    He looks like a French Noah Wyle. That baby is going to be adorable.

    Marion Cotillard is so beautiful and voluptuous. This incredibly gorgeous and curvaceous young woman is pure French perfection. I love her. She’s a really sweet girl.

    Marion Cotillard is my favourite French actress. I have been a fan of her ever since I first saw her in A Good Year (2006). The Dark Knight Rises (2012) is one of the forthcoming films that I am most looking forward to and it is really great that she is now joining the Batman franchise for the final film in the series, especially since it is so soon after she has given birth.
    Put yourself in her position. You’re pregnant with your first child. You probably want to take time off after you give birth. Are you really going to run back to work just to play a character who’s basically a red herring and give up quality time with your baby for such a role? I doubt it. This had to be a good role for someone like Cotillard to sign on.

    Interesting name choice. I can only hear her saying it in that screechy Edith Piaf voice from La Vie en Rose: “Marcel! MARCEL!!!!”

    Amazing that the EW writer omitted that they co-starred in the 2003 French film released in the US as Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d’enfants). It is an extremely dark romance – but the chemistry was there.
