OK, that’s about as good as my French gets. But, as we count down the days to Oscar night, here’s a picture of last year’s tres jolie best actress winner, Marion Cotillard. The lovely Frenchwoman won best actress for her mesmerizing performance as Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose,” wearing a gown that always makes me murmur, “le poisson, le poisson . . . ”
And here’s Marion as Edith (with the real Piaf in the screen on the left). Nice transformation, no?
