Marion Cotillard feels lucky to be able to make movies in both Hollywood and her native France.

The actress - who is being tipped for a second Oscar for her performance in new French film Rust And Bone - has managed to switch between English-language movies and those in her mother tongue since starring in the 2007 hit La Vie En Rose.

She revealed: "I'm very happy and I feel very lucky to have the possibility and opportunity to work in two countries that really built my desire to be an actress.

"When I was a kid, I watched a lot of American movies and even though I never thought I would have the opportunity to work in the US, their movies are part of my culture so I feel blessed."

Marion plays an orca whale trainer at a water park who is mutilated in a horrific work accident in Rust And Bone, from the writer-director Jacques Audiard.

She paid tribute to the "genius" filmmaker.

"Amazing is not enough," she added.
