Kirstie Alley is one Hollywood star not supporting revered filmmaker Roman Polanski as he battles extradition to the U.S. to face sentencing for a 32-year-old sex crime.
The Rosemary’s Baby director fled America on the eve of sentencing for the offense and has lived in exile in France for 30 years. Polanski was apprehended by Swiss pollice while attending a film festival in Zurich on Sunday and is expected to be extradited to Los Angeles, where he faces sentencing after pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
Woody Allen, Penelope Cruz and Harvey Weinstein are among the celebrities insisting Polanski doesn’t deserve jail taime, but the Cheers actress in emphatic her should face justice.
In a post on her Twitter.com page Wednesday, Kirstie wrote: “JUST FOR THE RECORD… RAPE IS RAPE… This is one Hollywood star who does not CELEBRATE or DEFEND Roman Polanski.”
