Marion Cotillard: 'I've worked hard to improve my English'

By
Marion Cotillard has admitted that it was quite a challenge to learn English.

The French actress - who won an Oscar for La Vie En Rose - explained to NPR that she studied the English language more seriously after landing Hollywood roles.

"Well, first of all, I love the English language, so it makes it easier [to learn]," she declared.

Cotillard continued: "And also when I was in Los Angeles in 2008, and I met with Michael Mann and he - we did this movie together, I really had to work on my American accent. And I worked for four months, every day, with a dialect coach, and I improved my English a lot.

"I still have a lot of work, but I feel much more comfortable than a few years ago when I got here and I couldn't express myself properly."

Cotillard has landed a variety of high-profile roles in English-language films in recent years, including Nine, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.

Her current French-language romance film Rust and Bone is now playing in the US and the UK.

The actress revealed earlier this week that she went through a "violent" period of weight loss after giving birth to son Marcel in 2011.
