The Polish government isn't letting Roman Polanski off the hook that easily!

Back in the '70s, the Oscar winning filmmaker fled to Europe after pleading guilty to U.S. charges for sleeping with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.

But it looks like the Chinatown director will have to face a fresh extradition to the U.S. — because on Tuesday, Polish officials announced they would appeal a court decision not to force the 82-year-old to face U.S. courts.

Adrien Brody Believes Woody Allen & Roman Polanski's Sexual Assault Allegations Are 'Not Something To Focus On' — SMH!

adrien brody defends woody allen roman polanski

Cannes was certainly not drama free this year as a rape joke at the opening ceremony and a letter penned by Ronan Farrow thrust the allegations of sexual assault against Roman Polanski and Woody Allen back into the headlines.

As a result, several actors who've worked with Allen have since been asked about the separate controversies. On Monday, Adrien Brody addressed the topic on Jenny McCarthy's radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny, and suggested that an artist's personal life should be separated from their body of work. Oh no.

Over a Thursday lunch for the filmmaker's new movie Café Society, the 28-year-old said it was "disappointing" when MC Laurent Lafitte made a dig at Allen's sexual abuse accusations.

The problem? She did this on Charles Manson's birthday.

For those of you who don't know, in 1969 members of the Ohio native's cult murdered Roman Polanski's wife, who was eight months pregnant at the time.

The Mean Girls alum didn't seem to think there was anything wrong with posting this pic (above), captioning the shot:

"#cancer meets #AQUARIUS I LOVE SHARON TATE #themeLOOK 🌸🌻🌼🌸🌻🌼🌸🙏🏻#hippieWINTERCHIC@lavishalice #tagoverload"

A bunch of commenters didn't believe this was the most tasteful decision on LiLo's part. What do U think? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Roman Polanski Will NOT Be Extradited Back To The U.S. To Face Conviction For Rape Charge

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

It looks like Roman Polanski will remain in exile.

On October 30, a court in Poland denied Roman's extradition to the United States to face conviction for the 1977 rape of a then 13-year-old model, Samantha Geimer.

For those who don't know, Polanski was convicted of six counts of sexual assault against Sam but ultimately his lawyer had the charges reduced to one. While the director spent 42 days in a California penitentiary and underwent psychiatric treatment for the crime, he fled to his native country of France after rumors spread that the presiding judge intended to take back the plea deal for more jail time.

Ever since the husband of the late Sharon Tate (the pregnant actress was murdered at the hands of the Manson family) fled the country hours before sentencing, he has faced legal battles abroad.

In 2009, R.P. was arrested in Switzerland and held for a few months upon the United State's request for extradition. Ultimately, the Chinatown filmmaker was released by Swiss authorities.

Cut to 2015 and the latest extradition request has been DENIED by a Polish court where the 82-year-old is currently living.

Citing Roman's age as a primary concern, the presiding judge added:
