Paying For It
This permanent A+ list mostly movie actor who is an Academy Award winner/nominee has a secret.
No, not the one where he cheated on his long suffering wife with a large number of women who seemingly decreased in age each year.
The wife was finally kicked to the curb for one of them. So, no, not that secret.
Instead, he has a much bigger one that happened way back in the day when he was just getting that big break.
That one movie people still quote today.
On the set for that movie were multiple tweens and young teens.
Our actor would invite them out and then over to his new friend’s house.
The friend is a foreign born former A list mostly movie director who is a multiple Academy Award winner/nominee.
There, the two of them would get the tweens and teens wasted and have sex with them before giving them cab fare home.
Our A list director was busted for one of those teens.
The reason the director was at the home of someone else was because our actor was using the director’s house for a little or-gy of tweens and teens.
Our director felt he would never have been busted if he had been at his own home with the girl surrounded by others her age.
Our actor agreed and has been sending money to the director and has paid for almost of all the legal bills for the director over the last four decades.
Not Jack Nicholson.

Inside story of the night that Polanski raped a child
In the flat light of the grand-jury room, a nervous, deeply embarrassed 13-year-old girl sat alone — no attor ney, no mother, no friend.
The questions that day in March 1977 were clinical in tone.
The answers would set off a furor from Hollywood to London and Paris that has yet to subside.
Samantha Gailey — sandy brown hair, dimpled chin, missing class at her junior high in Woodland Hills — described her alleged rape by director Roman Polanski two weeks before at Jack Nicholson’s home above Franklin Canyon.
“After he kissed you, did he say anything?” asked the prosecutor, Roger Gunson.
“No,” the girl said.
“Did you say anything?”
“No, besides I was just going, ‘No, come on, let’s go home . . .’ He said, ‘I’ll take you home soon.’ ”
“Then what happened?”
“And then he went down and started performing cuddliness . . . He placed his mouth on my vagina . . . I was ready to cry. I was kind of — I was going, ‘No. Come on. Stop it.’ But I was afraid.”
Samantha’s testimony that day was unequivocal.
A generation of spectacle would follow: Polanski’s indictment, his plea deal, his flight from the country, allegations of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct, his decades of exile and critical success, his Oscar, a sympathetic HBO documentary last year, his rearrest in Switzerland last month.
Along the way, various people would scrub the core allegations into something more benign — a probation officer would deem the crime a “spontaneous” act of “poor judgment,” a prison psychiatrist would call it “playful mutual eroticism.”
But an extensive review of several thousand court documents, as well as numerous interviews, shows a basic dynamic defining the entire saga — one force trying to drive debate away from a young girl’s unshaken allegations, and another trying to reel it back in.
SAMANTHA had met Polanski through her mother, Susan, a televi sion actress. The director said he had an assignment to photograph young girls for a Paris fashion magazine, Vogue Hommes, and had heard about Samantha from a mutual friend.
Polanski went to her home on the afternoon of Feb. 20 and took some pictures in the hills nearby. He picked her up again on March 10, stopped at Jacqueline Bisset’s house and, as the light was fading, went to Nicholson’s compound on Mulholland Drive.
Polanski dropped Samantha off at her home a few hours later and went about his business. He met with Robert De Niro that evening to discuss making a movie based on a William Goldman novel, “Magic.”
The next night, a team of seven police investigators and prosecutors pulled up to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Polanski, 43, was meeting friends in the lobby.
The lead detective, Philip Vannatter, spotted him and strode up, quietly saying he had a warrant for his arrest and needed to search his room.
“We don’t want to create a sensation,” the detective said, according to Polanski’s 1984 autobiography. Polanski asked what the charge was.
Polanski led him to the suite, according to Vannatter’s grand-jury testimony. As they walked, the detective saw him pull what looked like a tablet out of his coat pocket and lower his cupped hand, as if he were going to drop it on the floor. – Read more here – Source
