Marion Cotillard says she never sees a role as a "challenge".

The Oscar-winning actress, 37, stars in Jacques Audiard's French drama Rust And Bone as a whale trainer who has lost her leg in a workplace accident.

She said of playing a paraplegic: "I never see a role as a challenge. It was powerful, one of the most powerful roles I've had.

"You learn a little more about the human soul with each movie you do, each character you take and each person you try to understand."

The La Vie En Rose star said of the film: "When I read the script, I realised it was something I had never done before. I don't tell many love stories and this one is very unusual. I totally fell in love with all the characters."

She added: "I didn't do any research about what it is to have lost a part of your body, because what was very important for me was that what she gained after the accident was much more than what she'd lost."

:: Rust And Bone opens in cinemas on Friday, November 2.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
