French actress denies role in ‘Brangelina’ split


WHEN news broke out that Hollywood golden couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are headed for divorce, French actress Marion Cotillard’s name immediately surfaced as a possible “third party.”

Pitt’s rumored involvement with his leading lady — precisely what many believe happened when he was on the set with Jolie for Mr. & Mrs. Smith while married to Jennifer Aniston — added fuel to the fire.

Pitt and Cotillard co-star in the upcoming movie “Allied,” whose shoot in Europe was rumored to have forged a close relationship between the two.

Cotillard, however, cleared her name within a day the Jolie-Pitt split hit global headlines, posting the following on her Instagram account, @marioncotillard:

“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,” she added.

“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.”

The man in Cotillard’s life is French actor and director Guillaume Canet.

Cotillard’s post, which came with a French translation, has garnered almost 49,000 likes and 3,900 comments as of press time.
