Marion Cotillard for 'The Hollywood Reporter' May 2012

Marion Cotillard covers The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue, talks The Dark Knight Rises, names 7 of her favorite films and more.

On being offered the role in The Dark Knight Rises by Inception director Christopher Nolan: “I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, his next movie is supposed to be Batman!’ And I’ve always been obsessed with Batman.”

On growing up: “I really didn’t know how I would spend my life. I didn’t like anything about myself – my looks, my personality. I was very, very angry … I was living in an HLM [the projects in Paris]. I come from ‘la cite.’ That’s who I am. As they’d say here, ‘I’m still this girl from the Bronx.’”

On not being used to having the paparazzi all over her all the time: "I was 4-1/2 months pregnant and I went to this store in Paris. I was in the dressing room and looked at my belly, and they took a picture! It was horrible. It really made me sick physically."

On traveling to the Congo to see how she could help Greenpeace preserve what’s left after industrial logging has decimated much of the natural beauty: "The first days, I was totally depressed. I thought, There's nothing we can do to save this forest. But now I think we can change things, if we really want to."

7 of her favorite films: The Great Dictator (1940), It's a Wonderful Life (1946), I Am Cuba (1964), The Party (1968), The Elephant Man (1980), The King and the Mockingbird (1980), Tandem (1987).
