Marion Cotillard on Nicole Kidman in ‘Rabbit Hole’

Actors on actors

“The journey that Nicole Kidman took me on in ‘Rabbit Hole’ started with very subtle and odd behavior. I didn’t know anything about her story, but right away, the very first time I saw her I felt deeply for her character Becca.

Becca is so far and yet so close at the same time. The space that is created between her and the audience is simultaneously delicate, strong, violent and full of life. A part of her is gone and will always be gone, yet you feel nothing but life.

Even though this sense of life doesn’t know how and where to hang on inside her soul, it is vibrant nonetheless. Nicole created her character’s journey like a meditation. When Becca doesn’t protect herself and instead jumps into her pain, not fighting against it but surrendering to it, she takes us with her towards light. I felt what she felt. I cried with her. I understood every fragment of her inner disaster and the way she survived. Nicole is at the same time a rough and a cut diamond. She has a very simple and direct way to enter your heart. She shares her emotion in the most generous way. She is simply one of the world’s best actresses.”
