Marion Cotillard has shot down rumors of any romantic involvement with Brad Pitt after his divorce from Angelina Jolie was announced.

The Oscar-winning actress said in a statement posted on Instagram that she is "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."

Cotillard affirmed her relationship with actor Guillaume Canet, with whom she has a 5-year-old son.

She also used the opportunity to announce that they are expecting their second child.

Cotillard stars with Pitt in the upcoming World War II romantic thriller "Allied."

Several reports suggested a relationship between the "La Vie en Rose" star and Pitt was the reason Angelina Jolie filed for divorce.

Cotillard says she hopes the pair "will find peace in this very tumultuous moment."

THE FULL STATEMENT

"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," Cotillard said in a statement.

"I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiralling 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."
