The guy makes a movie. The young girl opposite him ( Playing Pocahontas to his John Smith ) is, according the CNN this morning, age 14 when the film was shot. There are love scenes.
Most places, if you put your hands on a girl age 14 no matter WHAT the “excuse”, you’re busted bigtime. Somehow this guy does love scenes, and everyone takes a pass on him? I’m wondering what the difference is between a love scene involving a 14 year old, and Roman Polanski’s 14 year old. ( or 13. Can’t remember which. )
Saying it’s just a movie scene is bullshit, IMHO. Saying her Mom was on set is also bullshit. She was at the time a seriously underage child doing love scenes with an adult.
Why is this not an issue? It is not relevant to me if she was or was not coerced into doing the aforementioned love scenes. So, it’s kiddie porn when a High School video teacher makes a “little project” where he makes out and perhaps fondles a 14 year old girl, but if it’s a Hollywood movie, it’s okay? “Fatty” Arbuckle must be spinning in is grave right about now. . :rolleyes:
And, for the legally picky, if he didn’t rape her, he surely might be charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, sexual battery, and so on. Sexual abuse and assault does not equal penetration, so whether or not he fucked her seems totally besides the point here.
It’s kiddie porn. Why has he not been charged?
