Emmanuelle Seigner, the actress and singer who has been married to filmmaker Roman Polanski since 1989, is calling out on Quentin Tarantino over Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The film, which is Tarantino’s ode to Hollywood in 1969, the year of the Manson Family murders also has actors playing Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and Polanski (Rafał Zawierucha), who were married and was expecting their first child when Tate was mercilessly murdered by followers of Charles Manson. In a recent Instagram post, Seigner wrote, she thought it was in bad taste for Tarantino to essay Polanski in the film without reportedly consulting him.

She has shared the caption beneath an old photo of Tate and Polanski together. Seigner has further explained that she wasn’t criticizing the film.Polanski has been out of Hollywood’s limelight since 1977, when he had pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. He then fled the U.S. after serving 42 days, and has stayed out of the country since then. Before the scandal hit, Polanski was a widely respected director. He was married to Tate, a rising star, and was helming classics like Rosemary’s Baby and after Tate’s death, Chinatown. His reputation changed dramatically after the events of 1977, when he was excluded from Hollywood.

He wasn’t completely kicked out of the industry. Polanski continued making films overseas and in 2003, he was awarded a best-director Oscar for The Pianist. In the light of #MeToo movement, the tide turned recently on Polanski, with the Academy voting to boot him out of its ranks, a decision Polanski is fighting against.
