French actress Marion Cotillard on Wednesday ended her silence on her alleged involvement in the divorce of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Marion Cotillard denied any involvement in the sudden split between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, wishing that the two will “find peace,” and confirming her pregnancy with her long-time partner. There were unsubstantiated reports that Cotillard’s affair with Pitt was the reason of the split and the child was his too.
Cotillard, 40, posted a statement on her verified Instagram page a day after Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt. Pitt and Cotillard star together in the upcoming war drama “Allied.”
“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,” she said crushing the hopes of all reporters hoping to get a quote during the upcoming Allied press tour. “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.”
“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.”
Pitt and Cotillard began filming Allied in London back in March.
According to the website, a source said Jolie was insanely jealous with Pitt and Cotillard's on-screen chemistry.
"Angie couldn't handle Brad's sex scenes with Marion. Her jealousy was out of control. Brad tried for months to reassure her and calm her anxiety, but it simply didn't work. She said her intuition was telling her he was cheating," the source said.
"Angie has struggled with insecurity over Brad's fidelity for years, but she was never as jealous over a co-star as she was with Marion. She was always paranoid Brad would do to her the same thing he did to Jen," the source added.
