Roman Polanski and his child rape victim, who’s now an adult, are telegraphing just how tight they are now by posing for a very cheery photo … 50+ years after he drugged and molested her.
The infamous director posed with Samantha Geimer in a pic that was shared over the weekend by his wife, Emmanuelle Seigner … who actually interviewed Geimer in a piece that ran in the French publication Le Point, where Geimer says she’s over the whole saga.
In the article, Geimer said Polanksi has “paid his debt to society.” She also says the encounter with Polanski in ’77 — when she was just 13 — was “never a big problem” for her, and she laments it dragging on as a scandal for this long.
This is something Geimer has repeated publicly for quite a while now — however, she did sue Polanski over the rape back in the ’90s, which was reportedly settled out of court.
In the years that followed, Geimer has said the rape doesn’t define her … nor does she think Polanski should continue to be dogged over it, let alone be wanted by the authorities here in the States. He’s attempted to get the fugitive warrant revoked, but it hasn’t worked out.
As you might know … Polanski pled guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor at the time, but fled the country before he could be sentenced, and has never returned. He has won Oscars since then, though.
Of course, amid the #MeToo movement … he was finally expelled from the Academy.
