Marion Cotillard‘s longtime partner Guillaume Canet is opening up about the rumors that she had an affair with Brad Pitt.
“I don’t usually make it a habit to comment on rumors made about us,” the 42-year-old filmmaker wrote on his Instagram. His French caption was translated by Time.
“I also don’t usually talk about my private life which until now I’ve always protected attentively … But the fury of the tabloids, the venal stupidity of some people calling themselves journalists, the haters who feel braver behind a keyboard, drive me to speak of the pride, love, respect and admiration I have for Marion staying as strong and intelligent in the face all these stupid and unfounded accusations,” Guillaume added.
“I think we’re all living with much more important things at this moment and now it’s time to move on and raise the bar a bit. Even if there’s so much work for some, I want to be positive,” he continued. “And as Marion said so well I hope you get better and aspire to something in your life than constantly sending s—!”
Marion and Guillaume have been together since 2007. They are the parents to a five-year-old son Marcel and she just confirmed that they have another child on the way.
