Actress and director Asia Argento has accused the director of The Fast and the Furious and xXx, Rob Cohen, of sexual assault

She told the Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera that Cohen abused her and made her drink GHB, a drug that has been linked to sexual assault

“I really didn’t know at the time what it was that I woke up naked in his bed in the morning,” Argento told the Italian publication

The allegations are also featured in Argento’s autobiography Anatomy of a Wild Heart, which was released on Jan. January is released in their Italian homeland

The statement from Cohen’s spokesman described the couple as “having an excellent working relationship and Mr. Cohen considers them a friend, so this 2002 claim is confusing”

Argento was one of the first to accuse convicted rapist and disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of the assault in a 2017 interview in The New Yorker with Ronan Farrow
