Asia Argento has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in an interview with the New Yorker.
The Italian star claims that in 1997 she was at a party hosted by Miramax at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc when Weinstein led to her an empty room and asked her to give him a massage.
She reluctantly agreed, and halfway through he began to perform oral sex on her despite her repeated request for him to stop.
In the same article, both Rosanna Arquette and Mira Sorvino state that the powerful Hollywood executive forced himself upon them, but that they were able to fight off his sexual advances.
Soon after, the two women say their careers began to suffer.
Argento says that she became suspicious soon after she arrived in the empty hotel room but was assured that people would soon be arriving by Weinstein.
Then, he emerged from the bathroom in a robe and holding a bottle of lotion says the actress, who was just 21 at the time.
‘He asks me to give a massage. I was, like, “Look man, I am no fucking fool,”‘ said Argento.
‘But, looking back, I am a fucking fool. And I am still trying to come to grips with what happened.’
