2008 Best Actress Oscar winner Marion Cotillard has come under fire for comments made regarding the events of 9/11 (to quote our Dear Leader). In the interview, which was conducted a year ago on French television, Cotillard embraces the more wild of conspiracy theories, asserting that 9/11 was a ploy to destroy outdated buildings and that the 1969 moonwalk was faked.

“I saw plenty of documentaries on [the moon walk], and I really wondered. And in any case I don’t believe all they tell me, that’s for sure.”, Cotillard is quoted as saying in the Los Angeles Times.

Healthy skepticism is, well, healthy, but Cotillard’s has now got the wolves snapping at her heels thanks to prime linkage on the Drudge Report and other websites weighing in on the drama. But Cotillard shouldn’t feel too badly. She’s actually joining in a long line of performers who have been targeted by the more spit-speckled of the America-Über-Alles League for offhand, lame comments that run contrary to our cultural narratives. John Lennon saw his band’s records burned after offhand comments about the waning popularity of Jesus. Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks was commercially crucified for anti-Bush stage banter. Cotillard will probably be used as an example of why the French are huge dicks that should never be trusted to fight their own wars, but I would just like to go on record as saying that while Marion may be a loudmouth with some strange ideas but she sure looked nice dressed up like a fish at the Oscars.
