SHOW BITS: Marion Cotillard dreams of doing comedy

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Marion Cotillard, nominated for best actress for her emotional portrayal of a woman struggling with depression in "Two Days, One Night," says she'd actually like to start doing comedy.

"I hope we're going to see more of me in comedies," she said on the Oscar red carpet. "I wish I can find my way into comedies. Sometimes it's hard to live with dark ... characters all the time."

She added that she didn't see the movie as just a woman's story, although it relates the struggles her character faces to hold onto her factory job.

"She's a woman, but I don't think it's just a struggle of a woman," she said. "Men and women can face the absurdity of our society's choosing money over human people."
