French actress regrets speaking out about the 9/11 terror attacks in New York, admitting it was "stupid" of her to wade into the debate. The Oscar-winner hit headlines in 2007 when she remarked during a late-night TV interview that she had doubts over the official version of the 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

She insists her comments were twisted to wrongly make it appear she believed in a 9/11 conspiracy theory - but admits it was "not very smart" of her to speak out on the issue. Cotillard tells The New Review magazine, "You know, I know how the media work. And I have to be honest: it was really stupid for me to talk about something that serious in a TV show at one in the morning."

"But we were talking about something totally different and I gave an example of what I had seen. And it was not very smart. But still: what was written out of it was very different from what I said...I didn't say that (the attacks were fake). The first reason is that I know people who have lost members of families or friends that were in those planes. So how could I believe in the conspiracy theory? It's nonsense."
