    Mira Sorvino, one of the women who spearheaded the #MeToo
    Movement, has spoken out about the recent allegation that
    Italian actress Asia Argento sexually assaulted a young male
    actor and secretly paid him off.

    On Wednesday morning, Sorvino, one of the dozens of women to
    accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, took to Twitter to
    express her reaction to the Argento news after returning from
    "several weeks abroad."

    "I have been heartsick over the recent allegations against Asia
    Argento. Time will clarify things and perhaps she will be
    exonerated, but if true, there is no lens that makes it better,"
    Sorvino's statement read. "Child sexual assault is a heinous
    crime and is against all that I and the #MeToo movement stands
    for. I remain dedicated in the fight for all victims and change
    the culture that encourages the abuse of power in sexual

    She added that she hopes "it is not true."

    On Sunday, The New York Times published an article claiming that
    Argento had set up a sexual encounter with 17-year-old actor,
    Jimmy Bennet, back in 2013. A relationship between the 37-year-
    old actress and the young actor would be considered illegal in
    the state of California where the age of consent for the state
    is 18.

    The article went on to claim that Argento paid Bennett $380,000
    after his lawyers threatened to sue the actress for sexual
    assault. The paper also obtained a photograph dated May 9, 2013
    that showed the two lying in a bed together.

    Having just touched down from several weeks abroad, I am
    reeling from the recent news. Although hoping against hope that
    it is not true, here are my current thoughts:

    Since the news of the scandal broke, Argento, who like Sorvino,
    was one of the first women to speak out about her sexual assault
    experience with Weinstein, denied the claims in a statement
    released on Tuesday.

    In the statement, the actress said that she was linked to
    Bennett by “friendship only” which ended when he made “an
    exorbitant request of money” amid financial problems. Argento
    said her then-boyfriend, late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain,
    decided to pay Bennett.

    “Antony [sic] insisted the matter be handled privately and this
    was also what Bennett wanted. Anthony was afraid of the possible
    negative publicity that such person, whom he considered
    dangerous, could have brought upon us,” she said. “We decided to
    deal compassionately with Bennett’s demand for help and give it
    to him. Anthony personally undertook to help Bennett
    economically, upon the condition that we would no longer suffer
    any further intrusions in our life.”

    Despite denying she engaged in a sexual relationship with the 17-
    year-old actor, TMZ obtained texts and screenshots that showed
    Argento appearing to admit to a friend that she and Bennet did
    have sex.
