Marion Cotillard’s Partner Guillaume Canet Responds To Brad Pitt Affair Rumours

Days after Marion Cotillard took to Instagram to dismiss rumours of an affair with her “Allied” co-star Brad Pitt, the Oscar-winner’s partner is now responding to the romance allegations.

French actor Guillaume Canet posted his response to rumours that an affair between Cotillard and Pitt was a factor in the couple’s high-profile divorce. “I don’t usually make it a habit to comment on rumors made about us,” he posted on Instagram in a lengthy post, translated from his original French into English by Time on Friday.

“I also don’t usually talk about my private life which until now I’ve always protected attentively … But the fury of the tabloids, the venal stupidity of some people calling themselves journalists, the haters who feel braver behind a keyboard, drive me to speak of the pride, love, respect and admiration I have for Marion staying as strong and intelligent in the face all these stupid and unfounded accusations,” his translated statement reads.

Je n'ai pas non plus l'habitude de commenter les rumeurs faites à notre sujet… Je n'ai pas non plus l'habitude de parler de ma vie privée, que jusqu'à présent j'ai toujours protégé avec beaucoup d'attention… Mais l'acharnement de la presse people, la bêtise vénale de certaines personnes se faisant appeler journalistes, la haine de certains internautes se sentant plus forts derrière un clavier, me poussent quand même à dire la fierté, l'amour, le respect et l'admiration que j'ai pour Marion, de rester aussi forte et intelligente face à toutes ces accusations débiles et non fondées. Je pense que nous vivons tous des choses autrement plus importantes en ce moment et que maintenant il serait temps de passer à autre chose et d'élever un peu le niveau. Même si il y a beaucoup de travail pour certains, j'ai envie d'être positif. Et comme dit si bien Marion je vous souhaite d'aller mieux et d'aspirer à autre chose dans votre vie que d'envoyer constamment de la merde !

“I think we’re all living with much more important things at this moment and now it’s time to move on and raise the bar a bit. Even if there’s so much work for some, I want to be positive,” he adds. “And as Marion said so well I hope you get better and aspire to something in your life than constantly sending s***!”

Canet and Cotillard have been in a relationship since 2007.

Earlier this week, Cotillard refuted claims of an affair on Instagram, declaring her love for Canet and announcing that the couple is expecting a new baby.  “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,” she posted.

The couple have a five-year-old son, Marcel.
