French actress Marion Cotillard and American director Tim Burton were honoured at the French culture ministry recently.
Cotillard, 34, received one of France’s highest cultural honours at a ceremony in Paris, and was made a knight in the Order of the Arts and Letters by Culture Minister Frederic Mitterand.
Burton, 51, who directed Alice in Wonderland, was also honoured and made a knight, and after receiving his green and gold medallion, said he had always loved France and felt a special connection with the French public.
“I feel much more at home here than I do in my own country and I thank you very much,” the BBC quoted him as saying.
