Polanski Branded "Dishonorable"

22 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Roman Polanski has been slammed by Vanity Fair's lawyer Tom Shields as dishonorable for not appearing in person at his libel trial in London's High Court. The Rosemary's Baby maverick is suing publisher Conde Nast over a Vanity Fair article in which he's accused of seducing a woman on the way to the burial of his wife Sharon Tate, who was murdered by followers of Charles Manson in 1969. The magazine has since accepted the incident did not happen at the time of the funeral, but maintains it occurred about two weeks later. Shields attacked what he called "Roman's law of morality. This law knows of no rules - only violations of civilized conduct which, it appears, can be readily excused." He went on to add, "As to whether Mr. Polanski's reputation is capable of being damaged, sadly, we would say, it is beyond repair. An honorable man would come to this court, an honorable man would return to California, an honorable man would not behave the way he behaved - even in the swinging '60s." Shields challenged the jury to give Polanski, who lives in Paris, France, "the price of a cinema ticket or the price of the Eurostar train ticket that could have brought him to you. By that symbolic award, you can send a message across the (English) Channel about the moral values which decent people cherish." The 71-year-old film-maker has given evidence from France via video link to avoid extradition to America, where he's wanted for questioning on child sex charges dating back to 1977. »

Polanski "Shocked Diners with Inappropriate Proposition"

21 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Roman Polanski created an atmosphere of "shock and awe" in the restaurant where he allegedly propositioned a woman before his murdered wife Sharon Tate's funeral, the London court in the director's libel trial heard yesterday. The Rosemary's Baby maverick is suing publisher Conde Nast over a Vanity Fair article in which he's accused of seducing a woman on the way to the burial of Tate, who was murdered by followers of Charles Manson in 1969. But the writer of the controversial feature, Lewis Lapham, claims he was at New York restaurant Elaine's, where the alleged incident took place, and was shocked when he overheard the 71-year-old chatting-up a "Swedish beauty" so soon after Tate's death. And Lapham claims a "hushed silence" fell upon the eaterie because of the "notoriety and horrible circumstances of his wife's murder and general sympathy for a man having suffered that sorrow". He told jurors Polanski had pulled up a chair between him and his friend Edward Perlberg's girlfriend Beate Telle and then began to talk to her in a forward way, praising her beauty. Lapham said, "He began to romance her and at one point had his hand on her leg and said, 'I could put you in the movies. I could make you the next Sharon Tate' He was attempting to impress her and express admiration for her looks. I was impressed by the remark not only because it was tasteless and vulgar and because it was a cliché." The 71-year-old gave evidence from France via video link to avoid extradition to America, where he's wanted for questioning on child sex charges dating back to 1977. »

Farrow Defends Polanski in Court

20 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mia Farrow told a London court yesterday Roman Polanski was in "really bad shape" when he was alleged to have tried to seduce a woman in a restaurant just days after his wife Sharon Tate was murdered. Polanski is suing Vanity Fair magazine, after they alleged in a 2002 article he pursued a "Swedish beauty" at Elaine's restaurant in New York in 1969 - even though they later conceded the alleged event took place several weeks after Tate was buried. Farrow - who starred in Polanski's 1968 movie Rosemary's Baby - told the court, "He was in really bad shape at that time. He was unable to talk about anything else. When we walked around and around, he kept saying 'Why?' and 'Who could have done this?"' When quizzed by Vanity Fair's lawyer about Polanski's admission he had casual sex with several women after Tate's death, Farrow replied, "I feel there's a big distinction, especially for a man, between relationships and having sex. I could never pass judgment if someone in that frame of mind seeks comfort in any way that does not harm anyone." Polanski has been giving evidence via video link from his home in Paris, because he is wanted in America after pleading guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl there in 1977. If he steps foot on British soil he risks extradition. »

Polanski Sought Solace in Sex After Tate's Murder

20 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Troubled director Roman Polanski testified at his London libel case on Monday that he had sex with a catalogue of "fresh-faced, nubile" teenagers, just four months after his wife Sharon Tate was murdered by followers of serial killer Charles Manson. The Rosemary's Baby maverick is suing publisher Conde Nast, over a Vanity Fair article, in which he's accused of propositioning a woman on the way to the funeral of his actress wife in 1969, with the promise he'd make her "the next Sharon Tate". The 71-year-old gave evidence from France via video link to avoid extradition to America, where he's wanted for questioning on child sex charges dating back to 1977. The prosecution suggested Polanski had a penchant for young ladies, and such an uncontrollable libido, he seduced a string of women less than a month after the death of Tate, who was eight month's pregnant. But the Polish film-maker told jurors he took solace in sex following Tate's death, and seduced numerous teenagers from a finishing school in Gstaad, Switzerland, as well as an air hostess and Mamas And Papas singer Michelle Phillips, who was still married to bandmate John Phillips at the time. He told the court, "The death of Sharon and the whole tragedy was a measurable shock to me and at such moments some people turn to drugs, others to alcohol, some go to a monastery. But for me, it was sex. I looked for solace and tried to forget." »

Polanski Shocked by Vanity Fair Article

19 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Troubled director Roman Polanski testified at his London libel case yesterday that he was left in a "state of shock" after reading a magazine article in which he's accused of propositioning a woman on the way to the funeral of his late wife Sharon Tate. The Rosemary's Baby maverick is suing publisher Conde Nast, over the Vanity Fair piece, which alleges he tried to seduce a woman on the way to the burial of Tate, who was murdered by followers of serial killer Charles Manson in 1969. And Polanski told jurors it was the most upsetting article about him he's ever read, because it suggests he did not care about his wife. He told the jury of nine men and three women, "This was the worst thing ever written about me. It's absolutely not true. I was in shock when I read it. But I think it was particularly hurtful, because it dishonors my memory of Sharon. It's all lies. That's not the way I behave. Still I had some honour. Still I have it now. Sharon was sweet, bright, brilliant. She had a great sense of humor. She was in my eyes the perfect woman." The 71-year-old gave evidence from France via video link for the case to avoid extradition to America, where he's wanted for questioning on child sex charges dating back to 1977. »

Polanski To Testify Via Video

18 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Troubled director Roman Polanski will give evidence from France via video link for his libel case in London next week to avoid extradition to America, where he's wanted on child sex charges. The Rosemary's Baby maverick fled the US over 25 years ago after admitting to having sex with girl of 13, but although he's protected from extradition in France, the same cover does not apply in the UK. And the 71-year-old is suing publisher Conde Nast, over a Vanity Fair magazine article, in which he's accused of propositioning a woman on the way to the funeral of his late wife Sharon Tate, who was murdered by followers of Charles Manson in 1969. Actress Mia Farrow was present at New York restaurant Elaine's, where the alleged incident took place, and will join Sharon's sister Debra Tate at the witness stand. »

Banderas and Griffith See Dakota Application Turned Down

7 January 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Married couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have had an application to move into New York's notorious Dakota building turned down - because residents don't want another John Lennon "incident". Ex-Beatle Lennon lived in the exclusive Manhattan residence for years before he was murdered at its entrance on December 8, 1980. The Dakota's inhabitants are anxious to avoid a repeat occurrence and so refused Banderas and Griffith's request to purchase a $3.8 million apartment. One says, "How could they be serious? The building is fickle when it comes to celebrities. They don't want another Lennon incident." The Dakota building was also the setting of director Roman Polanski's classic 1968 film Rosemary's Baby. »
