Marion Cotillard didn't take affair rumours 'personally'

MARION Cotillard insists she wasn't offended by rumours she had an affair with Brad Pitt.

The 41-year-old actress - who is expecting her second child with partner Guillaume Canet - was forced to speak out to address speculation about her closeness to her 'Allied' co-star when he split from wife Angelina Jolie in September, but she never took the gossip "personally" because she had "nothing to do" with the situation.

She said: "I never take anything personally when it doesn't concern me. So, I didn't take it personally because I had nothing to do with those rumours or situation."

And Marion - who also has five-year-old Marcel with her partner - insists the speculation didn't spoil her experience working on the World War II drama with Brad and director Robert Zemeckis.

Speaking on 'Today', she added: "No, I don't give energy to this. It was a wonderful, wonderful experience working with such a visionaire director and an amazing actor, and that's all that matters."

Marion previously announced her second pregnancy on Instagram in September, when she moved to deny the rumours she and Brad had been having an affair.

She wrote at the time: "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 spiralling 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 judgement, 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 (sic)."
