Just One More Reason To Hate The French

Academy Award winner, French actress, Marion Cotillard is quickly pushing her luck and her chances at ending up in Oscar winner oblivion. The 32-year-old star of "Edith Piaf" gave an interview the other day, in which she questioned the existence of the 9/11 attacks on New York City.

Cotillard referred to the 2001 attack as an example of the U.S. lying to gain political leverage, along with the moon landing. Cotillard stated, "We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes. Are they burned? They [sic] was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burnt for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [in New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed." She also hinted at the fact that she believes Americans destroyed the Twin Towers themselves because they wanted it rebuilt and blowing it up was cheaper than renovation.

After realizing the stupidity of her comments, her publicist and “spin doctors” released this concocted statement to TMZ: "On February 16, 2007, I appeared on a late night French television program,'Paris Dernière.' In the last 48 hours, my statements on that program have been taken completely out of context and been crafted into a story that has no merit. The conversation on the talk show included a dialogue aboutconspiracy theories. At no point did I intend to contest the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, one of the most tragic days in all of history. Nonetheless, I sincerely regret if my comments offended or hurt anyone."

This chick is right up there on the same list as Katherine Heigl as dumb asses who need to keep theredamn mouths shut!
