Marion Cotillard - Marion Cotillard: 'I Wanted To Win Brutus Award For Poor Acting'

Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard was quietly hoping to win France's equivalent of the Golden Raspberry Award for her role in 2010 film Le Dernier Vol - so she could let her "bad" director know exactly what she thought of him.

The La Vie En Rose star was nominated for a Brutus award for portraying a woman searching for her lost lover in the Sahara desert in the poorly-received Karim Dridi movie - and she admits she would have attended the ceremony if she knew the dishonour was hers.

Cotillard tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I really wanted to have it. I had my acceptance speech made: 'Without this director, none of this would have been possible...'"

The actress admits it was a terrible shoot and she's still upset with herself for fighting for the director's vision.

She adds, "I fell in love with the project and then I spent two months in the middle of the desert wanting to kill him (Dridi). I wanted to kill myself because I fought for him and he was so bad... He had no idea of what we were doing."
