Marion Cotillard is an Idiot

[Gallery not found]

Marion Cotillard, who won this year’s Best Actress Oscar for something in French, was quoted in a 2007 interview saying that the Twin Towers were destroyed on 9/11 by the American government and that the American moon landing was fake. Stupid:

I think we’re lied to about a number of things,” she said, singling out September 11. Referring to the two passenger jets flown into the World Trade Centre, Miss Cotillard said: “We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes, are they burned? There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burned for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.” Miss Cotillard suggested that the towers, planned in the early 1960s, were an outdated “money sucker” which would have cost so much to modernise that it was easier to destroy them.”

She moves on to the American moon landing:

Did a man really walk on the moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered. And in any case I don’t believe all they tell me, that’s for sure.”

Jesus, is there some kind of pill they make you take in acting class that turns you into a complete moron? I don’t know about your tower in Spain sweetie, but the next time it catches on fire, douse it with 10,000 gallons of jet fuel then get back to me. I mean, that is if you have time. I imagine the world can’t wait to hear your thoughts on how Bigfoot killed JFK or how AIDS was invented to put an end to Welfare.

Apologetic update: Cotillard’s lawyer released the following statement: “Marion never intended to contest nor question the attacks of September 11, 2001, and regrets the way old remarks have been taken out of context.” Ah, I see. I’d love to hear her say why 9/11 was an inside job in its proper context.
