MARION COTILLARD (Dr. Leonora Orantes) won a Best Actress Academy Award® for her performance in the 2007 film "La Vie en Rose,” making her the first actress to earn an Oscar® for a performance in the French language.

In addition, she was named Best Actress by critics' organizations worldwide, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the London Film Critics Circle.

Earlier this year, Cotillard appeared in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris,” starring opposite Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson in a romantic comedy that explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.
