Cotillard was born in Paris, and grew up around Orléans, in an artistically inclined, "bustling, creative household". Her father, Jean-Claude Cotillard, is an actor, teacher, former mime, and 2006 Molière Award-winning director. He is of Breton descent. Cotillard's mother, Niseema Theillaud, who has Kabyle ancestry, is also an actress and drama teacher. Her two younger brothers are twins: Quentin and Guillaume. Guillaume is a screenwriter and director. Cotillard began acting during her childhood, appearing on stage in one of her father's plays.
Early work in French cinema (1993–2002)
After small appearances and performances in theater, Cotillard had occasional, minor roles in television series such as Highlander - where she had her first English-speaking role at age 17, appearing as Lori Bellian in the episode "Nowhere to Run", she also had an uncredited role in the episode "Saving Grace", in which she appeared giving birth in one scene. But her career as a film actress began in the mid-1990s, with small but noticeable roles in films like L' Histoire du garçon qui voulait qu'on l'embrasse, Arnaud Desplechin's My Sex Life... or How I Got Into an Argument and the comedy La Belle Verte directed by Coline Serreau.
In 1996, Cotillard had her first leading role in the TV film Chloé, playing the title role, a teenage runaway who is forced into prostitution, co-starring Anna Karina. In 1998, she appeared in Gérard Pirès' action comedy Taxi, playing Lili Bertineau, girlfriend of delivery boy Daniel. The film was a hit in France and she was nominated for a César Award for Most Promising Actress. Cotillard reprised the role in two sequels: Taxi 2 and Taxi 3. She then ventured into science fiction with Alexandre Aja's post-apocalyptic romantic drama, Furia in 1999. That same year, Cotillard starred in the Swiss war drama film War in the Highlands (La Guerre dans le Haut Pays), for which she won the Best Actress Award at the Autrans Film Festival in 1999.
In 2001, she appeared in Pierre Grimblat's film Lisa, playing the title role and younger version of Jeanne Moreau's character, co-starring with Benoît Magimel and Sagamore Stévenin. In the same year, she starred in Gilles Paquet-Brenner's film Pretty Things (Les Jolies Choses), adapted from the work of feminist writer Virginie Despentes. In the drama, Cotillard portrayed twins of completely opposite characters, Lucie and Marie, and she was nominated for a César Award for Most Promising Actress for her performance.
In 2002, she appeared in Guillaume Nicloux's thriller A Private Affair (Une Affaire Privée), where she portrayed the mysterious Clarisse.
Move to Hollywood (2003–2006)
In 2003, Cotillard had a notable supporting role in Tim Burton's film Big Fish, it was her first American film and she appeared alongside Helena Bonham Carter, Albert Finney, Ewan McGregor, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lange and Allison Lohman. In the film she plays Joséphine, the French wife of William Bloom (Crudup). In the same year, she starred in the French romantic comedy film Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d'enfants), as Sophie Kowalsky, the daughter of Polish immigrants. The film was directed by Yann Samuel and was a box office hit in France.
In 2004, she won the Chopard Trophy of Female Revelation at the Cannes Film Festival. She also appeared in two critically acclaimed films: Jean-Pierre Jeunet's A Very Long Engagement (Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles), as the vengeful Tina Lombardi, for which she won a César Award for Best Supporting Actress, and the mystery thriller Innocence, as Mademoiselle Éva.
In 2005, Cotillard starred in six films: Steve Suissa's romantic drama Cavalcade as Alizée; in Abel Ferrara's religious drama Mary, alongside Forest Whitaker and Juliette Binoche; portrayed Isabelle Kruger and Alice in the thriller film The Black Box (La Boîte Noire), directed by Richard Berry; starred in the romantic comedy Love Is in the Air (Ma vie en l'air); in the drama Burnt Out (Sauf le respect que je vous dois) and Edy, directed by Stéphan Guérin-Tillié.
In 2006, the actress starred in four films, including Ridley Scott's romantic comedy A Good Year, in which she portrayed Fanny Chenal, a French café owner in a small Provençal town, opposite Russell Crowe as a Londoner who inherits a local property; the Belgian comedy Dikkenek alongside Mélanie Laurent, appeared in Fair Play as Nicole and in the satirical coming-of-age film Toi et moi, for which she learned to play the cello for her role.
La Vie en Rose and breakthrough (2007–2008)
Cotillard was chosen by director Olivier Dahan to portray the French singer Édith Piaf in the biopic La Vie en Rose before he had even met her, saying that he noticed a similarity between Piaf's and Cotillard's eyes. Producer Alain Goldman accepted and defended the choice even though distributors TFM reduced the money they gave to finance the film thinking Cotillard wasn't "bankable" enough an actress. Her portrayal was widely praised, including by the eminent theatre director Sir Trevor Nunn, who described it as "one of the greatest performances on film ever." At the Berlin International Film Festival, where the film premiered, Cotillard was given a 15-minute standing ovation. It was dubbed "the most awaited film of 2007" in France, where some critics said that she had reincarnated Édith Piaf to sing one last time on stage.
She is the first actress to win a Golden Globe for a foreign language performance since 1972, when Liv Ullmann won for The Emigrants. She is also the first person to win a (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe for a foreign language performance. On 10 February 2008, Cotillard became the first French actress to be awarded the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role since Stéphane Audran in 1973.
On 22 February 2008, she was awarded the César Award for Best Actress for her performance in La Vie en Rose. Alain Delon presented the award and announced the winner as "La Môme Marion" (The Kid Marion), also praising her on stage saying: "Marion, I give you this César. I think this César is for a great great actress, and I know what I'm talking about". Two days later, on 24 February 2008 at the Academy Awards, she won Best Actress, becoming the first woman and second person (after Adrien Brody, The Pianist) to win both a César and an Oscar for the same performance. Cotillard is the second French cinema actress to win this award and the third overall to receive an Academy Award after Simone Signoret in 1960 and Juliette Binoche in 1997. She is the first Best Actress winner in a non-English language performance since Sophia Loren's win in 1961. She is also the first and (as of 2016) only winner of an Academy Award for a performance in the French language. In her Oscar acceptance speech, Cotillard proclaimed "thank you life, thank you love" and, speaking of Los Angeles, said "it is true, there is some angels (sic) in this city!" The day following the ceremony, Cotillard was congratulated and praised by the President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, in a statement saying,
I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Marion Cotillard, who has just received the Oscar for Best Actress for her masterful interpretation of Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, directed by Olivier Dahan. Half a century after Simone Signoret, a French artist has received the Best Actress award at the Oscars. It was a good omen that Catherine Allegret, Simone Signoret's daughter, herself had a role in La Vie en Rose. Marion Cotillard embodies an Édith Piaf who is unsettling in her realism, emotion and passion. Her interpretation brings to life the story of a woman who gave French chanson its acclaim and authenticity; a singer, too, who closely united France and America.
La Vie En Rose was partly a Czech production, as Cotillard mentioned in her César acceptance speech. On 1 March 2008, Cotillard won a Czech Lion Award for Best Actress. She could not attend the ceremony in Prague due to the filming of Public Enemies. Her friend Pavlína Němcová – who played the journalist in La vie en Rose – was there to accept the award on her behalf.
Cotillard won a total of 27 awards for her performance in La Vie en Rose.
Widespread recognition (2009–2012)
Cotillard starred alongside Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in Public Enemies, which was released in the United States on 1 July 2009.

The film premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and received a ten-minute standing ovation at the end of its screening. Cate Blanchett wrote an op-ed for Variety praising Cotillard's performance in Rust and Bone, describing it as "simply astonishing" and said that "Marion has created a character of nobility and candour, seamlessly melding herself into a world we could not have known without her. Her performance is as unexpected and as unsentimental and raw as the film itself". She also received several honors and career tributes at Telluride Film Festival, Hollywood Film Festival, AFI Fest, Gotham Awards and Harper's Bazaar Awards.
In 2013, Cotillard was named Hasty Pudding Theatricals' Woman of the Year by Harvard students. She was also ranked the 2nd highest paid actress in France in 2012.

She then co-starred in Guillaume Canet's Blood Ties, alongside Clive Owen, Billy Crudup and again Matthias Schoenaerts, the film premiering at Cannes in the same week that The Immigrant premiered. Cotillard also had a cameo in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, acting opposite Jim Carrey as a Canadian anchor. From November to December 2013, she was a member of the jury of the 13th Marrakech Film Festival that was presided by Martin Scorsese.

The installation replaced a giant march for climate change which was forbidden by French authorities following the deadly attacks in the capital on November 13, which cost 130 lives. It was a way of showing the determination of protesters in their fight against climate change, and allowed them to still send a strong message on the eve of the U.N. climate conference (COP21).
