Speculation about substance abuse and parenting problems swirled, but one widely reported rumor claimed the real the reason behind the split was an affair between Pitt and Cotillard, his co-star in the upcoming World War II spy film "Allied."

In a post to Instagram, the actress wrote, "I am 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 explained that not only is she still with her partner of the last nine years, French film star Guillaume Canet, but that they also have a baby on the way.

"Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting," she wrote. "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."
