Actress: 9/11 Was Our Fault

"I think what's good about the movie is that it deals with 9/11 in such a subtle, open, 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,' because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way"
- Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal (a New York native) made these comments at the Tribeca Film Festival, which was ironically founded to help lower Manhattan recover from the 9/11 attacks which Maggie thinks we so deserved. Screw her and he new film, The Great New Wonderful.

Update: Maggie's agent is Courtney Kivowitz at BenderSpink. Phone is (323) 856-5500 and fax is (323) 856-5502.
