Asia Argento accuses Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault: Who is she?

Asia Argento accuses Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault: Who is she?”

How is she connected to Harvey Weinstein? A ten-month long investigation and eventual publication in The New Yorker Magazine has uncovered decades of sexual molestation and rape of under-aged women.

Argento said there's one major difference in the movie versus her real life experience.

After that nightmarish encounter, Argento refused to let Weinstein win, and instead she channeled her anger and frustration into boxing, a pal says, adding, and now her toned body and lethal right hand are put to good use in boxing competitions in and around her homeland of Italy. "They make a great pair", the source said "She's always getting her frustrations out in the ring and he trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu every day". "But I didn't. And so I felt responsible". "After the rape, he won". The Italian actress, who was 21 when she was invited to Weinstein's hotel room under the pretext of an invitation to a party in 1997, claimed that he asked her to give him a massage, forced her legs apart, and performed oral sex on her as she repeatedly told him to stop. The incident prompted her then-boyfriend, Brad Pitt, to angrily confront Weinstein at a film premiere. Afterward, the actress told the magazine, "He made things very hard for me for years". Argento said she feared that Weinstein would ruin her career if she did comply with him. The tape was handed over to the District Attorney in Manhattan.

Actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have also accused Weinstein of sexual harassment when they were younger.

Argento said in The New Yorker story that after the movie was released, other women recognized that the producer character was a portrayal of Weinstein. About 13 women were interviewed for the article and recounted his behavior.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein denied the rape allegations in a statement provided to CNN.

The New Yorker quoted Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister responding that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances". The recording, part of which can be heard at The New Yorker, includes Weinstein pressing Gutierrez to join him in his hotel room as Gutierrez clearly protests, saying "I want to leave" and "I don't want to".

She has two children and was formerly married to filmmaker Michele Civetta.
