Marion Cotillard On “Feeling Free” & Staying In The Moment

Oscar winning actress Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose) teams with the Dardenne Brothers in the drama Two Days, One Night, the story of a woman who visits her co-workers to convince them to forego their bonuses to help her keep her job.

The picture opens in New York and Los Angeles December 24, and last week Cotillard was in Los Angeles to promote the movie. During the interviews, I asked Cotillard how she stays in the moment as an actress.

For Cotillard, having a good director behind the camera is of utmost importance, as well as developing a bond with the film’s cast and crew.

“If I feel free and if there’s a strong connection with the people I work with, it’s not hard for me to stay in the character.” 

To hear Cotillard elaborate on the importance of feeling free in her work (she also mentions La Vie en Rose in the clip), listen to the audio below:
