Roman Polanski, sadly known more for being a child rapist than for his films, said a lot of befuddling things about women at Cannes. His words would be a lot more offensive if they weren’t so hilarious, hilarious because of how confusing and bizarre they are. From Breitbart:
(AP) CANNES, France–Roman Polanski says the birth control pill has had a “masculinizing” effect on women.
The director said the pill has “changed the place of women in our times,” while talking to reporters Saturday at the Cannes Film Festival. He was there to premiere his film “Venus in Fur,” adapted from the David Ives play.
Polanski said the leveling of the sexes is “idiotic” and lamented that “offering flowers to a lady” has become “indecent.”
Was something lost in translation here? His quotes sound like someone playing a game of Mad Libs with a pretentious friend. Thankfully, nothing Roman Polanski says matters at all to anyone, so we’re good here. And none of this changes the fact that Rosemary’s Baby is an amazing film, and yes, that is a fact.
Enjoy these photos of the smarmy faced Polanski at Cannes with his stunning actress wife, Emmanuelle Seigner.
And by the way how much does this photo
remind us of this?
