A French actress has accused filmmaker Roman Polanski of raping her when she was just 18 years old. The actress told Le Parisien about the alleged assault in an interview published on Friday, reports eonline.com. “In 1975, I was raped by Roman Polanski,” she claimed in a statement to Le Parisien. “I had no connection to him, personal or professional, and barely knew him. This was an extreme act of violence, after we went skiing at his chalet in Gstaad. He hit me, ripped off my clothes until I surrendered, and made me submit to a number of unpleasant acts. I had just turned 18 years old.”

Le Parisien reported they were able to corroborate her story with several individuals, who she told about the alleged attack in the days after. It’s been nearly 45-years since the alleged rape took place, but she said she only recently felt the need to share her story after finding out the director’s film “J’Accuse” will be released in French theatres next week.
