Marion Cotillard: Actors Are Fragile Creatures

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

Marion CotillardMarion Cotillard believes many actors suffer from substance abuse issues because they are "fragile creatures."

The Dark Knight Rises actress thinks that some of her contemporaries give in to the allure of booze and illegal highs because they are looking for an escape from their stressful 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 38-year-old French star has also revealed her profession has led her to become enthralled with the ideals of the "American Dream" - which is the ideal that everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve prosperity and success. Marion lived in New York for a brief period to learn English and while she was in The Big Apple she fell in love with the way of life in the USA and the ideas Americans hold dear.

Marion Cotillard is Unsure About Charity Work

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Charity,

Marion CotillardMarion Cotillard doesn't know if it is "worth" dedicating her time to charity work.

The 36-year-old actress - who is well known for working with organizations such as Greenpeace - is unsure if being a celebrity actually helps the organizations because she cannot dedicate the time necessary to them:

"I've thought a lot about whether it really changes something if I speak for a cause or an organization. Does it help? Is it worth it? Wangari Maathai, Aung San Suu Kyi, Mandela - they change things. But actors and celebrities? I don't know. Maybe it's because I don't give enough time to people I support. Sometimes I feel like I should choose between being an actress and having the life I have and supporting a cause that needs all the time we have."

Marion - who was born in Paris to actor parents - admits she has often struggled in her life to deal with her own anxieties, but in recent years has made the necessary moves to be more accepting of herself. "I had my own world and wasn't very happy. I was not a very sociable kid. That was my personality. I was very sensitive. I've finally made peace with myself. I've met amazing people who gave me the keys to make peace with myself."
