After being enrolled in acting classes as an after-school activity, she was soon discovered by an agent. Mila Kunis appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 15th birthday, playing Jackie Burkhart on the television series That ’70s Show. In September 1999, she began voicing Meg Griffin on the animated series Family Guy. Mila Kunis breakout film role came in 2008, playing Rachel Jansen in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Her role as Lily in the movie Black Swan (2010) gained her worldwide prominence. She received the Premio Marcello Mastroianni for Best Young Actor or Actress at the 67th Venice International Film Festival, and nominations for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

Marion Cotillard was born on September 30, 1975 in Paris, France. Her father is Jean-Claude Cotillard, an actor, playwright and director, and her mother is Niseema Theillaud, an actress and drama teacher. Her first prominent screen role was as Lilly Bertineau in Gérard Pirès’s Taxi (1998), a role which she reprised in two sequels: Taxi 2 (2000) and Taxi 3 (2003), this role earned her first César award nomination for Most Promising Actress in 1999. In 2001, she starred in Pretty Things (2001) as the twin sisters Marie and Lucie, and was nominated for her second César award for Most Promising Actress for her performance. Marion Cotillard`s breakthrough in France came in 2003 when she starred in the film Love Me If You Dare (2003) as Sophie Kowalsky, the daughter of Polish immigrants, opposite her friend at the time Guillaume Canet, with whom she would have a relationship four years later. Her first movie in Hollywood was Tim Burton’s Big Fish (2003), years later she starred in Ridley Scott’s A Good Year (2006) alongside Russell Crowe. In 2005, Cotillard won the César award (France’s equivalent to the Oscar) for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Tina Lombardi in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s A Very Long Engagement (2004). In 2007, Marion Cotillard received international recognition for her iconic portrayal of Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007). Director Olivier Dahan cast Marion Cotillard to play the legendary French singer because to him, her eyes were like those of “Piaf”. The fact that she can sing also helped Marion Cotillard land the role of “Piaf”, although most of the singing in the film is that of Piaf’s. The role won her the Academy Award for Best Actress along with a César, a BAFTA Award, and a Golden Globe. That made her only the second actress to win an acting Oscar performing in a language other than English next to Sophia Loren (Two Women (1960)). Only two male performers (Roberto Benigni for Life Is Beautiful (1997) and Robert De Niro for The Godfather: Part II (1974)) have won an Oscar for solely non-English parts. Trevor Nunn called her portrayal of “Piaf” “one of the greatest performances on film ever”. At the Berlin International Film Festival, where the film premiered, Cotillard was given a 15-minute standing ovation. Marion Cotillard has worked much more frequently in English-language movies following her Academy Award recognition. In 2009, she acted opposite Johnny Depp in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies (2009), and later that year had a role in Rob Marshall’s musical Nine (2009) and received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance as Luisa Contini. Time magazine ranked her as the fifth best performance by a female in 2009. The following year, she took on the main antagonist role in Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010), and in 2011 she had memorable parts in Midnight in Paris (2011) and Contagion (2011) and reteamed with Christopher Nolan in The Dark Knight Rises (2012). In 2011 and 2012 respectively, she appeared on the top of the list of the highest paid actors in France that was released by Le Figaro, she was also the highest paid foreign actress in Hollywood. It was the first time in nine years that a female topped the list.
