At first I thought this was a weave. And I was sad that my Marion would get extensions put in. Then I searched more recent photos and realised her hair has been styled curly for the better part of 3 months. So when straightened, of course it would be longer. Relief. Marion Cotillard is still real. And so f-cking gorgeous.

She was at a Cesar Awards luncheon the other day, dressed in simple black, hair blown out, not overdone, no heavy makeup, that sweetly beguiling smile...

If I looked like this I would look at myself all day. It’s amazing to me she can manage to leave her house and have a life. There’s a lack of vanity about her that seems impossible. I’ll be annoying now and attribute it to being French.

And she continues to work with the very best names. Marion has just been confirmed for a role in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion with Matt Damon, Jude Law, and her idol Kate Winslet. Now THAT is a cast. Marion and Kate together? So much Sapphic quiver.
