Quiet is kept, we got love for classy ladies here at Complex. Marion Cotillard is just such a dame. She won an Oscar for her role in La Vie en Rose a couple years back, but she's no serious-actress-that's-only-in-it-for-the-art one trick pony—she's also fine as hell! (Yeah, we said we like 'em classy, not that we were classy ourselves.)
The highly anticipated psychological thriller Inception is hitting theaters tomorrow and the sexy-yet-classy Cotillard is gaining Oscar buzz again as she stars along Leonardo DiCaprio. We haven't the foggiest idea what the flick is about, but we'll check it out nonetheless in the hopes that amidst all the minds getting blown, we can see her back getting blown out as well. And even if we can't unspool Inception's plot, we know sexy when we see it, as you'll see with our collection of Marion Cotillard's hottest role. Oui, oui, y'all!
10. PUBLIC ENEMIES (2009)
Character: Billie Frechette
Hottest Scene: Sitting in a restaurant looking good enough for famed bank robber John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) to buy her a fur coat without even knowing her. It ain't trickin' if you got it!
Complex says: Marion displays the finest of elegance in her 1930s lady-gear. Depression our ass—there's a resurgence in our pants!
9. INNOCENCE (2004)
Character: Mademoiselle Eva
Hottest Scene: When she's teaching ballet class.
Complex says: The film, about a mysterious boarding school for young girls, is pretty creepy to watch, but Marion's cans look great in a leotard. Who's classy NOW, huh?!?
8. A GOOD YEAR (2006)
Character: Fanny Chenal
Hottest Scene: Giving Russell Crowe a hard time in a shit-filled pool.
Complex says: Ridley Scott x Russell Crowe sounded cool until we learned this flick was on some schmaltzy love-over-money shit. Likes we said, though, we likes Marion in just 'bout everything.
7. LA BOITE NOIR (2005)
Character: Isabelle Kruger/Alice
Hottest Scene: Sex scene on a table...and on a wall...and finally a bedroom.
Complex says: Nude scene! Bewbs! And she plays a nurse! Done and done.
6. TAXI (1998)
Character: Lilly Bertineau
Hottest Scene: Sex scene wherein she speaks lots and lots of French that we can't understand.
Complex says: Marion's role in Taxi was the first of her big breaks, and we're not surprised her career took off. She plays the hot girlfriend of a taxi driver and looks pret-ty, pret-ty, pret-ty good the whole time.

5. A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT (2004)
Character: Tina Lombardi
Hottest Scene: Getting heated while avenging the death of her lover.
Complex says: She plays a prostitute, but still maintains that classy, elegant look—until she gets her head chopped off by a guillotine (which is a pretty dope way to go if it's your time).
4. NINE (2009)
Character: Luisa Contini
Hottest Scene: Singing a solo in a sleek black dress.
Complex says: It's not manly to watch musicals, but we'll let you slide with this one because it features hotties galore. Marion plus Kate Hudson, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, and even Fergie-Ferg!
3. PRETTY THINGS (2001)
Hottest Scene: When she's naked. Buck-ass naked!
Complex says: We see Marion in full frontal and all its glory, but it's in French so we can just say we're into artsy films. We've always been cineaste men.
2. LOVE ME IF YOU DARE (2003)
Character: Sophie Kowalsky
Hottest Scene: When her right boob peeks out to say hi to us during a sex scene.
Complex says: The early aughts must have been a good time for Marion, because she was signing up for nude scenes left and right. Fine by us! Check this movie out for the crazy truth-or-dare games she plays with her lover.
1. INCEPTION (2010)
Hottest Scene: Leaning forward lots while wearing a low-cut dress.
Complex says: To be honest, as sexy as Marion is, we're just super-hyped to see this movie. Psychological action thriller!!!
