In an interview with DailyMailTV, Asia’s first since the death of her late boyfriend, Anthony Bourdain, as well as the sexual misconduct allegations against her, the actress revealed what it was like to struggle with the passing of her partner.
According to the Hollywood star, she felt “anger” after she found out about his death. Anthony’s friend found him dead in the bathroom of his hotel room in France, back in June.
While brushing away tears off her face, Asia said, “the anger has kept me alive.” Asia, who has two children from prior relationships, stated she was angry with Anthony for “abandoning my kids.”

Since his passing in the summertime, Argento has learned to let it go. However, now, the anger phase is over, and it feels like there is something missing from her life, a hole she can’t fill.
This comes after CNN premiered the first episodes from Anthony’s show, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. The very first installment of the series featured Anthony saying how he lucky he felt to be in Kenya.
Asia is supposed to talk about the sexual assault allegations against her made by the actor Jimmy Bennett, who accused her of assaulting him in 2013 when he was a 17-year-old – illegal under California law.
In the midst of the #MeToo movement, Asia, through Anthony, paid Jimmy $380,000 for his silence. At the time, Asia was accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape, and the allegations against the XXX star would’ve been devastating for her case.
Later on, Argento and her friend and former comrade, Rose McGowan, had a falling out over social media. The Italian-native threatened to sue Rose for “horrendous lies,” following McGowan’s statement released on the 27th of August.
Additionally, on Sunday, Bennett answered a series of questions from an Italian journalist about his story. Jimmy said Asia “start(ed) the whole thing,” and she pushed him on to the bed, and “took my pants off.”
