Why are many Hollywood celebrities so stupid?
Actor Peter Fonda, 69, believes authorities have bigger fish to fry than director Roman Polanski.
Fonda was in Zurich, Switzerland for a film festival at which Polanski was to obtain an award. Authorities intercepted and arrested the famed director when he arrived in Zurich to attend the event.
According to the Associated Press, Fonda told a radio station, “We should have been celebrating the arrest of Osama bin Laden and not the arrest of Polanski.”
Fonda went on to say Polanski “is not responsible for killing anyone” and commented on how the victim, Samantha Geimer, has publicly forgiven Polanski and has asked the case be dismissed.
Polanski was convicted of raping 13-year-old Geimer during a photo shoot, but fled the country in 1978 prior to sentencing. He is now fighting extradition from Switzerland to the U.S.
