A British actress says that Roman Polanski sexually abused her when she was 16, said the London Daily Mail. Charlotte Lewis, 42, says the director talked her into having sex with him during an audition for the 1983 film Pirates. “He just said very coldly, ‘If you’re not a big enough girl to have sex with me, you’re not big enough to do the screen test,’” says Lewis. She says she’s spoken to prosecutors who are seeking Polanski’s extradition to the U.S. in the 1977 case involving his alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl, and hopes that her story will affect his sentencing. “I’m telling the truth and Roman knows it,” said Lewis. “I hope he gets what he deserves.”
