Marion Cotillard has said she would prefer if her son would not follow in her footsteps and become an actor saying it would 'tear me apart'.

The French actress told Cine Tele Obs about her hopes for her two-year-old son Marcel, "To see him manifest an interest in acting in the future would tear me apart. To be a good actor, you have to have big, big flaws that may never be fixed.

"On the one hand, I would hope he would become a great actor. On the other, I would know his desire would be followed by something very painful."

Cotillard added that she doesn't worry about Marcel growing up in the public eye, "No, because he's going to grow up in this world, regardless. I do everything I can to make sure he doesn't one day resent me for not doing everything I could possibly have done for him."
