EEK, this is uncomfortable! Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard publicly reunited for the first time since those shocking affair allegations surfaced in September, and they looked pretty awkward posing beside one another on the ‘Allied’ red carpet. Yikes!
Brad Pitt, 52, and Marion Cotillard, 41, aren’t letting their persona lives get in the way of promoting their new movie, Allied. The pair even took pictures together on the red carpet for the film’s premiere in Los Angeles on Nov. 9, and even though they looked a bit uncomfortable, they seemed to be totally great sports about the whole thing!
It had to have been a bit of an awkward situation for the co-stars — back in September, it was rumored that Brad was cheating on Angelina Jolie, 41, with Marion, and reports surfaced that the alleged affair caused Brangelina’s shocking divorce. The rumor mill intensified even more, though, when news broke that Marion was pregnant with her second child!
Even though the actress doesn’t normally address speculation about her personal life, she had to set the record straight on this one. On Sept. 21, she took to Instagram to confirm the pregnancy, but completely denied the cheating rumors and professed her undying love for fiancee, Guillaume Canet.
“He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need,” she gushed in the post, adding that the ‘crafted conversation’ about her life was ‘distressing.’ She concluded the message by sending her well wishes to Brad and Angelina, who she called people she “deeply respects.”
Brad may have looked a bit awkward while posing with Marion at the movie premiere, but for the most part, he was all smiles, and even thanked fans for their support amid his divorce battle. It was a good night for him, too — he was cleared in his child abuse investigation by the Department of Child & Family Services. Yay!
