The Paris, France native also mentioned that she was terrified by what she heard, read, and saw on the news. “The long queues at the food banks, the sharp increase in domestic violence, the school closures… It was horrid,” she added.
During the second lockdown, in late October 2020, Cottin tested positive for COVID-19 after coming in contact with someone who had tested positive at the French TV festival Cannes Series.
