Film director Roman Polanski married movie star Sharon Tate in London on January 20, 1968. Sharon Tate would be murdered by the Manson Family a year and a half later. Polanski was arrested for statutory rape in 1977. He fled to Europe to avoid sentencing and hasn't been back to the U.S. since. Just for a moment though, let's put all that unpleasantness aside and marvel at the fact that we now know exactly who the character Austin Powers was based upon. -via Everlasting Blort
