Marion CotillardSo here I was, surfing the net in the wee hours of the morning, and what do I see? Another celebrity making an ass out of herself.

Now, a celebrity saying something stupid is nothing new. Hell, we get that all the time. And to have a Best Actress Oscar winner say something moronic is also par for the course. We all remember Sally Field’s infamous, “You like me! You really, really like me!”

But what Marion Cotillard said has simply left me saying… What the fuck?

A year ago, Cotillard was on French television talking about a number of things. With her biggest claim to American fame being the romantic interest in the colossal flop A Good Year, she wasn’t even on our radar then, so when she chimed in about 9/11, few took notice.

As the translation goes: “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. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.”

Cotillard didn’t just put her foot in her mouth. She put her whole leg in there. Her theory is that the towers were sucking the money out of the city, so they were taken down by the U.S. and blamed on terrorists because Americans wanted to save money.

What the double fuck?

Who let this girl out of her cage? But wait… there’s more… are you ready for the what-the-triple-fuck, folks?

Cotillard also suggested in the same interview that the moon landing was fake. Her quote: “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.”

Wow. To quote Cotillard from her orgasmic Oscar blather: “I’m speechless.”
