During their Q&A session with the publication, the "Contagion" star and "28 Days Later" beauty opened up about beginning their lives in Tinseltown and shared details on how they handle the pressures of the biz.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Cotillard and Miss Harris' interview below. For more, be sure to visit ELLE!

Marion
On acting:
"When I was a kid, I started to have a lot of questions about human beings, and I was a troubled child because of all of these questions. I guess that's why I became an actress. Not only because my parents were actors and, yeah, it's a beautiful thing to tell stories, but I think I became an actress because I wanted to explore this- to explore what a human being is."

Naomi
On standing up for herself:
"On my first film, I played a stowaway on a ship heading to Germany, and the director told me I was going to be thrown into the sea. But he didn't have any stunt coordinators! I told him I would agree to be pushed over the side, but only if I could watch him getting pushed over first. Both of us stayed dry."
