Warning: this post may contain stereotypes. In the 1980s movie, Betty Blue, the character played by Beatrice Dalle has it all. She's gorgeous, carefree and adorable—until she goes mad. So French. And that's pretty much the trajectory of Marion Cotillard's global fame. A week ago, the star of La Vie En Rose burst onto American TV screens with the most breathlessly charming speech of the Oscars, accepting her Best Actress award. ("Thank you life, thank you love. It is true there is some angels in this city.") So cute! Or she was, until Cotillard shared her conspiracy theories about the attack on the Twin Towers.
"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...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."
