Marion Cotillard Politely and Succinctly Shut Down Those Terrible Brad Pitt Rumors in One Classy Swoop

mc

After the news of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s split, the tabloids were quick to jump into speculative mode, making all sorts of claims about the reasons behind Jolie’s divorce filing. The worst thing about gossip is, regardless of veracity, how quickly it spreads. Though we revere our celebrities, we tend to rip them down as quickly as we erect their shrines, often forgetting they are actual human beings with feelings and real personal lives. Marion Cotillard isn’t about to let us forget. Following the terrible headlines that alleged an affair between the actress and Pitt (with whom she recently filmed Allied), Cotillard wasted no time — or words — in addressing the truth.

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

    Good for her.

    I’m reading that in Marion’s voice and it’s even more soothing. She could release an audiobook of Mein Kampf and I would still pre-order the hell out of it.
