Italian Actress Claims Harvey Weinstein Raped Her

Asia Argento has bravely opened up about the "nightmare" experience of being sexually abused by the movie mogul.

Harvey Weinstein was sacked earlier this week from Miramax, the independent film studio that he founded, after a string of sexual assault allegations came to light.

And now Asia Argento, who's best known for her role in 'xXx', has stepped forward to claim in horrifying graphic detail that she was raped by him at a "party" back in 1997.

Asia took to Twitter last night to tell how she had been invited to a supposed Miramax party, but once there she quickly discovered that only Harvey Weinstein was there all alone.

He demanded that she give him a back rub and then forcibly performed oral sex on her. "He was so big. It wouldn’t stop. It was a nightmare. I was not willing," she bravely recalled in an interview published last night in the New Yorker magazine.

"I said, ‘No, no, no!’ It’s twisted. A scary fairytale."

However, the actress said that she eventually went on to willingly have sex on different occasions with Weinstein. "After the rape, he won," she said.

Last night Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow both decided to come forward to tell how Weinstein tried to force himself on them too.

“This behaviour towards women in any field, any country, is unacceptable," said Jolie of the "bad experience" of suffering an "unwanted advance" from the Hollywood producer.

Earlier in this week, both Rosanna Arquette and Mira Sorvino also said that Weinstein had tried to force himself upon them but that they were also, just like Paltrow and Jolie, able to fight off his unwanted sexual advances.

Last night Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman left him, saying her "heart breaks for his victims".

She had previously vowed to stand by her man, but changed her mind after many more women bravely decided to tell their stories about allegedly being sexual harassed, assaulted and even raped by him.

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband," she told People magazine.

"Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time."

It's understood that Weinstein has now jetted out to Europe to check himself into rehab to deal with his sex addiction.
