Pregnant Marion Cotillard denies involvement in Brangelina split

Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard has broken her silence to announce she is pregnant and deny a romantic entanglement with Brad Pitt.

The French star, 40, was dragged into Angelina Jolie and Pitt's divorce, with reports that she and Pitt had an affair while filming upcoming Second World War drama 'Allied'.

Cotillard has responded to the rumours on her Instagram page, where she has confirmed she is expecting her second child with French actor and director Guillaume Canet.

The couple already have a five-year-old son, Marcel.

The La Vie En Rose star said she had to "speak up" as rumours had been "spiralling and affecting people I love".

She wished Jolie, 41, and Pitt, 52, "peace in this very tumultuous moment".

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 spiraling 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 judgment, 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 Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement... un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.

She is set to be represented by powerhouse lawyer Laura Wasser, famous for her role in dissolving marriages for Hollywood's A-list stars.

The couple, who have six children, married in 2014 after 10 years together.

Cotillard and Pitt play undercover allies who develop a romantic relationship in new film 'Allied'.

A trailer for the movie, showing the pair kissing, was rushed out after the news broke.

The film's producer, Graham King, is previously reported to have said: "Brad and Marion immediately had the utmost respect for each other, so once they delved into their characters, their chemistry was electric."
