Marion Cotillard’s crazy 9/11 theories – and her new ‘Vogue’ cover
Well it looks as if the American public has forgiven French actress/siren Marion Cotillard for voicing her off the wall 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Or at least the fashion world has.
Cotillard graces the cover of the July 2010 issue of Vogue wearing a plum Dior sheathe, visible lacy bra and a perfectly coiffed dark chestnut bob. The actress, who gained widespread acclaim – and an Oscar – for playing Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, appears chic and channels old-world glamour in the spread. The article itself paints Cotillard in an extremely positive light – portraying her as a modern renaissance woman, a talented artist and fashion icon.
But just two years ago in 2008, she wasn’t the nation’s darling – rather just the opposite when she voiced some interesting thoughts on 9/11.
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 burned for 24 hours,” she said in an interview in France, the Huffington Post story said. “It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.”
The footage of Cotillard making these claims was discovered in France.
In the same interview, Cotillard also called the twin towers “money pits” and said that demolishing them was easier than modernizing them.
The beautiful and the damned, it seems – but when Vogue forgives, the rest of the world is sure to follow.
