You wouldn’t think a famous Hollywood director who married his 22-year-old stepdaughter would support Roman Polanski, but you’d be wrong. In Cannes last week, Woody Allen restated his support for Roman Polanski.
According to the AP, Allen insisted Polanski “was embarrassed by the whole thing,” “has suffered” and “has paid his dues.” He added that Polanski is “an artist and is a nice person” who “did something wrong and he paid for it.”
I agree with Allen. Polanski may have drugged and anally assaulted a 13-year-old girl, but he’s a nice guy. Plus, he was embarrassed about the whole thing. Cut him some slack. Not to mention the guy fled to France to rape another girl and live the life of luxury. Hasn’t he suffered enough? I mean, he had to rape a 16-year-old in France. A 16-year-old… in France! That’s a girl three years older than he’d prefer and in a stupid country whose biggest claim to fame is the Eiffel tower. That’s worse than the Holocaust. And now he’s living in a chateau waiting extradition? This is just barbaric.
