has a steamy, yet sophisticated spread inside of the latest issue of INTERVIEW magazine, featuring an interview by her co-star from “Nine”, Nicole Kidman (part of it featured below).
KIDMAN: …We should talk about all the films you have out. Inception—I saw the trailer in a cinema in Nashville the other day. Everyone in the audience responded to it.
COTILLARD: I love the story because it has a beautiful balance between an action movie and a movie about dreams. I have a very busy nightlife in my dreams. [laughs]
KIDMAN: It’s about being able to enter people’s dreams and control them, isn’t it?
COTILLARD: Cobb [Leonardo DiCaprio’s character] is a specialist in entering people’s dreams. He tries to steal things out of them and manipulate the dreamer’s unconscious. It’s really an interesting idea to enter someone else’s dreams. I would love to be able to do that.
KIDMAN: I couldn’t bear it if anyone was privy to my dreams. It would be like reading my diary.
COTILLARD: You know what? I would love to go into an animal’s dream—like a lion’s or a cat’s. I’m sure that’s pretty awesome.
KIDMAN: I love that feeling when you wake up after a nightmare and go, “Oh, it’s not happening,” when it’s been so vivid and so real. I love that moment when you realize it was just a dream. Then there are those, which I had a lot of when I was young, where you wish that the dream had been real.
COTILLARD: Like flying in dreams . . .
Nolan is a genius. I loved it. From the amazing cast, to the concept to the score, the film had me hooked from the start. Leonardo DiCaprio never fails to deliver a stellar performance. Joined by the likes of Marion, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page and Michael Caine, everyone’s characters help to add the many layers and textures to the well-crafted story. I don’t want to give away too much, but it is most definitely worth watching. One of the BEST movies to come out in the past few years…
Cotillard is set to head back to Paris, her home, to film Woody Allen’s next project. This woman is wonderful.
