Canet, who had been a top-level junior rider, also participated in the Style and Competition event. Going for a “Grease” theme, he dressed up as John Travolta and arrived in a yellow Cadillac cabriolet. He traded the costume for a chic black suit on Sunday. The actor, who took part in several of masters’ courses, said he intends to ease up on shooting next year to focus on riding and writing his next film, “a nutty comedy.”
Cotillard confessed she is not a rider. “I just pet horses,” she said. Sporting an Erdem dress, with her two-year old on her lap, she said he has been in the saddle since he is one. “He is obsessed with horses,” she said, pointing at the horse toys he had strewn on the table.
Cotillard will appear next in an adaptation of “Macbeth” opposite Michael Fassbender. “The shooting starts next month in Scotland and London. It is the first time I play Lady Macbeth. I played it in drama school, but it is the first time in Shakespeare’s text,” she explained.

Liberation: You’re about to play a part in Macbeth, one of Shakespeare’s best known pieces. What can you tell us about it?
Marion Cotillard: I’ve always dreamed about it and I’ve always been convinced that I’d play Lady Macbeth one day. Only in my mind it would happen on stage and in French. I worked on one of her scenes when I was a student and that was when I knew that one day I’d portray this character. However, I never thought that I could play Shakespeare in the original version. The script is difficult to understand but I’m very delighted about the opportunity that’s been offered to me. I’m aware that asking a French woman to portray Lady Macbeth is a risk for the filmmakers. So I hope to be up to par.
