Lucky, not brave

'Rust and Bone' lunch took place at Brasserie Ruhlmann

Applause greeted Marion Cotillard’s arrival at Sony Pictures Classics’ “Rust and Bone” lunch at Brasserie Ruhlmann on Tuesday. Meanwhile, her lesser known co-star, Matthias Schoenaerts, proved to be a veritable magnet for the ladies who lunch.

As Schoenaerts tablehopped, a delighted SPC chief Michael Barker observed, “I can’t get the women to leave him alone, and you can see why.”

The actors in Jacques Audiard’s edgy romantic drama of two physically and emotionally damaged people are being called “brave” and “courageous.”

“Actors who do movies in a country who don’t have freedom to express yourself, that’s courage,” Cotillard said. “I’d say I’m lucky. I want to take risks as an actress, but someone who saves lives is courageous, someone who is in a country who’s not free to speak and speaks. For me there’s nothing courageous about going to a set.”

Schoenaerts said, “It was a challenge to take on such an ambiguous character, that’s for sure. Brave? I don’t know.”

The two have reteamed for the New York-made actioner “Blood Ties,” directed by Guillaume Canet, Cotillard’s companion.

Schoenaerts’ bare-knuckle fights are a highlight of “Rust” but for “Blood Ties” he promised, “I’m the sweetest guy on the planet in that film. Absolutely.”
