Marion Cotillard Boyfriend: Guillaume Canet Responds To Brad Pitt Rumors [VIDEO]
Marion Cotillard's boyfriend is following in her footsteps and commenting on the ongoing rumors regarding her possible affair with Brad Pitt.
On Friday, Guillaume Canet took to Instagram where he released a statement to his fans and followers.
“I don’t usually make it a habit to comment on rumors made about us... 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, and respect and admiration I have for Marion staying as strong and intelligent in the face of all these stupid and unfounded accusations,” he wrote, according to a report by Us Weekly.
“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,” he continued. “Even if there’s so much work for some, I want to be positive. And as Marion said so well, ‘I hope you get better and aspire to something in your life than constantly sending s**t!’”
One day prior, Cotillard posted her own statement on Instagram.
"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," she wrote.
"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," Cotillard explained. "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."
