Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard step out in London for Allied premiere

Marion Cotillard showed off just the hint of a baby bump as she and co-star Brad Pitt walked the red carpet in London for the premiere of their film Allied.

The French actress – who is expecting her second child with partner Guillaume Canet – looked elegant in a black dress as they braved the rain to attend the screening of the Second World War drama.

Hollywood heavyweight Brad looked smart in a dark suit as he arrived at the glittering event in London’s Leicester Square.

He took time on his way up the carpet to pose for pictures with excited fans who had flocked to get a glimpse of him.

The premiere comes weeks after Marion was forced to deny she had any involvement after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad.

The Oscar-winner was dragged into Angelina and Brad’s split, with rumours that she and Brad had an affair while shooting their movie.

She responded on her Instagram page, wishing Brad and Angelina “peace in this very tumultuous moment” and confirming that she was expecting a baby with Guillaume, who she described as “my love, my best friend, the only one that I need”.
