Guillaume Canet Marion Cotillard’s Husband

Guillaume Canet

Guillaume Canet is the partner of Award winning French actress, Marion Cotillard. We know his 40-year-old wife from her work in films such as Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Macbeth.

In present time Cotillard is making headlines and is not for her acting work. Canet’s woman is said to have possibly had an affair with fellow actor Brad Pitt. They had been working together on the movie Allied.

Some reports point out the discovery of the alleged affair is what drove Angelina Jolie to file for divorce from Brad; after only two years of marriage.

If there’s any true to the rumors, this would be the second time Brad Pitt has disappointed us fans. First he broke our hearts when he ended his 5-year marriage to America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston in 2005.

At the time Pitt left Aniston to be with Angelina –of whom he fell head over hills while filming, Mr. & Ms. Smith.

On the other hand, Pitt and Jolie have only been married for two years, but together for a total of 12. Jolie filed docs this week citing irreconcilable differences and is asking for custody of the couple’s 6 children.

As they say, once a cheater always a cheater huh! Now, is Guillaume Canet who we really feel sorry for.
