Marion Cotillard: Brad Pitt is 'a good man'

MARION Cotillard thinks Brad Pitt is "a good man".

The 41-year-old actress stars alongside the Hollywood hunk in 'Allied', and has branded the actor, 52, as "such a good person".

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', Marion said: "[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."

And the actress admits that working with the 'Fury' star was nerve-wracking, as she worried about how she would sound in the original reading.

She added: "I'm always super nervous, because I'm like, 'Oh, my God, if my reading is really bad, what are they going to think?'"

Marion's defence of Brad's personality comes after the star was recently cleared of child abuse allegations after he was accused of striking his 15-year-old son Maddox on board a private jet in late September while under the influence of alcohol.

Following weeks of extensive interviews with the child and evidence gathering, the Los Angeles County Department Of Children And Family Services decided to close the case earlier this week.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that it has been decided the 'Allied' star had not physically or emotionally harmed Maddox when they allegedly got into a war of words on their private jet.

Now that the investigation has been closed and he has been cleared of the allegations, Brad should have a better chance in his bitter custody war with estranged wife Angelina Jolie, 41.

The actress - who married the hunk two years ago - filed for divorce from Brad just days after the jet incident and asked for sole physical custody of their children Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

However, Brad is determined to get joint custody of all their children.
