Lars von Trier questioned by police about Nazi-Hitler comments

HollywoodNews.com: “Melancholia” director Lars von Trier just had his pr firm send out this statement regarding his Hitler and Nazi comments from last May’s Cannes Film Festival. Apparently he was questioned by police in Denmark–that’s where North Zealand is. So even at home he’s in trouble from staying stupid and reckless things at that press conference.

“Today at 2 pm I was questioned by the Police of North Zealand in connection with charges made by the prosecution of Grasse in France from August 2011 regarding a possible violation of prohibition in French law against justification of war crimes. The investigation covers comments made during the press conference in Cannes in May 2011. Due to these serious accusations I have realized that I do not possess the skills to express myself unequivocally and I have therefore decided from this day forth to refrain from all public statements and interviews.

Avedøre, 5. October 2011″

He told GQ magazine in their October issue: “To say I’m sorry for what I said is to say I’m sorry for what kind of a person I am, I’m sorry for my morals, and that would destroy me as a person. It’s not true. I’m not sorry. I am not sorry for what I said. I’m sorry that it didn’t come out more clearly. I’m not sorry that I made a joke, but I’m sorry that I didn’t make it clear that it was a joke. But I can’t be sorry for what I said — it’s against my nature.”
