Playing Marion Cotillard Talks Having to Shut Down Brad Pitt Affair Rumors: 'I Didn't Take It Personally'

Marion Cotillard is brushing off the rumors that she had an affair with her Allied co-star, Brad Pitt.

The 41-year-old actress appeared on the Today show on Thursday, when she addressed all the chatter that began when Pitt split with Angelina Jolie in September. Cotillard shut down the rumors later that month.

"I never take anything personally when it doesn't concern me," Cotillard tells Today co-anchor Matt Lauer. "So, I didn't take it personally because I had nothing to do with those rumors or situation."

Cotillard says that all the gossip didn't take away from her incredible experience working on the sweeping World War II drama.

"No, I don't give energy to this," she says. "It was a wonderful, wonderful experience working with such a visionaire director and an amazing actor, and that's all that matters."

Cotillard -- who's currently pregnant with her second child with her longtime love, director Guillaume Canet -- has been busy promoting Allied in the United States, while Pitt has been handling press overseas in China.

During the Oscar-winning actress' appearance on The Late Show on Wednesday, she dished on what it was like filming love scenes with 52-year-old Pitt.

"Let's imagine, you're with your wife, in bed or anywhere, here, and then all those people are watching. Yeah, cameras, like 50 people are watching. Do you still find it sexy?" she asked host Stephen Colbert.

When ET spoke with her earlier this month, Cotillard called Pitt a "good man."

"[Brad is] such a good man," she gushed about her A-list co-star. "Of course he's an amazing actor. He's such a good person that it's really not difficult to get along with him."
