“I am indeed totally calmed down by motherhood. I wasn’t particularly stressed before, but I feel a lot of bliss, a real sparkle,” the Oscar-winning beauty tells the French edition of Elle magazine. “With my son, we haven’t been together for a long time, but I feel like he’s always been there and I have never learnt so much since being with him.”
Marion also gives insight into her baby name pick, revealing that she settled on Marcel long before she ever got pregnant.
“Actually, this name comes from a lot of different roots, because I have several Marcels in my family,” she says. “The first time that I thought about calling my son Marcel, if one day I had a son, was years ago. I was on a boat, in Japan with some friends, and they told me that they called their son Marcel, and I found it sublime.”
Though her son is only a couple of months old, Marion is already back to work – she’s hard at work on the “kids-friendly set” of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises.
