Besides acting, French beauty Marion Cotillard has another hidden talent. She can sing quite well and is looking forward to showcasing her singing talents again in the near future.

The Inception actress recently toured for two months with her musician friend Yodelice, playing a variety of instruments and singing under the name Simone, Interview magazine reported.

“I was in Los Angeles last January, a friend called me up who goes by the name Yodelice. He said, ‘Would you come to the studio? I would love for you to sing one of my songs.’ So I went down and ended up going from a background singer to being in a duet. Then my friend said he was playing at the Olympia in Paris and asked me if I would sing with him there and I said, ‘Oh, yeah, of course’,” she said.

However, the 34-year-old actress had to change her name to pursue singing. “I changed my name, of course. I said, ‘I can't be Marion Cotillard.’ We ended up using Simone, which is my other grandmother’s name. She passed away many years ago but always wanted to be a singer,” Cottilard said.
