Oscar winner Marion Cotillard calls 9/11 'fabricated'
Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard has sparked controversy after claiming she believed that the US fabricated 9/11.
In an interview, the La Vie En Rose actress questioned the truth behind the attacks on the Twin Towers. She commented, 'I think we're lied to about a number of things.'
Singling out 9/11 she added, '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 burnt for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there, in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.'
Speaking of the World Trade Centre she continued, '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.'
The interview featured on a Paris television programme last year, but went largely unnoticed as Cotillard was not well-known outside of France. Now since her recent Oscar win, the interview has been re-published on French site Marianne2, causing controversy in America.
Cotillard's lawyer has quickly defended the actress, claiming she 'never intended to contest nor question the attacks'.
