After learning of Angelina Jolie’s divorce plans, we were hit with a tide of speculation suggesting that her split from Brad Pitt was down to alleged infidelity with his Allied co-star, Marion Cotillard.

 

The scandal intensified yesterday when reports emerged that the 40-year-old French actress was pregnant, and the allegations moved her to finally speak out in the past few hours.

 

In a candid post on her Instagram account, Marion began: “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 spiralling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.”

 

 

Referring to her former co-star and partner of nine years, Guillaume Canet, Cotillard wrote: “Many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our young son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.”

 

Cotillard, who is already mother to five-year-old son Marcel with Canet, went on to thank those who acknowledged her ‘devastation’ over the rumours, and wished a ‘swift recovery’ to ‘the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment’.

 

 

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
