    Italian actor Asia Argento is among the leading activists of the #MeToo movement against sexual abuse in Hollywood. She was one of the first women to publicly accuse film producer Harvey Weinstein of abuse.
    意大利演员艾莎·阿基多(Asia Argento)是好莱坞反性侵的MeToo运动的主要活动家。她是第一批公开指控电影制片人哈维·韦恩斯坦(Harvey Weinstein)性侵的女性之一。

    Now, a young actor and musician says Argento sexually assaulted him.

    The New York Times reports that Argento recently reached a financial settlement with the accuser, Jimmy Bennett.
    据《纽约时报》报道,阿基多最近与原告吉米·本内特(Jimmy Bennett)达成了经济补偿协议。

    Bennett, who is 22, reportedly had filed documents describing the claim of assault and his plan to sue Argento.

    Bennet says Argento had sex with him in a California hotel in 2013. He had just turned 17 years old. Argento was 37 at the time. The age of sexual consent in California is 18.

    The documents say the experience harmed Bennett mentally and hurt his career, the Times reported.

    The New York Times says it received court documents that included a picture of Argento and Bennett in bed together. Three people close to the case said the documents were real, the Times reported.

    Argento reportedly agreed to pay Bennett $380,000.

    Argento and Bennett co-starred in a 2004 film called "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things." In the movie, Argento played a sex worker who was Bennett's mother.

    Argento is one of the best-known activists of the #MeToo movement. Last year, she told the New Yorker magazine that Weinstein raped her at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 when she was 21 years old.

    Argento told the magazine that she continued to have a relationship with Weinstein because she was afraid of angering him.

    Weinstein has been charged with sex crimes against three women. Argento is not one of them.
