"Contagion" star Marion Cotillard stopped by "The Daily Show" last night, and two curious moments bookended what was otherwise a perfectly charming, if slightly disconnected interview session. Marion talked germs, Jon talked monkey sex, Marion said "asshole," Jon called her adorable. But before and after all that took place, Jon uttered two words... very deliberately... in a manner that indicated he was neither joking nor rushing through a cue card. He said: "Coti-lard." Exactly like that. As if the second half of Marion's last name is "lard." That's what he said to arguably the most astonishing example of classic French loveliness working today. Lard. Please discuss.
