Marion appears to be more spiritual than religious, or almost Agnostic. She addresses that she believes in a higher power and an afterlife. “So I really think that we are more than just a body with a brain, heart, and soul that lives for a set amount of time”. She says she isn’t Catholic, which is the dominant religion in France, making her most likely just Agnostic.
If she took part in American politics, she would definitely be progressive or liberal. She is extremely passionate about the environment and is even a spokesperson for Greenpeace. She often seems to follow some conspiracy theories, such as the moon landing, saying she finds interest in those perspectives.
Cotillard loves spending time in nature as well as listening to music. The environment is one of her biggest passions in life. She also enjoys listening to music, citing RadioHead as one of her favorites

Cotillard was named as the “Most Bankable French Actress of the 21st Century”. This is due to the fact that in total her films generated more than 37 million ticket sales in France.

As of 2016 this achievement has not been matched.
