Asia Argento has accused The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen of assault.
The actress told Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera that Rob Cohen abused her and made her drink GHB, a drug associated with sex attacks.
A spokesperson for Rob Cohen called the actress’ claim “categorically false” and “bewildering”.
Asia Argento alleges the assault occurred while filming action movie xXx in 2002.
“At the time, I really didn’t know what it was. I woke up in the morning naked in his bed,” she told the Italian publication.
The accusations are also included in Asia Argento’s autobiography Anatomy of a Wild Heart, which will be published in her native Italy on January 26.
The statement issued by Rob Cohen’s spokesperson described the pair as having “an excellent working relationship and Mr. Cohen considered her a friend, so this claim dating back to 2002 is bewildering”.
Asia Argento was one of the first to accuse convicted Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of assault in an interview in the New Yorker with Ronan Farrow back in 2017.
