September 11 Terrorist Attacks

September 11 Terrorist Attacks, A joke about the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America was cut from Jean Dujardin’s new film so that he could win an Oscar, it emerged today.
The 39-year-old French star of the silent comedy The Artist scooped the Best Actor statue at the Academy Awards in Hollywood on Sunday.
But what many of the Americans voting for him did not know was that he produced and acted in a potentially devastating sketch in Les Infideles (The Players), which he is currently promoting in France.
A source close to the makers of Les Infideles confirmed that Dujardin played a cheating French businessman in one of the scenes cut out of the film, which went on show in Paris this week.
In the removed extract, the Frenchman had travelled to New York to conduct an affair, while telling his wife that he was working hard in an office in Manhattan.
As he is about to seduce his lover in a hotel room, the businessman receives a phone call from his wife and tells her: ‘Yes, yes, my darling, everything is fine!’
Meanwhile, the September 11 terrorist attacks of 2001 can be seen starting outside the window behind him, as a passenger plane flies in to the World Trade Centre. Original news footage was used in the sketch.
The source said: ‘Yes, the scene was considered too much for America. It would have been provocative, especially in the run up to the Oscars and other awards.’
Neither Dujardin, nor the official publicists of his film, were immediately available for comment.
Les Infideles has already been attacked in France for being shockingly sexist.
In a publicity photo for the film, Dujardin grips a pair of nak*d women’s legs open, under the caption: ‘I’m going into another meeting’.
