Marion Cotillard Has A Fiery Response Over Accusations She Had An Affair With Brad Pitt
As the media furore continues after the announcement that Angelina Jolie is divorcing her partner of 12 years, Brad Pitt, we're starting to see the hurtful implications of 'rumours'.
Yesterday it was widely reported through the online gossip channels that one of the reasons behind the shocking split was Angelina's contemptuous feelings towards Brad's relationship with his Allied co-star, Marion Cotillard.
The rumourmill swiftly turned this into accusations of an affair between the French actress and Brad, which has had an understandably upsetting affect on all those caught up in the salacious chitter chatter. So much so that the 40-year-old mother and wife, who normally keeps an incredibly private life out of the media spotlight, took to her Instagram to respond to the rumours.
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'affectent 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
“And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery,” Marion wrote at one point, a clear message to the gossip mongerers. “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”
Marion has been with her partner, French director Guillaume Canet, for 9 years and they have a son Marcel together with another child on the way.
The whole situation is a very sad state of affairs and even more so when unneccessary hurt is inflicted on innocent bystanders.
