  • French woman claims director Roman Polanski raped her in 1975

The French actress Valentine Monnier accuses the Officer and a Spy director of violently raping her in 1975 in a Friday story in Le Parisien.

"I had no link with him, neither personal nor professional, and I hardly knew him", Ms Monnier told Le Parisien. "The memory does not fade", Valentine shared with the French publication. "Life had not trained me to be suspicious", she told the paper. Both women were contacted by Le Parisien and confirmed Monnier telling them about the event.

Roman has been living in exile in France since 1978 before he could be sentenced in the case.

The attorney reportedly "deplored" that the claim is being made public shortly before the 86-year-old's latest film J'accuse is released in France.

Monnier said she "took refuge" with an acquaintance of Polanski - and contacted him for the first time a month ago, Le Parisien reported.

According to Deadline, Polanski - whose second wife, actress Sharon Tate, was murdered by members of the Charles Manson "Family" in 1969 - has not returned to the USA since fleeing the country in 1978 after he pleaded guilty to statutory rape. "They took to visiting my chalet, not necessarily to make love-though some of them did-but to listen to rock music and sit around the fire and talk", he said.

According to the outlet, Monnier explained how the film triggered her decision to go public. The newspaper met with the man, who asked to remain anonymous, in his lawyer's office. When she got upstairs, she reported Polanski was naked. He said he believed her story. Monnier said she recounted what had happened to her that very night to two women who were also staying in Polanski's chalet: her best friend and another woman who became Polanski's girlfriend for four years.

It's been almost 45-years since the alleged rape took place, but Valentine says she only recently felt the need to share her story after finding out the director's film J'Accuse will be released in French theaters next week. But he also said he not recall her saying that she had been raped, "or I would have done something".

"An Officer and a Spy" premiered at the Venice Film Festival in August, and is scheduled to be released in France next week.
