Marion Cotillard and her handsome Rust and Bone costar Matthias Schoenaerts had a full first day at the Toronto International Film Festival, going right from press to their red carpet premiere on Thursday evening. In the movie, Marion plays a woman who loses her legs in an accident, and immediately after the first press screening Oscar buzz kicked in for the actress. The very handsome but less well-known Matthias also quickly garnered acclaim for his performance. Marion spoke about the sex scenes and role, saying, "The sex and the flesh is really part of the story, and it had to be in the movie. You know when you rediscover your body, love, life . . . there's something very deep and strong, and both characters are, I think, very sexy." Marion and Matthias stuck together at their official red carpet premiere and afterparty. Across town, Marion's The Dark Knight Rises costar Joseph Gordon-Levitt was showing off his own latest, Looper, and the two had a chance to connect at LAX before heading on their own TIFF journeys.
