I understand this woman-child had a burgeoning career before her Oscar-winning turn in La Vie en Rose last year, and I enjoyed her quite immensely as the saucy Fanny Chenal in Peter Mayle’s A Good Year. What a pity she’s irretrievably stupid:
“I think we’re lied to about a number of things,” Cotillard said, singling out the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center as an example of the US making up horror stories for political ends.
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.”
How delightful…so pretty, an award winning actress, and a competent engineer, as well! How proud her parents must be.
She added that the towers, planned in the early Sixties, were an outdated “money-sucker” that would have cost more to modernise than to rebuild altogether, which is why they were destroyed.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.”
The mind, she boggles. And that’s not all…
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.”
Just stand over there in the corner and look pretty, dear. We’ll let you know when we need something. Or, see if you can trade in that marmoset brain for one from a higher order of ape.
