Guillaume Canet, a French actor and director who has been married to Marion for nine years, penned a heartfelt, albeit angry, post in French on his Instagram account this weekend, following ongoing speculation that his wife had an affair with Pitt whilst filming their upcoming Second World War drama Allied.

Marion, 40, found herself in the headlines this week after news broke that Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from Brad, 52, allegedly after discovering his extra-marital fling with Marion, which has been vehemently denied.

And while the La Vie En Rose actress had already addressed the claims on her own Instagram age, whilst also confirming she is pregnant with her and Guillaume’s second child, he has now done so himself, pleading for the ‘shit’ to.stop.


His statement translated:

‘I do not usually comment on rumours made up about us … I do not usually talk about my private life, which until now I have always carefully protected … But the fury of the tabloids, the venal stupidity of some people calling themselves journalists, the hatred of some users feeling stronger behind a keyboard, push me to speak of the pride, the love, respect and admiration I have for Marion, for staying so 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 is time to move on and raise the bar a bit.

‘Even if that is a lot of work for some people, I want to be positive. And as Marion said, I hope you become better and aspire to something else in your life other than constantly coming out with shit

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 !
