Since news of the divorce between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie broke, there have been many guesses as to what exactly is the cause for the two deciding for separation. Of course, this may hinge not only on a single point but on a variety of factors. However, many still speculated that one of the major causes is the actor’s supposed romance with French actress Marion Cotillard. Both Pitt and Cotillard star in the new film by Robert Zemeckis, Allied.
Allied is set in 1942 in a time of war. Brad Pitt will be playing Max Vatan, an intelligence officer who has to operate behind German enemy lines during this time of great turmoil. In the course of trying to fulfill his duty, he meets resistance fighter Mariane Beausejour, the character Marion Cotillard portrays.
The two characters experience instant attraction to each other, but due to the nature of their work, plus the ongoing international conflict, it became hard for them to cultivate a romance. However, we were told in the plot snippets released for the film that the two managed to pursue their interest for each other when they both got back in London.
A new poster for the film was just released, which showed both of them holding hands, while on the background was a burning car. Both are holding guns, and Pitt sports a suit while Cotillard wore a jade dress.
As for the actress’ involvement in the divorce or whether a romance between her and the esteemed actor is ongoing in real life, Marion Cotillard spoke up some time ago on Instagram, saying that she has nothing to do with it. She also said that it will be the first and last time she will speak about the issue.
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
