London Invades Germany...For a Change

2/13/2009 4:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So you're a rich, famous director who had this little problem with an underage girl back in the 70's and you need to do a movie in two countries that will put you behind bars. What to do?



If you're Roman Polanski, you bring Boston and London to Germany. R.P. is directing "The Ghost" in Krautville. He can't return to the U.S. and England will extradite him. So Roman has built him some imitation cityscapes in the streets of Deutschland.

We call it Roman's Fake Empire. Brilliant.

It wasn't a little problem.. it was statutory rape of a 13 yr-old.

That's child molestoring.

He should allow himself to return to America. I think he paid for his sin by now. Even the victim has long forgiven him. She even helped him win a directing oscar, ("The Pianist") when it looked like it would go to the director of "Chicago".

Besides the support of his now matured victim, he would have much support from artists in America, and everywhere!

Wow    

Actually, Hollywood actors want him back in America. They gush over him all the time. Sleeping with a 13 year old? No problem! Another sign how painfully out of touch they are.

If Woody Allen lives here, Polanski should also be allowed. He has served his exile long enough. Worse than him walk the streets of the USA every day.

Everytime this guy's name comes up I get sick. He's a fugitive. Plain and simple. Do you think Johnny Depp would allow a 35 y.o. to bang his daughter? Depp makes sick too for supporting Roman.

Why give him publicity? He's a sick pervert whos gotten away with his crimes. Let's have a moratorium on rich celebrities who sexually harm children, from Polanski to Woody to PeeWee Herman to Gary Glitter. Theyre the worst of the worst.

How come nobody mentions that the "victim" of this crime's Mother knew about Roman and the crowd he hung out with and STILL pushed her daughter to do it? Did you know about that? And what about the myriad laws broken by the JUDGE of this case. THOSE ARE ON RECORD. The biggest crook in this case was the JUDGE!! The trial, by US law should have been dismissed but the truth about the judge didn't come out till recently.

And before you go on about Woody Allen, you should consider he's the best writer/director this artistically impoverished country has ever produced. And his partner was of legal age so he didn't break any laws. Him and Roman BOTH are probably 2 of the greatest living directors. And btw, in both cases the sex was consensual. Polanski's victim has even went as far as absolving him. He's an old married man now for many years. Why all the hate?

Well, if you hold a grudge against Roman you almost have to hold one against Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston too because it happened at Jack's house and Anjelica walked in on the party. It was a different world back then too. Personally, I think he's a disgusting perv but if all parties involved are over it, then so am I.

how THE HELL can you defend this pedofile, Prole Hater?????????? So what if the mother was a disgusting pig who pushed her daughter into it and so what if the judge was corrupt. If Roman had been even a slightly decent human being then the character flaws of the mother and the judge would not even be an issue. No matter how crazy someone's mother is, you DONT RAPE LITTLE GIRLS. No matter what their mother says or does YOU JUST DONT. You make me sick. You must be a NAMBLA member or something... Its called personal responsibility. Jesus Christ... what is wrong with you????????

This bag-o-crap should burn in hell along with Woody Allen. I never watch any of their movies and really hate that hollywood actors would go to any lenths to work for them. I even boycott some of their favorite actors movies. Like that old hag that was in Annie Hall (can't remember her name).
