Brad Pitt did NOT have to rescue Marion Cotillard from drowning while filming a scene for the upcoming WWII movie, Allied, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it “didn’t happen.”

According to the National Enquirer, Pitt and Cotillard were shooting a scene on a small raft off Spain’s Gran Canaria island when “a freak wave smashed the tiny craft.” A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, in very unnatural language, “Marion went under instantly, but gallant Brad – even though weighed down by a heavy suit – dove deep, and rescued his diva as the crew chanted, ‘Vive le Americain!'”

But unfortunately, you won’t get to see this supposed incident go down in the film’s DVD outtakes. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the production, who exclusively assures us that the tabloid’s story is completely made-up. The magazine’s account of a near-drowning and rescue simply “didn’t happen.”

This latest phony story involving Pitt and Cotillard follows a string of fabricated reports by the Enquirer’s various sister publications, including Star and OK!, which have often falsely alleged that the co-stars were hooking up. Gossip Cop has repeatedly called out these related outlets for claiming that Pitt and Jolie were headed for a split over his nonexistent tryst with Cotillard. At least the Enquirer has refrained from stirring up false cheating rumors, but there’s still no truth to this latest story.
