Marion Cotillard has been dating French actor and director Guillaume Canet since they met on the set of "Love Me If You Dare," and the two currently live together in Paris. However, they've declined to discuss their relationship in the press.
Canet has been in a relationship with actress Marion Cotillard since October 2007. The two had known each other since 1997, and years later starred together in the 2003 film Love Me If You Dare. They later co-starred in the 2009 film The Last Flight. The couple has attracted considerable attention from the French media, but for a long time they did not discuss their relationship and did not appear together on a red carpet event until the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. The couple has a son together, Marcel, born on 19 May 2011. Despite common misconception, the couple are not married. Though since 2010 Cotillard has been spotted wearing a diamond solitaire on her left hand – a present from Canet – they are not engaged either. In 2014, Cotillard denied being married to Canet, instead referring to him as "my boyfriend" in interviews. The couple welcomed their second child, a girl named Louise in 2017.
In July 2012, photographer Jean-Claude Elfassi accused Canet of violence during an altercation as Canet and Cotillard arrived home from the hospital maternity ward with their new baby in May 2011. According to the photographer, Canet left his house with an iron bar and threatened him before police stepped in. Elfassi’s son filmed the actor with his cell phone and while Canet made sure the footage was erased from the web, photos were published on French magazine Entrevue. Elfassi and his son attempted to sue the actor for “violence” and “theft” and their case was not only dismissed, but Elfassi faces charges for “false accusation” and could spend nine months in jail.
