Marion Cotillard announces she's pregnant, shuts down Brad Pitt rumors


In what she called her "first and only reaction to the whirlwind news" of the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie divorce, actress Marion Cotillard announced she is pregnant and responded to tabloid rumors of an affair with Pitt.

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
