Marion Cotillard: actors are fragile creatures. She is a French actress and she acted in Rust and Bone and The Dark Knight Rises and she is expresses that many stars do suffer form substance abuse because this is the way they are. She thinks that some of her contemporaries give in to the allure of booze and illegal highs just to get some mind though away from their hectic careers.
When asked why she thinks so many actors succumb to alcohol and drugs, Marion said:
“Actors are fragile creatures. The wider the gap, the more vulnerable we are. Any form of escape can seem good. You have to navigate through the different emotions because you’re placed in tough positions as an actor. Everything we give in a performance can come back to torture.”
The thirty eight year old also says that being in this career gave her insight of the American dream, which is the ideal that everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve prosperity and success. She once resided in New York for a little time to learn the English language, she just love the way of life and ideas that Americans hold dear.
Speaking the latest French issue of ELLE magazine, she said:
“In a certain respect, yes (I love the American dream). And I love their language. Three years before ‘La Môme’, I came to New York to take an English language course with Berlitz. I didn’t become an actress with the aim of having a career in the US, my dream didn’t have any geographical boundaries, but just after filming Tim Burton’s ‘Big Fish’, I was looking forward to speaking the language fluently because my poor English from my school days was a problem on set. This love of English comes from my childhood, I grew up on American culture. Their music, cinema and literature were part of me.”
