Marion Cotillard’s quote about her Donostia Award :
« I find it quite nice to receive an award without there being a competition. I’ve always found the competition quite curious, even though I participate in it because it’s also the life of a film to receive certain awards sometimes, and every time I received one, it was mostly honoring the film in my opinion. Even if an award that celebrates a career is very bewildering, it makes me very happy to join this group of wonderful actresses and actors who have received it before me. « And it is always a great pleasure for me to come back to Spain. »
Marion Cotillard’s quote about her CHANEL Haute Couture dress :
« I thought it was gorgeous at the Haute Couture show last January, which I was lucky enough to attend, and I immediately wanted to wear it. I’ve had a few missed opportunities so I’m very happy to wear it for this special occasion. I love that it hints at body parts, that it hides them without hiding them completely, that it subtly highlights them, it gives it a mysterious side. I also love the little jeweled belt and that’s what I like so much about this dress: there are things that are hidden, others that are revealed.”
