French actress/singer Emmanuelle Seigner, 43, has stood by her husband as he fights extradition to the U.S. relating to a 1977 charge of unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl.
Polanski, 76, pleaded guilty to the accusation but fled America on the eve of sentencing. Swiss police detained the Chinatown moviemaker at a film festival last September (09) and he has since been placed under house arrest at his ski chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland.
In a rare TV interview in Poland, Seigner, who recently revealed she and her children, Elvis and Morgane, are not living with Polanski, admits their life is "good" but "not ideal".
But she is sure the case will be "solved and over pretty soon", adding, "The toughest moments are behind us."
The full interview is due to be aired on Poland's TVN24 network on Monday (15Mar10).
In a rare interview, The Ninth Gate star has told Polish magazine Viva! she and her children Elvis and Morgane are not living with the embattled filmmaker at the family's ski chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland - where Polanski is under house arrest fighting extradition to the U.S..
The filmmaker fled America on the eve of sentencing after pleading guilty to a charge of unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
Swiss police caught up with Polanski at a film festival last year (Sep09) and he spent almost four months behind bars before posting bail and being placed under house arrest.
In January (10), a Los Angeles judge ruled the director must return to America to face sentencing.
Seigner is convinced the messy matter will be resolved and she hopes her husband will be freed soon - because her kids with Polanski need to spend more time with their father.
Explaining they visit Polanski frequently, the actress says, the whole saga has changed her dramatically: "I am no longer such a carefree person; I am no longer the same Emmanuelle.
