The Rosemary's Baby director has been confined to his Swiss chalet since December (09), following his September (09) arrest in Zurich, 32 years after he fled America and skipped sentencing on a child-sex charge.
Lawmakers in an appeals court in Los Angles ruled last week (23Apr10) that the Oscar winner cannot be sentenced in absentia and must now return to California to receive his punishment after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with 13-year-old Samantha Geimer at a party in 1977.
And on Thursday (29Apr10), the star's lawyers, Chad Hummel and Bart Dalton, requested permission to submit the testimony of retired Deputy District Attorney Roger Gunson to Swiss authorities.
Gunson testified earlier this year (09) in a conditional examination but L.A.'s Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza kept the transcripts sealed.
Polanski's attorneys claim the transcripts will prove that the extradition request is based on false and incomplete statements by officials at the Los Angeles District Attorney's office.
The Hours star insists it's always best to confront your partner if you suspect infidelity - before turning to others for help.
In Chloe, Moore hires a prostitute, portrayed by Amanda Seyfried, to test her husband (Liam Neeson).
But the actress hopes suspicious women don't take the movie home with them.
She says, "Having been married for a long time and having friends who were married a long time I can't tell you the phone calls I've gotten from somebody saying, 'Listen, I have to talk to you about this because I think he's doing X.'
"You say to them, 'Have you talked to him about it?' and they haven't. I think women do that a lot. I think we turn to our friends and say, 'He was out really late? Do you think he's seeing somebody?'
"I think there is a tendency within relationships to sometimes turn out for information with a girlfriend before you talk to your husband about it. I have seen that a lot; people asking outside the marriage for advice."
Moore has been married to second husband Bart Freundlich since 2003.
The redhead beauty's nine-year marriage to actor John Gould Rubin ended in 1995, and she had vowed never to walk down the aisle again.
But Moore changed her mind after an eye-opening therapy session in 2003, following the birth of her second baby with Freundlich.
She says, "For me the only reason to get married was my children. I had a therapist who said marriage is really a container for a family."
Moore, who shares 12-year-old son Caleb and seven-year-old daughter Liv with the filmmaker, now admits her second marriage is a grounding force amid her hectic Hollywood lifestyle.
She adds, "Freud says you need love and work, and a family and a job give you a balance... One element can't give you everything. You can have friends in movies and plays you make, but they're not your family. And you can't expect family to give you the stimulation work is going to provide, because that is not their responsibility."
The British beauty has taken charge of Fashion for Relief and has called on pals including Christy Turlington and Marc Jacobs to take part in the event.
But Campbell insists she would not have been able to organise the event at such short notice without the help of celebrity designer Charlotte Ronson - who graciously gave up her original time slot to aid the Haitian relief effort.
Campbell explains, "Fashion for Relief only works if everyone comes together and makes it work."
And the supermodel's philanthropy has won her high praise from IMG Models agency boss Ivan Bart.
Bart says, "Naomi is a superstar and has a lot of connections. She can make some phone calls and put on a show."
Items from the charity fashion show, which will feature a specially-designed Louis Vuitton handbag by Jacobs, will go on sale on the Net-a-Porter website in March (10) and all proceeds will be donated to the CARE organisation, which works to fight global poverty.
New York Fashion Week kicks off next week (begs08Feb10).
Caleb, The Hours actress' son with director husband Bart Freundlich, has become a big winter sports enthusiast growing up in New York.
But he was forced to take some time off from the slopes after crushing his wrist in a fall during a recent excursion.
Moore says, "My son is an active snowboarder and he just broke his wrist snowboarding."
The concerned mum insists the teen is recovering quickly - but she's more concerned about her son's hygiene than his broken bones
She laughs, "Let me tell you - nothing compares to the smell of a 12-year-old's cast when it comes off. They just emanate an odour at 12 - it's incomparable."
According to the Associated Press, attorneys Chad Hummell and Bart Dalton are accusing the district attorney of official misconduct while trying to extradite Polanski from Europe to the U.S. to face sentencing over his 1977 charge of unlawful sex with a minor.
Polanski pleaded guilty to the charge but fled to Europe in 1978 before he could be handed his punishment, and remained a fugitive until he was arrested in Switzerland last year (09).
Now the star's lawyers allege District Attorney Steve Cooley has made mistakes in the extradition process, claiming he was "directing or at least condoning his office presenting a false record to the Swiss government, all in an attempt to extradite Mr. Polanski without revealing facts that render extradition impermissible."
They added, "The only unique circumstance in this case is its notoriety. Politics seems to be interfering with the just administration of the law."
The lawyers have now filed a request to hold a hearing for witnesses to testify against the prosecution.
Polanski has asked an American judge to pass sentence on him while he remains under house arrest in Switzerland, which his attorneys maintain will end the legal battle.
His attorneys add: "To allow Mr. Polanski to be sentenced in absentia could finally end this case without Mr. Polanski needing to return to the jurisdiction."
A judge will rule on Friday (22Jan10) whether or not Polanski can be sentenced in absentia.
"I can't draw The Simpsons strictly to template. If I walked into The Simpsons animation studio in disguise and took the test, they wouldn't hire me. There are now rules to drawing The Simpsons, but I don't actually draw that way. I don't know if Bart has nine points of hair or whatever." THE SIMPSONS creator MATT GROENING is out of practice.
Movie creature Bart teams up with Grant for one wilderness scene in the new film - and Lawrence still can't believe the nervous Brit was game for the terrifying onscreen encounter.
He says, "If Bart snapped and decided this was the day he would eat somebody, he would've definitely and completely chewed up Hugh. I thought it was very courageous of Hugh.
"When the bear finally came out of the cage it was gigantic. You can't imagine the size of it's head; it is just overwhelming.
"We had a big safety meeting beforehand with the crew and the actors, and the trainers tell you all the things not to do that make you unbelievably tense.
"The important thing is the bear will sense your tension, so you have to remain calm, no sudden movements. Everything they said in an attempt to calm us down worked in the opposite way.
"But Bart was just another person on the crew five hours in and the trainers kept him very happy with large cans of iced tea."
The Rosemary's Baby director is being held behind bars in Switzerland following his arrest in September (09) on an international warrant relating to a 1977 charge of unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl. Polanski pleaded guilty to the crime but fled the U.S. in 1978 before he could be sentenced.
U.S. authorities formally requested his extradition last month (Oct09) but Swiss officials have yet to decide whether to grant the motion.
French lawyer Herve Temime has been keeping the press updated on Polanski's progress and wellbeing in jail, and told local newspaper Le Figaro last week (ends20Nov09) the filmmaker plans to fight any attempts to send him back to the U.S. to face his punishment.
Temime said: "We maintain that Mr Polanski did not face a fair trial in Los Angeles. For all these reasons, among others, his position remains unchanged: he will not accept being extradited to the United States."
But Polanski's Los Angeles-based attorneys Douglas Dalton, Bart Dalton and Chad Hummel have dismissed Temime's comments, insisting he is not authorised to speak on behalf of the director.
In a statement, they say, "Any statements made in the press to the effect that Mr. Polanski will not accept lawful orders of the courts, including relating to extradition, are not true."
The trio added that Dr. Lorenz Erni in Switzerland and Polanski himself are the only others "authorised to speak on his behalf" regarding the unlawful sex charge.
Polanski, who has been deemed a "flight risk", has seen three bail attempts refused and is expected to remain in jail for several more months until Swiss authorities rule on the U.S. extradition request.
The Austin Powers actor admits he auditioned numerous times early on in his career to advertise his favourite chocolate bar, but was repeatedly turned away.
So it was a dream come true when Butterfinger bosses at parent company Nestle Confections & Snacks approached him over the summer (09) to front their new promotional campaign - making him the brand's first celebrity spokesperson.
He says, "I've been into candy all my life and Butterfinger is my favourite candy bar. I even auditioned for Butterfinger commercials when I was doing commercials, and never got one. And then they approached me to do something."
The last famous face to appear in Butterfinger commercials was cartoon character Bart Simpson, who was used to promote the candy in the late 1990s.
