Marion Cotillard Could Be ‘Dark Knight’ Director’s Next Muse

The gorgeous ‘Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘Inception’ star might just be Christopher Nolan’s go-to leading lady from here out.

French-born Marion Cotillard, 37, won an Oscar for La Vien Rose, but it was her starring role in Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan‘s last two projects that made her a superstar in America. She told us EXCLUSIVELY at the premiere of her new indie drama Rust and Bone – hosted by The Cinema Society, Dior and Vanity Fair – she can’t rule out future projects with Hollywood’s best director.

“I think he’s a true artist and what he does is really amazing. To put art and everything he puts in these big movies, it’s really something. He’s very smart and I love being on his set.”

Rust and Bone, opening Nov 16, is the moving story of a whale trainer (Marion) who loses her legs in a horrific accident, but finds reason to live as she falls for a troubled former boxer.

The actress arrived at her premiere in a sheer gown and designer mary-jane pumps which she quickly kicked off her aching feet as she worked the red carpet. When I asked Marion about being named the sexiest woman alive by a Hungarian magazine, the low-key star could do little more than shrug.

“Stuff is nice when people like you, but I don’t know what to say about that.”

With an attitude so laid back, it’s easy to see why good directors cast her over and over.

As a bonus, The Cinema Society hosted the Rust and Bone after-party at trendy Indochine, featuring Belvedere cocktails.

Don’t forget to check out Rust and Bone Nov 16!
