French actress Marion Cotillard is not a household name … yet. But her Oscar-nominated performance in La Vie En Rose, playing the late French chanteuse Edith Piaf, is nothing short of brilliant. She deserves to take home the Oscar, and then the whole world will know of this bright, young acting talent.

I met the delightful French actress for 7 questions for 7x7.

Enjoy!

“Everyone loves Cox.” That’s what actor John C. Reilly bellowed from the stage as he performed for one night only as the legendary Dewey Cox.

This was no ordinary rock concert, it was pants down, one of the most rip-roaringly funny and brilliant live performances I have ever witnessed.
