Rose McGowan Distances Herself From Asia Argento After Sexual Assault Accusation
Rose McGowan on Monday responded to the New York Times report that actress Asia Argento — a fellow Harvey Weinstein accuser — had herself paid a young actor $380,000 following an accusation of sexual misconduct.

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

In a later tweet, she added, “None of us know the truth of the situation and I’m sure more will be revealed. Be gentle.”

Rose McGowan on Asia Argento Accusation: ‘My Heart Is Broken’
Rose McGowan has moved to distance herself from director-actress Asia Argento following the revelation Sunday night that Argento herself has been accused of sexual assault.

McGowan and Argento have been among the most prominent women to come forward with allegations of rape against now-disgraced film titan Harvey Weinstein, who is facing criminal charges in New York unrelated to McGowan or Argento.

McGowan has become a vocal activist on behalf of sexual assault victims. In a tweet sent early Monday, the former “Charmed” star said she her “heart is broken” by the New York Times’ expose published Sunday that Argento reached a $380,000 settlement with actor-musician Jimmy Bennett, who claims Argento sexually assaulted him in a hotel room when he was 17.

“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,

Tessa Thompson Explains Her Connection to Janelle Monáe
"I currently don't have time to date," actress Tessa Thompson says in The Cut's first-ever print issue, available on newsstands now.

Asia Argento Settled a Sexual Assault Case Filed Against Her by an Underage Actor — Report
Asia Argento, a leading voice in the #MeToo movement and one of many women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, settled a sexual-assault accusation made against her by former child musician and actor Jimmy Bennett last year, according to the New York Times. Bennett was 17 years old in 2013, when he alleges the incident took place; Argento was 37. He claims the assault took place in a hotel room in California, where the age of consent is 18.

Bennett originally intended to sue Argento for $3.5 million for assault and battery, lost wages, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. The case was settled for $380,000.

According to the Times, Carrie Goldberg, Argento’s attorney in the case, wrote to her client that “we hope nothing like this ever happens to you again. You are a powerful and inspiring creator and it is a miserable condition of life that you live among s
