According to Hollywood, losing your wife in a brutal manner is a great excuse for being a predator. In March 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with five offenses including rape by use of a drugs and sodomy. Polanski and Samantha Geimer, who was 13 at the time, were at Jack Nicholson's home. Jack was in Colorado at the time. Polanski wanted to photograph Geimer as part of his work for French Vogue. During the first session, Polanski requested that 13 year old Geimer take her top off and while she felt uncomfortable doing a second shoot, she agreed to do so. The second shoot was done at Nicholson's home. Polanski gave her champagne and a quaalude. Even though Geimer protested and tried to resist the scumbag, Polanski forced oral, vaginal, and anal sex on the 13 year old. Polanski served 42 days in prison and was set to be put on probation afterwards. Once Polanski had learned that the judge was going to change their mind, he fled to France. As I was typing this, the news hit ONTD that Polanski has been accused of sexually assaulting a 10 year old girl. Marianne Barnard tweeted on Oct 13 that Polanski had took photos of her nude in a fur coat on a beach in Malibu.
Barnard told her story to The Sun in which she talks about how she was initially supposed to pose in a swimsuit. After she took photos in bikini and a coat, Polanski asked her to remove her top and Barnard didnt think anything of it given her inexperience. After, he asked her to take her bikini bottoms off. Polanski then molested her. Barnard has started an online petition to get Polanski kicked out of the Academy. Five women have accused Polanski of sexual assault. A third victim came out in August and spoke about how Polanski sexually victimized her in 1973 when she was only 16. Polanski won an Oscar for Best Director in 2003.
Notable names who signed the petition: Woody Allen (LOL), Darren Aronofsky, Martin Scorsese, Tilda Swinton, Wes Anderson, Monica Belluci, David Lynch, Pedro Almodovar, Alfonso Cuaron (doing a show with Casey Affleck), Alexandre Desplat, David Heyman, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Alexander Payne, Jeremy Irons, etc. Emma Thompson initially signed it but was talked out of it by a 19 year old college student.
Natalie Portman's name has been rumored to be on the petition though I have yet to see anything concrete. She is listed on this petition from the man who created it.
She also starred in ad directed by Polanski with white Michelle Williams.
385 ASSHOLES WHO SIGNED THE PETITION
Harvey Weinstein also defended fellow rapist Roman Polanski. He called it a miscarriage of justice!
Meryl Streep gave him a standing ovation in 2003 at the Oscars
And Whoopi Goldberg said what Roman did wasn't "rape-rape".
I'm glad there are levels to what constitutes as rape Whoopi!
Notable people who worked with him since: Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Johnny Depp, Kim Cattrall, Tom Wilkinson, Jon Bernthal, and Adrien Brody.
Woody Allen is a pedophile who is still rewarded by Hollywood till this day. Stars flock to work with him on movies that are about some dude fucking a girl that is too young for him. Art imitates life. To make it short, Mia Farrow and Woody Allen were in a relationship together. Soon Yi was Mia Farrows adopted daughter from another relationship. Allen and Farrow split because she saw nude photos of Soon Yi that were taken by Allen. Soon Yi was 20 a the time and Allen had been raising her since she was 8. Soon Yi and Allen got married and have two adopted children together. In 2014, Dylan Farrow wrote a op-ed in which she accuse Allen of molesting her as a child. Farrow states that Allen took her to the attic, made her lay on her stomach, and sexually assaulted her. Ronan Farrow, who also exposed the hell out of Weinstein, backed up her claims. He called Allen behavior often strange and would climb into Dylan's bed at night and force her to suck his thumb. Mariel Hemingway als
o accused Allen of trying to seduce her and he asked her parents if she could come with him to Paris.
Woody Allen compared Farrow's essay to a bad review.
Scarlett Johansson may get annoyed that this is coming up in her google alerts so I made sure to include her name in it somehow.
Kate Winslet also thinks both Allen and Polanski are fantastic directors and doesn't know if it's true or false.
Ewan McGregor spoke out about Weinstein but stayed mum on Polanski and Allen when tweeters clapped back at him.
Miley Cyrus says that Allen is never fake and he is who he exactly is
Blake Lively thinks Woody Allen is empowering and encouraging.
Blake also didn't want to speak about Farrow's essay because she didnt want to speak about something she hasn't read and calls that dangerous.
In OP's opinion, dangerous would be enabling a pedophile.
Adrien Brody defends Cosby, Allen and Polanski. Also calls life "complicated". Okay bitch!
Kristen Stewart says she doesn't the people involved and doesn't want to "personalize" the situation cause that would be wrong. Jesse and Kristen discussed that if they were persecuted for the stuff said about them thats not "true", their lives would be "over".
Notable people who have worked with Allen and don't need the job: Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, Diego Luna, Liev Schreiber, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall, Elle Fanning, Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Steve Carell, Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Jude Law, Justin Timberlake, Timothee Chalamat, Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson, Matthew Goode, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Alec Baldwin, Michael Sheen, Adrien Brody, Rachel McAdams, Miley Cyrus, Marion Cotillard, Owen Wilson, Joaquin Phoenix, Jim Belushi, and many more.
Victor Salva was convicted of sexual misconduct in 1988 after molesting then 12 year old actor, Nathan Forrest Winters, that starred in one of his films. Salva asked Winters to stay behind for rehearsals and would force him to give and receive oral sex. While doing this, Salva would also tape the encounters. The actor told his parents what was going on and Salva had his home raided where additional child pornography was found. 15 months into his sentence, Salva was released on parole and was hired by Disney. Salva went on to direct "Powder" for Disney and is also behind the "Jeepers Creepers" films. Salva also included a background story of the character being molested by her stepfather in Jeepers Creepers 3.
Alfred Hitchcock was the director behind films such as Psycho, Vertigo, and Rear Window. Hitchcock was also a sexual predator like the other men in Hollywood. Tippi Hedren spoke out against Hitchcock's behavior and claims that he would attack her with real and live animals. Hitchcock would not allow her to take off until a doctor would intervene. He would also forbade her male costars from interacting with her or even touching her. Any time Tippi would speak to another man, Hitchcock would turn cold and icy. The situation went further in which Hitchcock told Tippi that he had an erection during a scene he was filming. He would force his body on top of hers and would force her to touch him. Hitchcock also tried to kiss her in a limo. The actress went on to make a second film with Hitchcock and the behavior didn't change. He had a secret door between his office and her dressing room. Hitchcock would put his hands on her and become aggressive with her the more she refused. The director was also infatuated with his leading ladies who were almost all blonde.
