This is Marion Cotillard leaving Cipriani in London last night where she’s been working on Nine alongside Kate Hudson, Pene Cruz, Fergie, and of course, Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman, among others.

Word is this may not be Marion’s only project with the Gran. The two could potentially work together again on a Steven Spielberg production called The Rivals about actresses Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. One was younger than the other, they battled over parts and over boys, as the younger Duse (Marion’s role) threatened old Sandra’s (Nicole, obviously) reign.

Amazing, non?

Two Oscar winners going head to head and art imitating life… am actually surprised that Gran would agree to this. Knowing her, she’ll probably lobby for the Marion part, claiming she’s more youthful.

Thanks Jake B for the tip!
