It is a pity, really.
Oscar winning actress Marion Cotillard has now been written up for some things she said a while back...Note to Marion: 6 billion pages on the internet are not to be considered factual information any more than 1 million tons of concrete and steel are to automatically be considered a building.
In an interview that originally aired on French TV a year ago, she opined, "I think we were lied to about a number of things," singling out September 11.
“On the Internet you see all these films about a 9/11 conspiracy theory. It’s fascinating, addictive even,” she said.
Referring to the World Trade Center, 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."So, you believe movies you see on the internet, but not documentaries you see elsewhere? Hmmmm.
The La Vie en Rose star suggested that the towers, planned in the early 1960s, were an outdated "money sucker" which would have cost so much to modernize that it was easier to destroy them.
“They were finished, I think, by 1973, and to re-cable all that, to bring up-to-date all the technology and everything, it was a lot more expensive, that work, than destroying them,” she said.
Turning to America’s space program, she added: "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."
What a pity. So cute, and soooooooo stupid.
