“She’s Superwoman,” director Christopher Nolan told Vogue. Nolan was so intent on Cotillard being in “Dark Knight Rises” that he adjusted his production schedule around her delivery hospital dates.
Cotillard, who won the Oscar for her performance as Edith Piaf in “La Vie En Rose,” confessed, “I’ve never been more exhausted. But I’ve never had more energy. This is the paradox of being happy. That’s where it comes from.”
