Asia Argento is in deep doo-doo

Argento complained that Weinstein was preying on her weaknesses, but the same Argento was preying on teenagers’ weaknesses. As the New York Times itself declares, “The fallout from ‘a sexual battery’ was so traumatic that it hindered Mr. Bennett’s work and income and threatened his mental health.”

Asia Argento essentially kills the #MeToo movement. The powerhouse actress was one of the first women to come forward and accuse Harvey Weinstein of rape and sexual assault. Argento was also one of the first individuals to take the #MeToo movement to a new height.

Yet in 2013 Argento herself sexually assaulted a 17-year-old actor and musician by the name of Jimmy Bennett in a California hotel. This latest news inexorably proves that Harvey Weinstein was not the only guy in Hollywood who was pimping the system. He just happened to be the one who caught red-handed. As the New York Times itself puts it:

“Argento quietly arranged to pay $380,000 to her own accuser: Jimmy Bennett, a young actor and rock musician who said she had sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room years earlier, when he was only two months past his 17th birthday. She was 37. The age of consent in California is 18.

“That claim and the subsequent arrangement for payments are laid out in documents between lawyers for Argento and Bennett, a former child actor who once played her son in a movie.”[1]

Argento actually gave Bennett “alcohol to drink and showed him a series of notes she had written to him on hotel stationery. Then she kissed him, pushed him back on the bed, removed his pants and performed oral sex.”[2]

Bennett was 7 years old when he was cast in one of Argento’s movie, The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things. Argento is also the figure behind the “masochistic” movie Scarlet Diva, which is also “a semi-autobiographical film.” The movie is mainly about drugs, sex, and what Jim Morrison would have called “the road of excess.”

Argento complained that Weinstein was preying on her weaknesses, but the same Argento was preying on teenagers’ weaknesses. As the New York Times itself declares, “The fallout from ‘a sexual battery’ was so traumatic that it hindered Mr. Bennett’s work and income and threatened his mental health.”[3]

What started Bennett’s quest for justice was when Argento began to be viewed by the #MeToo movement and much of the media as a conspicuous voice against sexual assault. “For Mr. Bennett, seeing Ms. Argento present herself as a victim of sexual assault was too much to bear…and called up memories of their hotel reunion.”[4]

Now Argento’s lawyer is calling people like Bennett “shitty individuals who’ve preyed on”[5] the “strengths and weaknesses” of celebrities like Argento! Rose McGowan twitted:

I got to know Asia Argento ten months ago. Our commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. My heart is broken. I will continue my work on behalf of victims everywhere.”

Will she work on behalf of Bennett? In that sense, will she publicly denounce Argento as a hypocrite? If she cannot do that, then wouldn’t she implicitly be saying that the #MeToo movement is inherently contradictory?

  1. Yeah, Jonas wrote a rotten article with a ludicrous premise. There is a lot that could be usefully said about the metoo movement and Hollywood’s seamier side, but this is just pointless trash.

  2. Ian, don’t You think this case is a clear set up, similar as MSM loved Antifa thugs prior Charlottesville and after the riots and several bans MSM turned it’s back on Antifa.

  3. No, it hasn’t, it’s a dumb idea to think it has, that kid jut wanted to bilk the woman out of as much cash as he could, taking advantage of being a few months underage. It’s very far from being comparable to the type of abuse practised in Hollywood by perverts like Weinstein. I think it just shows that Argento had a less than good upbringing, which doesn’t surprise me, her father Dario was a director who made some very strange psycho-sexual horror movies.

  4. The US has to deal with these questions, and while thousands of abuser priests are floating off to retirement said for by US taxes, the media naturally loves that Argento is caught doing this. In fairness, I think what she did was wrong, because of her position, but 17 year old males do not often report sexual liaisons with older women as abuse, but rather a victory to be recorded in the coming of age.
    This just happened to come out as the Church faces the call for Bishops and Cardinals to step down, and as many states are openly discussing more Grand Juries, and racketeering investigations.
    This is not going to kill the metoo movement, as it has decidedly begun to focus on Tax Payer funded sex abuse by clergy.

    • The current Catholic spin, even by Catholics who are calling for Bishops heads, is that it is not pedophilia, because the boys were post puberty , at least most were they say. The problem with this is, they cannot count the tens of thousands of non-reported cases. But, somehow they are going to spin it, as partly the fault of the victims, as they have always done.
      But ok, let’s keep score. Hollywood 1 victim, front page of everything, maximum damage.
      Catholicism – 10,000. back page or not at all, minimize damage , blame victims.
      Funding sources, Hollywood- Private. Catholicism – US taxpayers
      Tax the churches fully. Every building, piece of land, donations, salaries, and audit the Parishes. All of it.

    • JL,- the Vatican is not funded by Israel. it is the other way around. The Jewish God does not get born in a manger without Debt. You are the source of funding, and support.

  5. The way she looks “force” would be the only things that would work for her to get what SHE WANTS. Looks like a Vampire.
