Happy birthday to La Femme de Hollywood!

Happy birthday to La Femme de HollywoodMarion Cotillard (pronounced "maahiyon koteeyaan") who turns 41 today. She is in the news right now for all the wrong reasons, but that doesn't stop us from wishing her a wonderful birthday. The actress dons many other hats is also a singer-songwriter, environmentalist and spokesperson for Greenpeace. The funny thing though is that she always believed she would become a singer and only became an actress by fluke. In 2014, she was named 'The Most Bankable French Actress of the 21st Century'. The irony game is strong here. 

La demoiselle usually plays a temptress or enchantress in her French films, but she has effectively made her mark in Hollywood, with a wide range of roles. Acting is in her blood – both her parents are actors and they also teach theater art. She began acting during her childhood, appearing on stage in one of her father's plays and made her first screen appearance at the age of 16 in the TV show Highlander. Soon enough she began working in films – with a very successful French film named Taxi (1998) and before we knew it, she graced Hollywood. Below is a list of the top five roles that the elegant woman has absolutely aced.


La Vie En Rose (2007)
Playing the role of iconic French singer Edith Piaf, this made her the first French woman in more than 50 years to bag the Best Actress Oscar. Not just that, she is also the first and only actor to win an Academy Award for a performance in the French language. Her peers must 'en vie' her. Geddit?

Inception (2010)
She plays the psycho ex-wife of the character played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and literally haunts him in his dreams. She worked with the film's director Christopher Nolan again in The Dark Knight Rises, where she plays the role of another villainous character.

Midnight in Paris (2011)
She plays the role of Adriana, the lover of painter Picasso, eventually making the lead character (Owen Wilson) fall in love with her even though she is from another era.

Public Enemies (2009)
Set in the 1930s, Cotillard starred alongside Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in this movie, playing a singer and waitress, immediately becoming the love interest of public enemy no. 1 –John Dillinger.

Two Days, One Night (2014)
In this film, her character has only a weekend to convince her colleagues to give up their bonuses in order to keep her job. She is brimming with emotions in this one, once again showcasing herself as a truly fine actress.
