PARIS - Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard was among those put forward for the Legion d'Honneur, France's highest honour, as the country celebrates its national day on Thursday. The 40-year-old star was among some 650 names from the worlds of politics, culture, sport and public life published in the government's official journal for Bastille Day.  Cotillard was the first French woman since 1960 to win America's top acting prize for her portrayal of singer Edith Piaf in the 2007 "La Vie en rose", and she was nominated again last year for her turn as a depressive mother in "Two Days, One Night".
