Marion Cotillard - Marion Cotillard praises Jacques Audiard's 'authenticity'

Marion Cotillard has praised Jacques Audidard's ''authenticity''.

The Oscar-winning French actress plays lead character Stephanie in Jacques' new film 'Rust and Bone' and describes the experience of working with the 'A Prophet' director as an ''exploration''.

Recalling the time she spent with him, Marion said: ''It was one of the most interesting experiences I've had with a director. He doesn't come on set with something very specific; it's an exploration every day.

''He's always seeking authenticity. We would try a scene many ways, but even when a take was totally different, the direction would always point the same way.

''And the take we finally chose was enriched by all the exploration around it.''

The brunette beauty also revealed how thrilled she was when Jacques asked her to audition for the covetable role as a killer whale trainer who forms a bond with Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) after a tragic accident, and admits she was taken aback at how ''real'' the love story was.

Speaking to Deadline's AwardsLine she added: ''I always wanted to work with Jacques Audiard, so I was thrilled when he asked to meet with me.

''I expected a very special story from him because all his movies are very special, but what I didn't expect was a real love story.

''And I fell in love with the character -- the evolution of her, the complexity. And how she goes from anger to power is something that really moved me.''
