Marion Cotillard, the gorgeous French actress who seduced moviegoers in “Midnight in Paris” and 2009’s sexy musical “Nine,” was stunning on the red carpet at the AFI Film Fest in Los Angeles. She appeared for the debut of her new film “Rust and Bone.”

Cotillard, 37, plays a marine biologist and trainer of killer whales who meets a neer-do-well bar bouncer played by Matthias Schoenaerts.
