Asia Argento tears Weinstein to shreds at historic Cannes film festival
Italian actress Asia Argento delivered a fierce discourse against Harvey Weinstein during the closing ceremony of the Cannes film festival last Saturday night.
Argento not only blasted Weinstein and practically cursed him from ever being accepted on the festival, but also denounced there are still predators in the industry, and sent a warning to all offenders, assuring they will no longer be able to get away with their crimes.
The veteran Italian actress, daughter of the lauded film director Dario Argento, made headlines last year when she was one of many women who came forward in the 2017 New Yorker expose that prompted the flurry of allegations against Weinstein.
Argento’s fiery discourse might come as a response to the producer’s recent statements when he told Piers Morgan in an interview that he believed that in time, the industry would ultimately welcome him back.
