In a new interview with Buzzfeed, the Annihilation star admits she made a mistake by "not thinking about it enough" and simply signing her name because someone she respected asked her to.

She explained to the outlet:

Samantha Geimer does not want anyone twisting her words.

The woman who was raped by Roman Polanski in 1977 when she was just 13 years old found herself in the spotlight again this week after an old Quentin Tarantino interview was unearthed in which he flippantly defended Polanski.

Read Quentin Tarantino's Public Apology Letter To Roman Polanski's Rape Victim

no title

Quentin Tarantino is eating his words, and rightfully so.

The Django Unchained director may be proud of the words he's written, but what he said in a 2003 Howard Stern interview he will not defend.

In case you missed it, in the recently unearthed episode he defended Roman Polanski, saying his 13-year-old rape victim "wanted to have it" and that it was statutory but "not rape."

The victim, Samantha Geimer, now 54, has already publicly forgiven the filmmaker, saying she's sure he "realizes now that he was wrong."

He does.

Tarantino reached out to Geimer by phone to apologize personally and released a public apology letter to IndieWire on Thursday as well, writing:

Roman Polanski's Victim Forgives Quentin Tarantino For Suggesting Her Rape Was Consensual — As Long As He Doesn't 'Keep Talking That Way'

no title

For the record, Samantha Geimer did NOT want to be raped by Roman Polanski when she was 13 years old.

But she also isn't holding Quentin Tarantino accountable for suggesting she did in an interview 15 years ago.

Geimer, now 54, said she was shocked to learn that the Pulp Fiction director went on Howard Stern's radio show in 2003 and characterized her 1977 rape as a consensual encounter, telling the NY Daily News:

"He was wrong. I bet he knows it. I hope he doesn't make an ass of himself and keep talking that way."

The resurfaced interview ignited a wave of outrage against the filmmaker, who was already in the internet's crosshairs for forcing Uma Thurman to perform a life-risking stunt on Kill Bill.

Polanski's victim, however, is cutting Tarantino some slack over his ignorant words — assuming, of course, he has since evolved his logic. Geimer said:

Quentin Tarantino Once Claimed Roman Polanski's 13-Year-Old Sexual Assault Victim 'Wanted To Have It'!

quentin tarantino once ferociously defend roman polanski

Quentin Tarantino's publicist must be working 24/7 right now.

Amid Uma Thurman's distressing confession that she was bullied into doing a stunt on Kill Bill which left her with a long-lasting bodily injury, a 2003 interview with Howard Stern has since resurfaced, painting the celebrated director as a monster. Specifically, while discussing Roman Polanski's sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl, Tarantino claimed the victim "wanted to have it."

Roman Polanski DENIES Molesting 10-Year-Old Girl In 1975!

no title

The controversy surrounding Roman Polanski continues.

As we reported in October, artist Marianne Barnard told The Sun the Rosemary's Baby director "molested" her when she was 10 in 1975 at a photo shoot in Malibu.

Allegedly, the incident happened after her mother disappeared from set, leaving the two of them alone. The model says the experience has caused her to have PTSD and claustrophobia issues.

Not only has Barnard filed an official report with the LAPD's sex crimes unit, she started a petition to have Roman removed from The Academy.

On Tuesday, according to TMZ, the filmmaker's attorney Harlan Braun says the allegations are false, and they have hired their own private investigators to look into the case. Apparently, Marianne's mother wouldn't talk to the PIs, and they've handed over their findings to the LAPD.

Although the case falls outside the statute of limitations (meaning Polanski can't be charged), authorities opened the investigation to potentially find evidence connected to other disputes.

In 1978, Polanski famously fled the United States after pleading guilty to statutory rape against then-13-year-old Samantha Geimer.
