ROME — Italian actress Asia Argento says being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein "smashed all my dreams" and "changed the perception I had of myself."

Argento said in an interview published in The New Yorker magazine last week that Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her at a hotel in France two decades ago.

Multiple women have made allegations against the producer.

The 42-year-old actress told Italy's RAI state television on Tuesday she feels "doubly crucified" since going public: first by the assault and now by hostile reactions to her story in Italy.

Italian newspaper Libero ran a scathing piece under the headline, "First they put out, and then they whine." A former parliament member said Argento should have just said "no."

Comments on social media accused Argento of seeking trouble.
