Nastassja Kinski is a German, Golden Globe Award-winning actress who has appeared in more than sixty movies in Europe and the United States. The following comments are about her relationship as a teenager with movie director Roman Polanski.

I fell in love with him at the beginning. He was really a gentleman, not at all like the things I had heard. He introduced me to beautiful books, plays, movies. He educated me.

It was just a romance. I fell out of love with Roman after a while because something bigger grew—a real understanding. He’s like from my family.
