Marion Cotillard reveals cheeky on-set pranks with partner Guillaume Canet

Marion Cotillard and her husband Guillaume Canet have a lot of fun together! Although she is preparing for the release of her latest movie, Assassin's Creed, Marion still remembers the fun she had working on a French film in 2003 with her Guillaumet. During the upcoming episode of The Graham Norton Show, the Hollywood star opened up about the mischief they would get up to on-set.

"The film was called Love Me If You Dare and we started doing stupid things," she explained. "One day I gave him a Polaroid camera," she continued, adding that her cheeky dare was for her husband to take a picture of someone's backside. "I should have said I wanted a woman’s bottom because one of the crew was happy to pull down his pants straight away!"

In return, her long-term partner dared her to take an even racier picture of a member of the opposite sex. "If I didn’t I had to walk across the whole set naked!" she laughed. Asked if she got the shot, she replied: "Of course!"

Marion Cotillard has opened up about her cheeky on-set pranks

Marion, 41, has been in a relationship with French actor and director Guillaume, 43, since 2007. The couple are parents to a five-year-old son Marcel and have another child on the way.

The Hollywood actress, who recently starred alongside Brad Pitt, also opened up about playing Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, for which she won an Oscar Award in 2007. "It was the first time I had trouble getting rid of a character," she said. "I was ashamed of that because it was a job and as an actress I shouldn’t have been affected by a role. But I had lived six months with her and entered another dimension.

"I didn't see my friends or family because when I did they would find me weird, with my shaved head and eyebrows, and I didn't like it. It took me a while to shake her off. When you do movies a lot of the time you fall in love with the person, and then at the last 'cut' you will never share your life with that person again - it can be brutal."

Joining Marion on the sofa will be her Assassin's Creed co-star Michael Fassbender, fellow actor James McAvoy and comedian Frank Skinner as well as Olympic silver medallists Gary and Paul O’Donovan. The New Year special will air on BBC1 on Saturday night, from 10.25pm.
