Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet have recently shared a special moment during the preview of their highly anticipated film, “Asterix and Obelix: The Evil Empire”, which will be released on February 1. During the event, Guillaume Canet told his two children (Marcel and Louise) how much he loves them and that the film was largely dedicated to them.
In an exclusive interview with Madame Figaro, Marion Cotillard expressed her admiration for Guillaume Canet and his way of directing the shooting. “Guillaume distills something deeply human in his way of approaching stories. He allows his actors to invent, he is very committed to the creation of each role. He will always seek to retrace the emotional journey of each character. Psychology is his priority, even in a comedy”, said the 47-year-old actress.
Cotillard also revealed that he found Guillaume Canet very serene when shooting the film, despite the difficulties that arose. “I found him very serene on the set of Asterix and Obelix, when he threw himself into a gigantic machine and had to brave innumerable difficulties, in particular meteorological difficulties,” she said.
The two stars have been collaborating together since 2002 and have worked on numerous projects together such as “Les Petits Mouchoirs” (2010), “The Last Flight” (2009), “Rock’n’Roll” (2017) and “We Will End Up Together” (2019).
