Roman Polanski, 1979: Press Understands My Plight Because (and I Do Quote) "Everyone Wants to F--- Young Girls!"
Child Rape Apologist Wes Anderson Has a Kid's Movie Coming Out

Via Andy Levy, this charming interview from 1979, when I was still younger than the girl he drugged, raped, and sodomized.

Here’s a section of the first quote it contains from Polanski.

“If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls!”


Later in the interview, Polanski says he likes Paris, to which he’d fled, because it’s “very grown-up”.

Paris understands that sometimes you just have to diddle a toddler.

By the way, did I mention she was 13? Yeah. Thirteen. So even if she "looked older," she looked 15 and most and therefore still looked 3 years under the age of consent.

Incidentally, as he had gotten permission from the mother to photograph her (supposedly for Vogue, but I think we now know better what he had planned for those pics) he knew exactly how old she was. He had to get legal disclaimers for it. He had like three legal documents in front of him, each in triplicate, stating she was 13.

Oh, and also incidentally -- his legal team floated the defense that the girl wasn't a virgin before he raped her, so he was willing to go full-on Whore Deserved Exactly What She Got on the little girl he raped.

His defenders don't talk much about his artistry in that respect.

And he drugged her, and even as she resisted, he raped her. And then, figuring, I guess, "Ah, what the hell, gone this far, might as well run the table," he sodomized her.


But he made The Pianist. So -- no biggie.

More: Among the signatories of the petition demanding the freeing of a rapist is Wes Anderson, director of Rushmore.

Why is that significant?

He just completed a children's film called The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

So, when you're deciding whether or not to bring your kids to see that movie, bear in mind, Wes Anderson wouldn't mind if one of his director-buddies raped your kids. Maybe that will take some of the magic out of the film.

George Clooney plays Mr. Fox, by the way, so... yeah, more of a reason to stay clear. Wes Anderson himself plays "Mr. Weasel." Fitting.

Maybe it's better not to give Wes Anderson this "in" with your kids. Just saying. He seems very comfortable with child-rape and all.

Thanks to Z as in Jersey for that tip.
