Roger Moore owned the Beverly Hills Post Office Spanish hacienda in the '80s and '90s, then Candice Bergen bought it, and now the new owner is Cameron Diaz.

Instead of a jail cell, Polanski now has free run of his three-story villa here in Gstaad. Instead of fellow inmates, the people around him include his wife and their two children.

Nichols said provided explosives used in the blast denied Wednesday that he had any role, and said the attempt to link him to the plot fit Nichols' demeanor as someone who "hated everybody."
