Roman Polanski's Sexual Abuse Victim Addresses Woody Allen Scandal & Some Of What She Says Is Unexpected!

To say that Samantha Geimer can empathize with Dylan Farrow is an understatement.

Samantha was 13 years old when director Roman Polanski had "unlawful sexual intercourse" with her. Like Woody Allen, who is Dylan's alleged sexual molester, Roman continued to make critically acclaimed films for decades following the very public incident.

So it isn't surprising Samantha wants to share words of wisdom with Dylan, words that can hopefully help pull her through this unfathomably trying ordeal!

Which is why Samantha, who also authored The Girl: A Life in the Shadow of Roman Polanski, decided to publish an open letter for Dylan on the internet.

Samantha also spoke out for those who she feels have no voice. She revealed:

"Can this help anyone else? We should operate on the premise that it must… The first person it should have helped is the victim at the center of it. I hope that her public statements in Vanity Fair and in the New York Times have brought her some comfort. Being able to speak your truth in the face of the very real fact that some will never believe you can be an empowering thing. Most victims do not have the benefit of major publications printing their words, nor the consequences of using such high-profile platforms to be heard. Let's not forget those who are suffering right now, perhaps trapped in months or years of abuse with no escape, those who have no voice."

A compelling point!! There are many victims all over the world we should be concerned about, too!

Then Samantha did something unexpected; she stood up for the alleged abuser!

She pleaded:

"Refrain from jumping to conclusions about the guilt of a person who is accused but not charged with or convicted of a crime. I think we all have a lot of work to do."

Of course, Samantha and Dylan's cases aren't identical. Roman pled guilty and later fled the country. Woody was never charged with anything.

In case you were wondering, despite his conviction for the crime, Roman still won a directing Oscar in 2002 for The Pianist.

We suppose then it would be less weird if Cate Blanchett won the big trophy for her work in Woody's most recent film, Blue Jasmine!

Do U think she will?

    Paid-off!!! She'll say anything that they script her to say…in order to protect the rapists.

    Polanski is the exact reason I can't see any of this harming Woody Allen's career in the long run. Despite serious allegations against Polanski, countless actors work with him from Adrian Brody to Kate Winslet

    Polanski pled guilty and served his time. He fled after a judge wernt back on his word. Please check your facts.

    There isn't a single shred of evidence supporting the claim that Woody Allen molested his daughter, just the words of a jealous ex-wife and a confused child. As a survivor of childhood abuse, I'm offended.

    Too many gifs.

    Re: Emily – As somebody who has gone through abuse, why would you not give somebody the benefit of the doubt instead of victim-shaming them? What if people said you were full of crap?

    Re: Pink Mafia – Ideally it would go both ways, wouldn't it? The claim should be taken with utmost seriousness and investigated, of course, but neither the victim or the accused should be shamed or harshly judged until something substantial and corroborative is brought to light other than he said/she said.
