Italian actor and director Asia Argento is one of the three women who accuses Harvey Weinstein of rape in The New Yorker's harrowing report on his sexual misconduct and the company's coverups.

Argento had told her story once before, albeit with a different name. In 2000, Argento released the film Scarlet Diva which includes scenes inspired by her interactions with Weinstein. In 1997, at 21 years old, Argento arrived at the producer's hotel room under the pretext of a party, but nobody else was there. Weinstein allegedly exited the room and returned "wearing a bathrobe and holding a bottle of lotion," before demanding that she give him a massage and forcibly performing oral sex on her.

"The thing with being a victim is I felt responsible," Argento told The New Yorker. "Because if I were a strong woman, I would have kicked him in the balls and run away. But I didn’t. And so I felt responsible."
