New Polanski Petition Also Serves As List of People You Don’t Want Babysitting Your Kids

French philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy is calling for film directors at Cannes to sign a petition in support of convicted child rapist Roman Polanski. The petition’s first signatories, below, doubles as list of folks who may not have the strongest grasp of responsible childcare:

Jean-Luc Godard
Mathieu Amalric
Xavier Beauvois
Agnès Varda
Bertrand Tavernier
Olivier Assayas
Jean-Stéphane Bron
Patricio Guzman
Jean Paul Civeyrac
Katell Quillévéré

Not surprisingly, Woody Allen has indicated that he too will sign the petition, but he’s probably not been anyone’s first choice as a babysitter for some time.
