Brad Pitt More 'Emotional' Working With Cotillard Than Jolie
At a special screening of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard's new movie "Allied" on Tuesday, the actress opened up about how similar their movie is compared to the 2005 film "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."
"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" is where Brad Pitt first worked with his now estranged ex Angelina Jolie, and both movies have the same plot of two spies falling in love.
Well, 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' was really a comedy. And this one is very entertaining, but at the same time, there is a very profound questioning about love, about trust -- and the movie is very moving. It's very emotional. But yes, there are common points between the stories, because it's two spies who meet on a mission.
While Cotillard suggests that this movie is far more emotional than the film he first shot with Jolie, she also insists that there were no romantic feelings between the two stars.
Rumors of Pitt cheating on his then-wife Jennifer Aniston with Jolie on "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" started to fly while the two filmed their movie, but Cotillard is happily expecting a second child with her longterm partner, director Guillaume Canet.
She does, however, admire Pitt's work as an actor. She said,
He did an amazing job. He was very committed. It was very touching to see him working like he did. He loves French language, and he did an amazing job.
Cotillard told ET,
[Brad is] 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.
Brad Pitt is currently in China promoting their movie while he deals with a difficult custody battle over his six children with Angelina Jolie.
The battle continues to get more and more heated. Jolie is seeking sole custody of the children, while Pitt, who was recently cleared of child abuse allegations, wants joint custody.
