Jamie Foxx discusses Roman Polanski
Numerous Hollywood celebrities expressed outrage when filmmaker Roman Polanski was recently arrested 32 years after he was convicted of having a sex with a 13-year-old girl. (If you’re not familiar with the Roman Polanski saga, click here to read the back story).
Many celebrities came to Polanski’s defense saying he shouldn’t have been arrested because the underage sex incident occurred more than three decades ago.
However, one celebrity finally stood up and spoke out against Polanski. In an interview with Parade magazine, actor/singer Jamie Foxx gave his opinion on the Polanski incident.
Foxx said “If it had been my daughter who was barely a teenager–my daughter is 15–Roman Polanski would be missing . . . period. It wouldn’t even get to the court case. But, that’s me and I wouldn’t want anyone else to follow that because you should let the justice system work it out. On the other hand, I don’t know Roman Polanski, but maybe if I had a relationship with him my answer would be different. I just think this whole issue is bigger than Roman Polanski.”
I’m glad one celebrity has the guts to stand up and recognize that it’s wrong for a middle-aged man to have sex with a 13-year-old girl. (Polanski was 44 years old at the time of the incident).
I hope more celebrities follow Jamie’s example.
