Who Is Her Husband or Partner: Guillaume Canet? Here is All You Must Know
First of all Marion Cotillard isn’t married but she has a long-standing relationship with the French actor and director Guillaume Canet. The couple met in October 2007, and since then rumors have been circulating that the two of them got married in a secret wedding. However, a reliable source has revealed that the couple has not yet entered into the marriage bond.
Married or not, one thing is certain, the duo is head over heels in love with each other, and the length of their seemingly unwavering relationship lends credibility to this fact.
Guillaume Canet was born on 10 April 1973 in Boulogne-Billancourt. He began acting at the age of eighteen after a fall from a horse ended his dreams of riding. He enrolled at the Cours Florent acting school and immediately proved that he was a natural talent in acting.
He began his career with appearances in several commercials and television shows before he got his debut role in the short film Fils Unique. Since his debut, not only has his career flourished, but he has also made a name for himself as one of France’s leading actors.
Thanks to his impressive curriculum vitae he is not lacking in awards and nominations. In 1999 Guillaume won the Prix d’interprétation (prize for the best actor) at the Saint-Jean-de-Luz Festival for his role in Barracuda. He was also nominated for a César Prize for his role in En Plein Cœur, a critically acclaimed comedy.
Like Marion, he has gained international recognition for his work. He appeared especially in Yann Samuel’s Love Me If You Dare and Danny Boyle’s The Beach.

Fortunately, things turned out the way they did, because Guillaume is happy with Marion and Diane is happy in her relationship with Norman Reedus.
On 19 May 2011, Guillaume and Marion will welcome their first child, a son named Marcel, into the world. A few years later, the couple announced the birth of their daughter, Louise, on 16 March 2017.
Although they are not married, they were voted France’s third most popular couple in 2012 in a survey by Gala magazine of Harris Interactive. The couple seems happy and unconcerned about their relationship status, giving each other complete trust and devotion.
