Two months later, Langer told the New York Times that her decision to speak out against Polanski was partly inspired by Robin's statement.

In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, Langer said she's bringing the claim against the 84-year-old "Rosemary's Baby" director now because she believes the statute of limitations, which Switzerland has eliminated in child sex abuse cases, would allow her complaint to be investigated.

She alleged that while Roman did not make any sexual advances during filming, he attacked her one night in a bedroom.

Asked why she did not report he claims earlier, Ms Langer said: "My mother would have had a heart attack". I felt ashamed and embarrassed and lost and solo'.

The Oscar-winning director pleaded guilty to statutory rape in 1978 when 13-year-old Samantha Geimer accused him of drugging her and sexually assaulting her at a party - before another woman came forward in August, accusing him of "sexually victimising" her when she was 16 in 1973.

The most famous case occurred in 1977, with the filmmaker admitting to a California court that he raped 13-year-old Samantha Geimer.

It was during that time that Langer says Polanski raped her again despite her best efforts to fight back while she was alone at a residence she was sharing with others.

Polanski's lawyer Harland Braun declined to comment on Langer's accusation.

In addition to these allegations, British actress Charlotte Lewis said in 2010 that Polanski sexually assaulted her in 1983 when she was a teenager, a claim Polanski's lawyers had rejected as a lie.

'As far as what I did: It's over.

Ms Langer, who had a career as an actress, was first introduced to Mr Polanski while she was working for a modeling agency in Munich as a child.

However, he fled the United States before he could be sentenced and remains a fugitive. I then was locked up here after this festival [in 2009].

The director is facing yet another rape allegation. As a part of a plea bargain, Polanski pled guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, underwent psychiatric evaluation and spent 42 days in jail. "So in the sum, I did about four or five times more than what was promised to me", noted Polanski. "This had an influence on all of my life". And also because her parents are no longer alive. Polanski is still a fugitive from the USA justice system.
