    Angry Actress blames US for 9/11

    My husband says I should let this go, that this woman is just seeking attention, but I still think people need to be aware of what she said. It's in the NY Daily News today. If you do a search, she has several fan mail sites in case anyone wants to e-mail her.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal

    Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, star of a new flick about the aftermath of 9/11, believes the United States "is responsible in some way" for the devastating terror attacks.
    Gyllenhaal, 27, made the comments at the Tribeca Film Festival, where her new movie "The Great New Wonderful" - which has a plot centered on the destruction of the World Trade Center - premiered Friday.

    "I think what's good about the movie is that it deals with 9/11 in such a subtle, open way that I think it allows it to be more complicated than just, 'Oh, look at these poor New Yorkers and how hard it was for them,'" Gyllenhaal told the NY1 cable channel.

    "Because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way and so I think the delicacy with which it's dealt allows that to sort of creep in," she added.

    A lower East Side native, Gyllenhaal's new film focuses on a handful of New Yorkers coping with their pain about a year after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror strike.

    The 27-year-old vaulted to stardom after appearing in "Secretary" as a mousy assistant.

    The film festival where Gyllenhaal spoke was launched by actor Robert De Niro in 2002 as a way to help scarred lower Manhattan rebound.

    I've seen 'Secretary'.

    You could drill a hole in your head. Pour in battery acid. Shake it all around. And it would be better for you than watching this movie.

    It's bad.

    And her other screen credits are equally forgettable.

    I dont want to start a war here, and in no way do I condone any terrorist activities, but lets be honest. We (U.S.) are not as "innocent" as we would all like to think.

    True Dave. It is the fault of the citizenry, not just the government.

    I shall exercise my free speech and save a few hours for something more important.

    As for the actor and actress Gyllenhaal: never heard of them so they can't be that important. Then again, I haven't been to the movies in 3 or more years since most of them are not worth my time or my money.

    So a no name acteress in a no name film that is obviously biased against the US says something over the top and you all are both surprised and allow yourself to get worked up about it?

    Anyone want to bet she said this only to cause some controversy, in hopes that now someone would know who she is? I already forgot her name.

    Thumbs down Go fly a Kite Maggie, we hardly care about ye....

    Go figure, in her two most prominent roles she played a sexual deviant and a mousy woman who needed to be shown the way of life and independence by Julia Roberts....and her brother is a second-rate actor who actually made "The Day after Tomorrow" worse than it already was with Dennis Quaid as the lead....
