Marion Cotillard’s lawyer said she is in shock over the shit storm her year-old comments created. He said her comments about 9/11 being an inside job were taken out of context and misunderstood.
A French Dlisted reader wrote me and said Marion made the comments about a year ago on a French TV show. She was talking about how certain documentaries feed her paranoia about conspiracy theories. I think she was talking about “Loose Change.” The reader said her recently republished quotes have been twisted around.
The french media recently republished her quote after her Oscar win, “I think we’re lied to about a lot of things. 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.”
Her lawyer said, “This reportage has been taken out of context and one can only condemn such practices. Marion deplores that. She is currently filming in Chicago and has a lot of work. She is in an ocean of happiness and voila, this row blows up. It’s rather strange. It’s an old report, not at all current. Why bring it out now ? I talked three times to Marion overnight. This is worrying her. She is still in shock and does not really know how to react. She doesn’t have to apologise for a badly presented and badly interpreted reportage.”
“She hopes that the Americans will have enough distance to understand, but her career is not just American. She can make films everywhere.”
