Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Divorce: Marion Cotillard And Billy Bob Thornton Weigh In As Kids Remain Upset
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are nearly two months into their messy divorce and as their proceedings continue, a couple of other celebrities are speaking out.
Days ago, the rumored mistress of Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, spoke out about her Allied co-star, whom she was linked to for months during filming on the World War II drama.
“[Brad Pitt’s] such a good man. Of course, he’s an amazing actor. He’s such a good person that it’s really not difficult to get along with him,” Cotillard told ET Online, via the International Business Times on November 14.
Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard were first linked to one another romantically earlier this year as they filmed Allied in London. Then, immediately after Jolie’s September 19 divorce filing was confirmed, a Page Six report suggested a private eye had confirmed the affair. The report also suggested that Brad Pitt was acting like a single guy on a mission throughout production.

“Sometimes, you never know. Sometimes, you have nothing in common, no chemistry, and it still works on screen. You have many different situations, but we had this chance to have this period of time to get along together, so it helps,” Cotillard continued of her experience on set.
Although Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard chose to ignore the rumors of their alleged romance on set during production, Cotillard ultimately spoke out after Brad Pitt’s divorce was announced. After being blamed for the split, Cotillard took to her Instagram account where she denied any involvement in Brad Pitt’s divorce and revealed that she already had a man in her life. In fact, she and her partner, Guillaume Canet, have been dating for several years and share one child, 5-year-old Marcel Canet. They also have a baby on the way.
Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton, also recently spoke out, revealing that his former wife was doing “OK” as her split from Brad Pitt continues to play out.
“She’s seems, you know, OK to me when I talk to [her]. I don’t talk to her that often though. You know? We’re still very good friends,” Thornton explained to Entertainment Tonight on November 12, “but she’s got her world. I’ve got mine.”
“Once in a blue moon we come together. Every now and then we talk, you know? Whatever. But when people are going through their trials and tribulations I try to leave them alone unless they want to talk to me,” he continued. “In other words, I figure it’s none of my business. Unless someone makes it my business it’s none of my business.”

While Jolie may be doing “OK,” a recent report claimed her kids with Brad Pitt were struggling with the split. Last week, a source offered an update on the children and revealed that the oldest kids, Maddox, 15, and Pax, 12, had grown so upset with their famous parents that they had actually requested to live with a relative.
“Maddox and Pax are now so upset with [Brad Pitt] and Angie that they do not want to live with either of them. The two boys are so disturbed with how their parents are behaving and everything they are being put through, they are beginning to ask if they can live with Uncle James or any other relative. They just want to be normal like their friends,” a source explained to Hollywood Life.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are also parents to Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
