Published Jan 25, 2021Asia Argento was one of the first-ever people to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, and she's since been in the media multiple times regarding sexual misconduct. She has now shared yet another story, accusing The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen of sexually assaulting her.
Speaking with the Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera [via The Hollywood Reporter], Argento accused Cohen of sexually assaulting her while she was filming his 2002 movie xXx, where she starred opposite Vin Diesel.
"It's the first time I'm talking about Cohen," Argento said. "He abused me by making me drink GHB [commonly called the date rape drug], he had a bottle of it. At the time, I honestly didn't know what it was. I woke up in the morning naked in his bed."
Argento added that her allegations will be detailed further in her book Anatomy of a Wild Heart, which arrives in Italy this week.
Cohen has not yet responded to Argento's claim, but he has responded to sexual assault accusations in the past. In 2019, the Huffington Post published a story from an alleged victim who claimed she was assaulted while unconscious at a business meeting with Cohen in 2015. That same year, his eldest child Valkyrie Weather accused Cohen of assaulting her when she was a child. Cohen vehemently denied both claims.
