no title

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.

She clarified to IndieWire:

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:

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

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersOscarsWoody AllenGIFs

samantha geimer roman polanski unlawful sexual intercourse woody allen dylan farrow open letter

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:

roman polanski statutory rape Samantha Geimer book The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow

Thirty-five years ago, Roman Polanski raped Samantha Geimer.

The acclaimed filmmaker was in his mid 40s when he had sex with a 13 year-old girl at Jack Nicholson's home after allegedly drugging her and getting her drunk.

Tired of living in the negative limelight of an Oscar-winning director's sex scandal, Samantha — now 47 — is releasing her memoirs entitled The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow of Roman Polanski.

We honestly aren't sure how a book about the horrible incident back in 1977 will help the world forget about it, but she

Controversial Director Roman Polanski Getting Honored

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersAwardzLarry King

roman polanski to be honored with lifetime achievement award

Well, this is bound to piss some people off.

A little bit over a year ago, Roman Polanski's rape victim Samantha Geimer spoke up about the director's crime on Larry King Live.

Now, Polanski is being honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival on Sept. 27.

While we understand that he's had an impressive career, we're not sure if someone with his criminal track record deserves so much positive recognition.

What do U think? Does Roman Polanski deserve a lifetime achievement award???

Roman Polanski Rape Victim Speaks

It's actually fascinating to hear her take on everything.

Check out (above) these clips from Larry King Live of Samantha Geimer, who was raped by Roman Polanski when she was 13, discuss the horrific event and explain that she doesn't blame him as much as she does the media for the way they handled reporting on her and the court case!

We obviously still think that Polanski should be held accountable for his despicable crime, but we also understand that the victim herself has every right to feel however she wants about what she endured.

What do U think?? Do U agree with Geimer's perspective on Polanski??
