Discussing her Oscar for 2007 movie "", where she portrayed French singer Edith Piaf, Marion confesses it took time for the news to sink in. She told the Daily Telegraph, "The movie and the Oscar changed my life in a very good way. It put me in a different universe."

"When I was in Los Angeles during the campaign process for the Academy Awards, I kept telling myself that it was not real life, it was something else. I was having an amazing time and really enjoying the fantasy of it all and then I thought I should stop saying it wasn't real because it was real."

"Inception" is released globally throughout July.
