Italian actress Asia Argento says her alleged sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein ‘smashed all my dreams’ and ‘changed the perception I had of myself.’ Argento alleged in an interview published in The New Yorker magazine last week that Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her at a hotel in France two decades ago.

Multiple women have made allegations against Weinstein. The 42-year-old actress told Italy’s RAI state television on Tuesday she feels ‘doubly crucified’ since going public: first by the sexual assault and now by hostile reactions to her story in Italy.

Italian newspaper Libero ran a scathing piece under the headline, “First they put out, and then they whine.” A former parliament member said Argento should have just said ‘no.’
