Oscar winner says 9-11 attacks made up.

Ever heard of Marion Cotillard?  Maye you have, and maybe you haven’t.  She recently won an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in the film La Vie En Rose.  Didn’t see the flick?  Neither did we, but it’s a typical case of critics heaping praise on something the rest of us ignore.  You will be seeing Ms Cotillard in the future though, she’s slated to star opposite Johnny Depp in the upcoming big budget movie Public Enemy.

Chances are Public Enemy will be a pretty good gangster flick, so when you’re watching the female lead on the screen, try to put it out of your mind that she believes the World Trade Center attacks were a hoax.  The real reason the Twin Towers went down, according to her, was that the buildings needed a remodel.  Yep, you read that right, she claims the buildings were outdated and needed an upgrade.  Here’s a quote…
“It was a money-sucker because they were finished, it seems to me, 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.”

Her conclusion is that 9-11 is just another example of the US concocting horror stories for political ends.  How politics and building remodels go hand in hand, we’re not really sure, but that’s her idea.  She also believes no one ever landed on the moon.  No joke, honest, that’s what she said.  Although she wasn’t alive at the time, she has seen the documentaries, and views them as more Hollywood magic.

Now before you start shouting things like “Moron!”, “Idiot!”, and “Whacko!”, Cotillard may not be any of those things.  She is, however, an actress, and actors live in make-believe worlds.  She was also, by coincidence, born and raised in France, and that explains a lot.
