Marion Cotillard Dispels Rumours, Announces Pregnancy: Statement
Following on from the news - read the announcement HERE - that the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is over, French actress Marion Cotillard, who is married to French actor / director Guillaume Canet, found herself at the centre of the media storm, and has had to repond to rumours she has had an affair with her current co-star Brad.
Sources (it's always the 'sources') had told sites like Page Six that a private investigator had confirmed that Bradwas having an affair with Marion while they filmed their upcoming film 'Allied'.
To prove timing is everything, the trailer dropped soon after - see it HERE.
Today, she refuted the affair claims... with class.
She also announced she is pregnant with her second child with Guillaume; they already have a five year-old son named Marcel.
The actress also sent well wishes to both Jolie and Pitt during "this tumultuous moment":
"This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into.
I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.
Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.
Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery.
Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment.
