Allied is a spy drama that also stars Marion Cotillard, and many people have compared the movie to Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which first brought Pitt and soon-to-be ex-wife Angelina Jolie together. As such, in the wake of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce, a lot of people speculated that Pitt and Cotillard had been hooking up on set.
It’s only natural for Pitt to want to step away from Allied for a moment as his divorce gets messier and messier, but it could be disastrous for the movie.
“This was supposed to be the start of a big campaign push for Brad to finally win an acting Oscar, but there’s too much controversy for him to risk any publicity,” a source told the Sun. “It also doesn’t help that there were rumors he had an affair with his co-star Marion Cotillard, which both deny.”
So what will Brad Pitt be missing out on? Talk shows and interviews, mostly.
“Loads of chat show studios are gutted as they had him booked to come on and dozens of journalists have had their interviews scrapped. They are also being briefed not to ask anybody else associated about the film about Brad’s personal life,” the source stated.
