In a resurfaced 2003 interview with Howard Stern, Tarantino said Geimer “wanted to have it and dated the guy.” He also called Geimer a “party girl” and said that sex with a minor doesn’t rise to the level of rape.
Facing an online backlash, Tarantino has changed his position and called his remarks “cavalier.”
“Fifteen years later, I realize how wrong I was,” Tarantino said. “Ms. Geimer Was raped by Roman Polanski.”
In an interview with the Daily News, Geimer said, “I’m not upset, but I would probably feel better if he realizes now that he was wrong, after 15 years, after hearing the facts. Nobody has to be pissed off on my behalf. I’m okay.”
Polanski was arrested in 1977 for five offenses following the alleged assault, including rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy
