattling cough.
Behind her, outside the 12th-floor window of a downtown San Francisco hotel, the sky and surroundings are dull gray, streaked with heavy rainfall; it's not unlike a typical winter day in Paris, which may make the 32-year-old Parisian actress even more homesick. She's been away from her terre natale for a year and a half, doing publicity for the biopic "La Vie en Rose," in which she plays Edith Piaf, and she says she longs to be back with her family and friends.
Not that she's complaining.
"I can't say, 'Oh, yeah, I'm fed up, baba baba baba," she says in charmingly accented English, employing her equivalent of yada yada. "If I would say this, I wish someone would say, 'Eh, hello! Do you know what's happening to you? Do you know that people would love to be where you are right now?'"
As you probably know, Marion is now back in France!
