Ahh…French women. Actresses. Two great tastes that taste great together. A bi-fecta of self congratulatory ignorance. Add an Oscar to that and you get the perfect storm of ego-centric retardation.
Such is the case with Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, who joins the truther party, keeping company with respected fellow actors Charlie Sheen and Rosie.
Normally I wouldn’t care at all, because I’ve never heard of this broad. I didn’t watch the Oscars or see her film because I’m straight, but she said some funny stuff.
Referring to the two passenger jets being flown into the Twin Towers, Cotillard said:
“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.
I can just hear the way she’s struggling with English to make her stupid point. It’s almost cute. Like when a beauty pageant contestant tries to say something smart. I just want to pat her on the head. She does put a new and exciting twist on the conspiracy though:
She added that the towers, planned in the early Sixties, were an outdated “money-sucker” that would have cost more to modernise than to rebuild altogether, which is why they were destroyed.
She said: “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.”
A-ha, it was too expensive to update the buildings that were built waaay back in the 70′s. Well hey, in her defense, “Re-cabling” is a bitch. Everybody knows that. She’s also a Moonie:
She said: “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.”
She ain’t nobody’s fool. Here’s the interesting part:
But Cotillard, who lives with actor and director Guillaume Canet, frequently tells interviewers she has no interest in money or prestige.
Denying that she had any kind of “Anglo-Saxon ambition”, she said she prefers to “choose roles which suit me”.
Despite her low-key image, Cotillard is an environmental activist who once worked as a spokesman for Greenpeace.
“Anglo Saxon Ambition?” WTF? Is this some new euro-dis I haven’t heard about? Is that some kind of “western imperialism” dealie?
Well, there ya have it. At least she’s hot. Or good thing she’s hot.
