According to our nation’s paper of record, the Hollywood Reporter, Roman Polanski is featured in a new documentary about his legal herstory in which he offers an apology to Samantha Greimer, the woman he drugged and assaulted when she was only 13 years old.

Director Roman Polanski publicly apologized to Samantha Greimer, the woman he sexually assaulted 33 years ago, in a new documentary that had its world premiere Tuesday at the Zurich Film Festival.

“She is a double victim: my victim and a victim of the press,” the Oscar-winning director says near the end of Laurent Bouzereau’s Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir.

Uh, hey Roman, let’s try that again buddy, cool? No, no, that was great, you’re doing great, we just want to get one more take on the apology for safety so that we have something to work with in the editing room. First of all, let’s lose the part about the press. Roman. Roman, please. You know that I understand what you’re saying, I hear you, dude. But it kind of seems like you’re trying to split the guilt here 50/50 between you and “the press,” and I think, you know, it’s your first public apology in 34 years so I think you should keep it simple and leave the media out of it. Me? What would I have you say? Hmm, OK, right, OK, yeah, how about: DEAR SAMANTHA GREIMER, I AM VERY SORRY THAT I DRUGGED AND SODOMIZED YOU WHEN YOU WERE 13 YEARS OLD. And that’s it. Action!

  1. What? You were expecting an apology-apology?

  2. Whatever happened to him being held up in Switzerland? (It was Switzerland, right?) Like they just let him…go? Yeesh, what a nightmare.

  3. In Roman Polanski’s defense (something I never thought I would say), the victim DID say in an interview early this year that the media hurt her a lot worse than anything that he did. Of course, the media was a direct result of the fact that he drugged and sodomized her, so, you know, still his fault.

  4. “I’m sorry everyone in the media made a big deal out of what I did to you a while back. I mean, what could I do?”

  5. ‘Press conference? Bleh, no, no thank you. Documentary? Ooh, yes please. How many cameras again? Get all of the cameras and point them at me please when I do this. Ready? Neat.’ RP

  6. he probably fucks like dog shit AMMIRIGHT? #poortaste

  7. “You are our victim and also the victim of a disgusting child rapist.” – The media’s apology

  8. I still can’t get over the people who think this was just plain old vanilla sex with a 13 year old girl(!!!?!!) and not him straight up raping her (which it totally was, if you do like 5 seconds of reading about it). Or people who are like “she forgave him! It’s all fine now!”

  9. “GO TO JAIL!!!!” – everyone

  10. “In a sense, she is a double victim. A victim of me drugging her, and also a victim of me sodomizing her. So, sorry for both of those things.”

    • I hope I’m not the only one who read that “double victim” think and immediately thought he was going to admit to some horrible, horrible DP action.

      Actually, on second those, I hope I WAS the only one who thought that.

      • I met you half way; while I did not think that initially, my mind went straight there as soon as I started reading your reply. So we’re similar enough that we could likely be roommates, but not similar enough that you could get over my collection of “Snow Dogs 2″ memorabilia, something that will ultimately force one of us to move out of the apartment.

      • “In a sense, she is a double victim. Because actually I sodomized her twice. ZING!! GOTCHA!”

  11. What a complete piece of shit.

  12. “He made ‘Chinatown’!”
    – Hollywood

  13. We’ve all mostly forgotten that stolen Nazi riches was/is hidden there by protection of the govt but every time this bastard pops up we’re reminded why we should hate this country. It’s really in their interest to get rid of this P.O.S.
