German actress Renate Langer is now 61-years-old but she claims Roman Polanski raped her twice in 1972 when she was a 15-year-old student. Langer made a formal complaint with Swiss police last month. From the NY Times:
By her account, she was introduced to Mr. Polanski after she began working for a modeling agency in Munich in high school and said she had traveled to visit him in Gstaad, with the permission of her parents, because he had indicated an interest in casting her in a movie.
Mr. Polanski, she said, raped her in a bedroom of his home, and she described being unable to defend herself against him despite trying. She left the next day, full of shame and confusion, and said she chose not to tell her parents because it would devastate them.
A month later, Langer says Polanski apologized and offered her a role in a film he was making. She accepted and flew to Rome.
She flew to Rome alone and was given a small part in the movie. Mr. Polanski did not make any sexual advances as filming got underway, she said. But one night in Rome, when she was alone in a house that she had been sharing with others, she said he raped her again in a bedroom despite her efforts to defend herself by throwing a bottle of wine and a bottle of perfume at him.
This had an influence on all of my life, she said.
Langer says she never reported the crime at the time or even spoke of it contemporaneously (though she did tell a boyfriend sometime later). As to why she is coming forward now, she tells the NY Times she read the account of the third accuser who came forward this summer. Also, both her parents died fairly recently, her mother two years ago and her father this summer.
Langer is the fourth woman to accuse Polanski of rape. In August a woman known as Robin M. became the third accuser, claiming Polanski raped her when she was 16-years-old.
Monday, the Hollywood Reporter published an interview with Polanski in which he said of his past crimes, “As far as what I did: It’s over.”
Bit late to bring charges. But he jumped bail and the original accuser never changed her story, she just says it doesn’t change a whole lot at this point in time. I don’t think she ever became fond of him or absolved him of guilt for raping and sodomizing her.
Well, that’s another country Polanski just removed from his “to visit” list!
“both her parents died fairly recently, her mother two years ago and her father this summer.”
Not related to the story, but I wish my folks were still around when I was hitting 60. She was blessed in that way, at least,
What will Whoopi Goldberg say about this?
It wasn’t rape-rape, this time either?
The first (reported) incident, with Samantha Geimer, 13, was "rape-rape" by any definition. Not only did Polanski drug her with pills and alcohol, he sodomized her and she never reported any sexual satisfaction from the encounter.
I really disgusted with the euro press/elite for minimizing that. He abused his hollywood power to do that to a little girl.. I can’t even say it.
Elite pedophiles are above the law. Polanski is just a high profile case that the media was unable to bury. Look at Lolita island and how the courts, media, and goverment closed ranks to protect the elite perps over the brave victims that came forward.
Polanski was openly dating 15-year-old Nastassja Kinski about that time also. While I don’t believe in the absolute nature of the 18 age-of-consent standard, it is clear that Polanski showed a pattern of repeatedly targeting and exploiting young women for sex. He also drugged, raped, and sodomized them. He deserves what he has coming.
“As far as what I did: Its over.”
It’s far from over. Even when you’re dead and buried it will be far from over. There is a price to pay for the choices everyone of us makes. And you’re not going to get out of the torture that is coming your way.
Not by “any definition”. Read what Whoopi Goldberg had to say - she didn’t think raping a drugged 13-y/o girl who was still screaming “no” and resisting counted as, in her words, “rape-rape”.
Prediction here and now: Polanski will die a free man. He is too well-loved by the Left to ever be prosecuted anywhere.
This would not have happened if he had used a silencer on his movie career. Thanks SeekAndFind.
