Speaking to Italian TV La7, Argento talked about watching Bennett confirm the abuse allegations last week, in an interview he gave to the same broadcaster.

The 22-year-old actor gave his account on September 24 on Italian TV, saying, "It turned into her placing her hands on me and following that was when she pushed me onto the bed and took my trousers off".

But Argento, who was 37 at the time of the alleged incident, denies Bennett's account of events and said: "He started kissing me and touching me, but not as a mother and child as I saw him, but as a boy with raging hormones". "In fact, I had misunderstood the messages that Asia exchanged with my partner Rain Dove, which made clear that Jimmy had sent Asia inappropriate text messages only after they met up again when he was 17 (still legally a minor in California, but notably different from a 12 year old)".

"He literally jumped on me (...) He was on me, and he came. For him, I was a hunting trophy", she said.

But this winter the young actor asked for $3.5 million to keep quiet.

"He undressed me, put me sideways on the bed, climbed onto me and had complete sex without even using a condom", Argento told the host.

She said she did not break ties with Bennett because he was "troubled".

After Bourdain's suicide in June, Argento apparently stopped the payments.

The daughter of "Suspiria" director Dario Argento, she became a powerful voice for the #MeToo movement after accusing Weinstein of raping her when she was 21 in his hotel room in 1997 during the Cannes film festival.
