Almost as soon as news broke about the divorce of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, people started pointing fingers. And most were aimed at his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard.
But the French actress’s friends have rushed to her defence, saying she would be “absolutely devastated” by suggestions she has any role to play in the sensational split, or that she’s been unfaithful to her partner, fellow actor Guillaume Canet, 43.
A friend of the 40-year-old told The Daily Mail, “‘Marion and Guillaume are blissfully happy, and these kind of claims are not what Marion wants to be hearing.
“‘Claims that she’s cheating on Guillaume with Brad will leave her absolutely devastated. This doesn’t sound like her at all.”‘

Cotillard has a five-year-old son with Canet, with whom she has been in a relationship since 2007.
“She enjoys her family time and wants to enjoy more of it,” said the source. “All this fuss will be a huge shock to her.”
