Marion Cotillard’s Partner Guillaume Canet Rips Media For Brad Pitt Rumours

Earlier this week, Marion Cotillard issued a calm and measured response to the rumours of an affair with her Allied co-star Brad Pitt, wishing Brad and Angelina “peace in this tumultuous moment”, and reaffirming her commitment to partner Guillaume Canet
Canet and Cotillard have been together for a number of years – they have a son and are expecting a second child soon – and overnight, he took to Instagram, albeit in more fiery fashion, to blast rumours of an affair. 
Under a red and black ‘danger’ symbol’, the actor wrote:
“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 have always attentively protected. But the fury of the tabloids, the venal stupidity of some people calling themselves journalists, the internet trolls who feel braver behind a keyboard, drive me to speak of the pride, love, respect and admiration I have for Marion staying strong and intelligent in the face all these stupid and unfounded accusations.” 

“I think we’re all living with much more important things at the moment and now it’s time to move on and raise the bar a bit. Even if that’s a lot of work for some, I want to be positive. And as Marion said so well, I hope you get better and aspire to something more in your life than constantly sending shit!”
Yes, daddy. Or should I say ‘oui papa’? The full post in its original French is below, and it’s probably even more authoritative-sounding if you read it like that:

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 !
