The big rumor is obviously that Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard got a little too close while filming their latest film “Allied”—so close, in fact, that Marion is rumored to be carrying Brad Pitt’s baby. Marion quickly put those dirty rumors to rest by stating she’s happily married to her husband of nine years Guillaume Canet. I feel like Brad attempted to do the same thing by appearing for the film’s premiere last night at The Regency Village Theatre in Westwood. Or who knows, maybe it was Brad’s therapist’s idea that he quickly return to the normal flow of his career or else life will be extremely rough following his divorce with Angelina Jolie. It’s anyone’s guess as to what exactly led to the divorce, but I just hope it wasn’t some sort of singular event that caused Angelina to hit the eject button on marriage. When you have that many kids, I think it works to their advantage to have the parents work through issues, regardless of size.
Apologies for diving so deep into the Brangelina gossip. Now let’s turn our attention to his latest film, “Allied”:
In 1942 North Africa, Canadian intelligence officer Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) meets French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard) on a secret mission behind enemy lines. The couple reunites in London and get married, eventually having a child together. Their relationship is strong and normal but becomes threatened by the brink of war, as Vatan is presented with the possibility that Beausejour is a sleeper spy working for the Germans. Vatan is then placed under considerable pressure to kill Beausejour himself or to be executed for failing to obey orders. Convinced of her innocence, he sets out on a very dangerous mission to clear her name.
