Polanski's Luxury Lifestyle

“Hasn’t he suffered enough already?” Roman Polanski’s defenders ask. If this is suffering, sign us up: The New York Daily News checks out Polanski’s lifestyle in Europe, where he split time between a penthouse apartment on the Avenue Montaigne, one of Paris’ swankiest streets, and at a chalet he called the “Milky Way” at a Swiss ski resort. Polanski, meanwhile, has hired a hotshot lawyer who’s a close friend of Attorney General Eric Holder. Also, a bevy of A-list directors, including Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, and David Lynch, have signed a petition protesting Polanski’s detention.
