Marion Cotillard Declares Heartbreak At Filming Sea Animals In Captivity
Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard has admitted that she felt sickened to watch movie makers film sea animals in captivity for her new movie Rust & Bone.
Marion explained to C magazine that witnessing sea animals such as whales and dolphins kept in small enclosures in captivity at the sea-life centre in Maryland, was heartbreaking.
After the filming experience Marion has declared that she will never visit neither another sea-life centre nor Sea World, as she explained: “I’d rather see whales I their own environment and not in a swimming pool. I will never go back to a Sea World. I really feel uncomfortable in these places, where animals are kept in captivity, so when I got there, I was really anxious, but then I had to do the job.”
Marion, who is an avid Greenpeace activist, admitted that whilst she does respect staff that work with the animals at such sea-life centre’s, she will never fully be able to understand their job.
Meanwhile, animal right’s campaigners have heavily criticized the movie Rust & Bone for promoting the use of dolphins and whales in captivity, with many activists persuading members of the public to boycott the film in cinemas across the world.
