Marion Cotillard Speaks Out About Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s Divorce

The Allied actress has confirmed that she is 'expecting' with her partner Guillaume Canet, and has addressed the divorce of her co-star Brad Pitt...

Marion Cotillard has just confirmed that she is expecting her second child with her long-term partner Guillaume Canet.

Taking to her official Instagram account to issue a statement, the actress announced that they are ‘expecting’.

Sadly, though, Marion also felt the need to address the completely untrue speculation that she could have been a factor in the divorce of her co-star Brad Pitt. Sigh.

Of course, there’s no truth in these rumours, and the award-winning actress has shut them down in the most dignified way.

Marion wrote: ‘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.’

Marion continued: ‘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.’

Directly referencing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce, the 40-year-old said: ‘Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very 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. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion
