For some reason people are shocked that Samantha Geimer is using a photo of herself at the age of 13 as the cover image of her autobiography centered heavily around her 1970′s rape by director Roman Polanski. Though she was 13 when she was raped and the photo was taken by Polanski himself a couple weeks before the assault while he was pretending to be an artistic photographer of pretty girls. So, it’s actually not shocking, it actually makes total and perfect sense. What is shocking is that Roman Polanski never went to jail for drugging and sodomizing a thirteen year old girl in Jack Nicholson’s hot tub. Just letting a child into Jack Nicholson’s hot tub ought to be a crime. Polanski fled to France when he found out his sweetheart probation deal for the rape might be taken off the table. So, there he’s lived all these years making movies, banging younger woman and maybe more girls, and being lauded as a saint. We spent a decade and billions of dollars finding and rubbing out Bin Laden. We know where Polanski is. And the French are not nearly as tough as the Taliban, just saying.
One liked to sodomize middle school girls, the other preferred to violate downtrodden hotel maids, but make no mistake about it, these two peas in a pod represent the very best in French rapers. Film director Roman Polanski and former IMF chief Dominique Strauus-Kahn brought out their much younger ladies for a stroll on the Cannes red carpet much to the delight of the adoring fans. In France, they take a very different view on the matter of of sexual assault. Because Frenchmen are such notoriously weak-kneed surrender monkeys, it’s just assumed they could never be a match for a defiant woman, or tipsy 13-year old girl I guess. It’s hard to argue with that logic. Still, I hope somebody pissed in their popcorn.
ROMAN POLANSKI - will not be extradited by the Swiss to the US. He of course was convicted in 1977 of drugging a 13-year-old model and fucking her in the ass, but he fled the country and has never served a day in jail. Well maybe I’ll just go over there and fuck some of their teen models in the ass. Two can play this little game, Switzerland. (huff post)
EVERYONE GOT MARRIED THIS WEEKEND - including Carrie Underwood to NHL star Mike Fisher, Martin Lawrence to Shamicka Gibbs, and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt to each other. By contrast, I found a big box, painted numbers on it and pretended it was a race car. Oh god I’m so lonely! (people, people, people)
MEL GIBSON - has said offensive stuff for a long time, and here’s a list of some of it going back as far as 1991 when he said: “They take it up the ass. (points to his anus) This is only for taking a shit.” To make matters worse he was answering a question about Mexicans when he said that. (gawker)
SOPHIE TURNER – spent the weekend in a bikini in Malibu, and I think I see a shark behind her in one of these pictures. She should take her bikini top off and signal for help. (pacific coast)
When he was at the peak of his fame in 1977, director Roman Polanski drugged and anally raped a 13-year-old girl while she begged him to stop. That was illegal in LA back then (misdemeanor now), so he scurried off to France to live with the rest of the perverts.
He’s still fighting extradition back to the US to face these charges and serve his time, and today’s news probably won’t make him run over here any faster.
Charlotte Lewis, who starred in the Polanski film Pirates, spoke at a news conference Friday saying “he (Roman Polanski) sexually abused me in the worst possible way when I was 16 years old.”
“In addition to the fact that both myself and his previous victim were underage, I believe that there are other similarities in the crime that he committed.”
She continued, “Mr. Polanski knew that I was only 16 years old when he met me and forced himself upon me in his apartment in Paris. He took advantage of me and I have lived with the effects of his behavior ever since it occurred. All I want is justice.”
Look, no one is saying guys shouldn’t have anal sex with hot teen girls, okay. I don’t think anyone has come here today to argue against that. The problem comes when they’re closer to 12 than 20. And if you plan to claim they wanted it, don’t drug them until they’re unconsciousness first. It sends mixed messages.
In 1977, Roman Polanski was 44 and a huge star in Hollywood since his Oscar nomination for directing ‘Chinatown’ 3 years earlier. He was also a photographer for magazines like Vogue. During a private photo shoot with a 13-year-old girl named Samantha Gailey, he gave her champagne, quaaludes and a sedative, then anally raped her while she begged him to stop.
That’s illegal, so he was arrested but fled to France where he’s lived free of punishment ever since. In September the Swiss police took him into custody with plans to extradite him to the US, but thanks to the President of France, now that’s never gonna happen.
The Tuesday morning headlines are brought to you by this guy. Either one really.
MADONNA – is cheap. She made 110 million dollars last year, yet only gave $459,000 to charity. This may sound thoughtless, but keep in mind: Madonna is a mean old bitch. (hollywood reporter)
ROMAN POLANSKI – has been denied bail once again. A Swiss court ruled he was a high flight risk and ordered him to remain in jail while he awaits possible extradition to the United States. Considering he’s facing extradition precisely because he fled the country while on bail last time, it takes some balls to ask for bail again. That’s the entire reason we’re here. What did he think the judge was gonna say? “I know you took off last time, but, I’ve just got a lucky feeling. I say we go for it!” (e online)
SHAKIRA – has secretly been taking “Introduction to Western Civilization: Ancient Civilizations from Prehistory to Circa A.D. 843″ at UCLA all summer. She would wear baggy clothes with a hat pulled low and keep to herself, and no one ever knew. She took the class simply because she wanted to, and did well until it wrapped up last Thursday. “I was really impressed with how intelligent she was,” said Professor Robert Cleve, as he tried to change the subject so his erection would go away.
