Marion Cotillard Addresses her Much-Maligned Death Scene in 'The Dark Knight Rises'
Marion Cotillard is a talented actress, who's next film to come is Assassin's Creed, while Allied not long arrived which stars herself and Brad Pitt. But while she's considered highly in her field, one brief moment in The Dark Knight Rises has remained something of a joke for everyone who has seen it.
While promoting Allied, Cotillard was questioned about the negative response to the death scene for Talia al Ghul in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy finale. "We're all in the same boat, and if sometimes it gets out of control, then everyone is involved," Cotillard told Allocine (translated from French to English).
"Sometimes there are failures, and when you see this on screen, you're thinking: 'Why? Why did they keep that take?' But either you blame everyone or nobody. But I thought people overreacted, because it was tough to be identified just with this scene. When I'm doing the best I can to find the authenticity in eveyr character that I'm playing, it's tough to be known just for this scene."
"Yes, it's important to know how to laugh about this, and also, there are worse things in life," she continued. "Even if there are things that can hurt you. But I wasn't really affected by this. I just though the reaction was disproportionate, and it helps to laugh about it."
