September 11, 2001 remains a tragic day in American history. Thousands of lives were lost, and the global repercussions of what happened at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon are still felt today. But while everyone agrees on the horror of the event, some famous actors, musicians, and athletes believe that the whole truth about September 11 has yet to come out. Some of these celebrity 9/11 truthers question the way the buildings came down and others are suspicious of who profited from the incidents.

Who appears on this list of famous people who are 9/11 truthers? Back in 2006, Charlie Sheen expressed his doubt about the public story of the tragedy. "We're not the conspiracy theorists on this issue," he said. "It seems to me like 19 amateurs...taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 percent of the targets – that feels like a conspiracy theory." Sheen's father, Martin Sheen, is also a 9/11 truther. Other celebrities who are 9/11 truthers include Mark Ruffalo, Willie Nelson, and Roseanne Barr.

Marion Cotillard questioned the validity of the reports that the World Trade Towers crumbled as a result of the impact from the planes. She said, "We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes, are they burned? There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burned for 24 hours.  It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed."

"I'm baffled by the way all three buildings came down," said actor Mark Ruffalo. "My first reaction was that buildings don't fall down like that. I've done quite a bit of my own research ...The fact that the 9/11 investigation went from the moment the planes hit to the moment the buildings fell, and nothing before or after, I think, makes that investigation completely illegitimate. If you're going to do a crime investigation, you have to find motive. We didn't follow that. It was quickly pushed away, obviously. None of us know what happened but I'm totally and completely behind reopening that investigation. Where is the money? Follow the money, guys!"
