As the world comes to terms with the shock news that Brangelina are no more, there’s another woman who has been dragged into their divorce – French actress Marion Cotillard.

Pictures of Brad, 52, and Marion, 40, looking cosy on the London set of their World War 2 film Allied surfaced earlier this year, and soon after, there were claims in US Star magazine that the actor had strayed from Ange while working away from home.

In May, a source told the mag: “There is totally something going on between them. They’ve had insane chemistry right from the start, and many crew members believe they’ve been acting on it in private.”

That same source claimed that Brad and Marion even had “affectionate nicknames” for each other during filming. In the film, the pair play undercover allies who become romantically involved as they plan a high-profile assassination.

As news of the Brangelina divorce spread, New York newspaper The Post claimed that Ange had grown suspicious of her husband’s behaviour while he was away filming, and had hired a private investigator to check it out.

The source said: “She felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw.”

The affair claims bring back memories of when Brad and Ange first got together – when Brad was very much still married to Jennifer Aniston (#TeamJen!).

As we all remember, Brad and Ange’s love story began on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2004, with Ange later admitting, “Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened. I think a few months in I realised, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work’.”

But has history repeated itself with Brad and his sexy French actress Marion?

A source close to the actress denies the Brad affair rumours, insisting she is still with her long-term partner, French actor and director Guillaume Canet, with whom she has four-year-old son Marcel.

Yet, Brad and Marion’s chemistry during filming hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Their Allied co-star Lizzy Caplan spoke recently about their scenes together, saying: “The first day the two of them had this scene where he carries her over a threshold and sets her down and kisses her. I looked at the monitor while it was happening and it was like light emanated from the two of them. I thought, ‘Oh, I see, this is some next-level stuff.”
