Highlights from Miss Cotillard's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Madame Figaro!
On enjoying being a 36-year-old woman:
"When you are a teenager or young adult, you do not enjoy. One asks too many questions, too many choices present themselves and everything is complicated. You are lost in a vast world. Now that I'm older, I better understand human beings and I know me better myself ... I love life!"
On her affection for the States:
"I like being in New York, I love being in LA, I love being in Chicago. I would not say that I feel American, but I admit: part of my heart is now American."
On opting to reside in France for her son:
"I want my child to live in France, he sees his family, he meets the children of my friends ... Therefore, I had to refuse several wonderful roles. The actress in my heart was broken but my mom heart is so happy to return to France and enjoy my life with him. I will visit the park with all the nannies!"
