Asia Argento is so brave!
The Italian actress and director described the “nightmare” of being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein to Ronan Farrow for The New Yorker‘s expos├â┬⌐ on the producer. She claims he forcibly performed oral sex on her despite repeatedly asking him to stop.
In the same article, Asia even revealed she based a scene off the incident for her 2000 film Scarlet Diva, one in which a producer asks her for a massage before assaulting her.
Recounting talking with Harvey after he saw the movie, she remembered him saying:
“Ha, ha, very funny.”
And also that he was very “sorry for whatever happened.”
She shared a clip of it Twitter, but you can also watch the disturbing scene (below). We’re warning you, it can be triggering for some.
And for the entirety of the scene:
Asia’s boyfriend Anthony Bourdain has also spoken out about the scene, adding:
