OUCH! Oscar-winner Cotillard stuck with award pin
Cotillard has spent much of her time in Hollywood since winning the Oscar for her performance as the singer Edith Piaf in “La vie en rose” in 2008 but she was back in Paris to receive the decoration from Culture Minister Francois Mitterrand.
The French culture minister is Frédéric Mitterrand, not François (the former, deceased President).
Of course. We corrected: GBU Editor
