But Was it "Rape" Rape?

Probably. But I guess we won't be certain until "rape" rape Whoopie Goldberg rules. Fourth woman comes forward to accuse director Roman Polanski of rape
A fourth woman has come forward to accuse beleaguered director Roman Polanski of sexual assault.

Renate Langer, 61, a German former actress, told Swiss police that the "Chinatown" filmmaker raped her at his mountain chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland, when she was 15 years old, according to the Associated Press. The model had traveled there because the director indicated he was interested in casting her in a movie, she said. (She would later appear in his film “Che?”)

In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, Langer said she's bringing the claim against the 84-year-old "Rosemary's Baby" director now because she believes the statute of limitations, which Switzerland has eliminated in child sex abuse cases, would allow her complaint to be investigated. She said she waited to report the incident, which allegedly took place in February 1972, largely out of concern for her parents, who died recently.

"My mother would have had a heart attack," Langer told the newspaper. "I felt ashamed and embarrassed and lost and solo."
Tanslated from German Wikipedia: Renate Langer (born May 20, 1956 in Munich ) is a former German actress and a photo model .
During her school term, Renate Langer was discovered as a photomodel at the Willi-Graf-Gymnasium in Munich, where she earned her middle maturity. A first small feature film role had she under the name Renee Langer in Roman Polańskis comedy What? , then she was often seen in teenage films, including as a temporary partner of Thomas Ohrner in A fat dog . She took private acting, language and singing lessons, turned numerous commercials and worked in synchronization.

In the 1980s she was portrayed in magazines such as Playboy , High Society , Superstar , Pleasure and Sexy . A small supporting role in Robert van Ackerens The Venusfalle was her last film management ever. In addition, she had small roles in TV series like Das Traumschiff , Kir Royal , Schwarzwaldklinik and SOKO 5113 .

In September 2017, Langer presented Roman Polański to the Swiss police. He had raped her in 1972, when she had applied for a film role in Gstaad . Later, he apologized for her and a small role in his film What? offered to them. 
The United States is still trying to extradite him for his first rape:
In March 1977, film director Roman Polanski was arrested and charged in Los Angeles with five offenses against Samantha Gailey, a 13-year-old girl – rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor. At his arraignment Polanski pleaded not guilty to all charges, but later accepted a plea bargain whose terms included dismissal of the five initial charges in exchange for a guilty plea to the lesser charge of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse.

Polanski underwent a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation, and a report was submitted to the court recommending probation. However, upon learning that he was likely to face imprisonment and deportation, Polanski fled to France in February 1978, hours before he was to be formally sentenced. Since then Polanski has mostly lived in France and has avoided visiting countries likely to extradite him to the United States.
