Trivia:

In 2014, during the Press Conference of How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) at the Cannes Film Festival, a journalist asked Blanchett who's better between her and Marion Cotillard, she answered saying that Cotillard is better and praised her performances in La Vie en Rose (2007) and Rust and Bone (2012) and also said that she couldn't wait to see Cotillard as Lady Macbeth [in Macbeth (2015)].
