In a conversation with Deadline while promoting her newest film, Little Girl Blue, Marion Cotillard mentioned that although she’s encouraged by the progress of the #MeToo movement, “We still have a long way to go.”
Little Girl Blue is written and directed by Mona Achache, who also plays herself in the film. According to the description, “Through the power of filmmaking, Achache brings her mother back to life to retrace her journey and find out who she really was.”
Cotillard plays Achache’s mother, who committed suicide and left behind a stash of letters and photographs that give a glimpse of the woman she was.

The Midnight in Paris actress told Deadline that she felt a kinship with these women because “a lot of women in this world had experienced this relationship to men. My mother and my grandmother and even further have had this journey through very difficult relationships with men and sexual assault. I was very touched by this quest because it’s a journey to healing.”
Regarding the #MeToo movement, she said that “I always have in mind this woman who goes to another march, another walk with her sign saying ‘I can’t believe I’m still here dealing with this sh*t.’”

She continued, “I’ve been an actress for a long time; I was [put] in situations that I shouldn’t have been in… There still are some sick men, and women sometimes, who will take advantage of the youth, who will take advantage of the passion that we have as an actor, the fact that we depend on the desire of directors, producers.”
“To know that today those young actresses know that this is not right, that if someone asks you something that you’re not comfortable with you can say ‘No,’” she added on a positive note. “I didn’t know that when I was a young actress, it was a very different time.”
