The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists who hijacked passenger jets. That's the official version endorsed by the U.S. government and the international community, anyway. But a number of celebrities have resisted backing the official story.
The former "Cheers" star is part of a group that calls itself Actors and Artists for 9/11 Truth. This group has claimed that the official 9/11 Commission failed to investigate fully the attacks and that the government has offered untrue or misleading information.
"We're lied to about a number of things," the French star said of 9/11. (She later expressed regret for her remarks.)
Mr. Tiger Blood has called the government's account of the hijacked planes "really suspicious" and has claimed that Washington was behind the attacks.
The country crooner and noted weed lover is another member of the celebrity 9/11 group.
The versatile actor says he's done his own research on 9/11. "Buildings don't fall down like that," he concluded.
The Muse frontman long said that 9/11 was an "inside job," but he now says his view is more "nuanced."
"I do believe it's the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel," "The View" co-host said of the World Trade Center collapse. That was later rebutted by Popular Mechanics, among others.
The '60s rock icon was another celebrity who joined the 9/11 truther group.
The former "Lou Grant" star and voice of the old man in "Up" said the government needs to level with people about the terrorist attacks.
