Roman Polanski isn’t necessarily a fan of birth control, complaining during a press conference in Cannes for his new film, “Venus in Fur,” that the Pill has had a “masculinizing” effect on women. The 79-year-old director says the Pill has “changed the place of women in our times.” He also gripes that moves toward gender equality are having a negative impact on chivalry, noting that “offering flowers to a lady” has now become “indecent.” Polanski’s wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, stars in “Venus in Fur” as an actress dominating her director during the production of a play.
