Italian actor Asia Argento is among the leading activists of the #MeToo movement against sexual abuse in Hollywood. She was one of the first women to publicly accuse film producer Harvey Weinstein of abuse.

意大利演员艾莎·阿基多(Asia Argento)是好莱坞反性侵的MeToo运动的主要活动家。她是第一批公开指控电影制片人哈维·韦恩斯坦(Harvey Weinstein)性侵的女性之一。

The New York Times reports that Argento recently reached a financial settlement with the accuser, Jimmy Bennett.

据《纽约时报》报道,阿基多最近与原告吉米·本内特(Jimmy Bennett)达成了经济补偿协议。

Bennett, who is 22, reportedly had filed documents describing the claim of assault and his plan to sue Argento.

据报道,22岁的本内特提交了文件,上面列出了对阿基多的性侵索赔要求以及他的上诉计划。

Bennet says Argento had sex with him in a California hotel in 2013. He had just turned 17 years old. Argento was 37 at the time. The age of sexual consent in California is 18.

本内特表示,阿基多于2013年在加州一家酒店同他发生了关系。当时他刚满17岁,阿基多37岁。加州发生性关系的合法年龄为18岁。

The documents say the experience harmed Bennett mentally and hurt his career, the Times reported.

据《泰晤士报》报道,文件称这种经历给本内特造成了精神伤害,并给他的职业生涯造成了不良影响。

The New York Times says it received court documents that included a picture of Argento and Bennett in bed together. Three people close to the case said the documents were real, the Times reported.

《纽约时报》称它收到了法庭文件,其中包括一张阿基多和本内特一起躺在床上的照片。据《纽约时报》报道,有3位接近此案的人士称这些文件是真实的。

Argento reportedly agreed to pay Bennett $380,000.

据报道阿基多同意向本内特赔偿38万美元。

Argento and Bennett co-starred in a 2004 film called "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things." In the movie, Argento played a sex worker who was Bennett's mother.

阿基多同本内特一同出演了2004年电影《巧克力猫王》。在这部影片中,阿基多扮演一位性工作者,也是本内特的母亲。

Argento is one of the best-known activists of the #MeToo movement. Last year, she told the New Yorker magazine that Weinstein raped her at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 when she was 21 years old.

阿基多是MeToo运动中最知名的活动家之一。去年,她对《纽约客》杂志表示,韦恩斯坦1997年在戛纳电影节上强奸了她,当时她21岁。

Argento told the magazine that she continued to have a relationship with Weinstein because she was afraid of angering him.

阿基多对该杂志表示,她继续同韦恩斯坦保持着关系,因为她担心会激怒他。

Weinstein has been charged with sex crimes against three women. Argento is not one of them.
