Actress Asia Argento Denies Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old Boy

Actress and #MeToo champion Asia Argento is fighting back against allegations that she sexually assaulted a 17-year-old boy and paid him off to keep it quiet. On Monday, The New York Times reported Argento was accused of plying former child actor Jimmy Bennett with alcohol and having sex with him at Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina Del Rey, California, in 2013. The Italian actress met Bennett 10 years earlier when they appeared together in a movie when he was just 7 years old.
