Picture Comparison of the Week--Dakota Fanning as Sharon Tate? Video on Polanski and Tate Nude Photo, and Actor Pierce Brosnan defends Polanski and More

Here is the lovely Photo Comparison of the Week... Dakota Fanning looks like she is doing her best 'Sharon Tate' in this photo.  The hair is very familiar to Sharon's.

Interesting short video on the David Bailey photograph of Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski that was on sale recently (Thanks to Tammie for this great find! ):

A nice photo of Sharon on an Italian blog:

Brosnan calls for 'closure' on Polanski child sex case
By Ken Sweeney Tuesday January 26 2010

ACTOR Pierce Brosnan , the star of controversial film director Roman Polanski's new film, has called for closure on the child sex saga.

"There's a sadness to the whole situation. What happened was wrong in every way, but I just wish the man well and closure for this time in his life. He's a magnificent director and iconic in the world of cinema," he said.

"My heart goes out to his family, to his wife and to his children.

"I hope this chapter can be closed quickly."

The 76-year-old French-born Polanski, who is under house arrest in Switzerland, last week lost his bid to be sentenced in a US court without having to return there.

He faces an arrest warrant over his conviction, 32 years ago, for unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl. Polanski's lawyer said he would appeal the ruling.

In the film, Brosnan's character also faces a legal challenge. He plays a former British prime minister who is writing his memoirs with the help of a ghost writer, played by Ewan McGregor. There was some doubt last year following Polanski's arrest that 'The Ghost Writer' would be completed.

A number of leading artists, including Martin Scorsese, Salman Rushdie, Sam Mendes and Neil Jordan,signed a petition organised by French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy demanding Polanski's release.

  1. Great comparison, Mike. They got the hair perfectly. They may very well have been using Sharon as inspiration here. Good eye.
