Filmmaker Luc Besson has been accused of rape by a 27-year-old actress who has chosen to remain anonymous reports Deadline.
The actress has reported the incident to the police on May 18th after she claims the director abused her at the Bristol, a hotel near the Champs-Elysees. Europe 1 first picked up the story.
The actress has reportedly known the “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” director for years and says she does not remember everything from the evening but claims that Besson left her cash.
The French police have yet to confirm that a report was filed. The report comes as Asia Argento spoke a few hours ago at the Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony where she said: “I was raped by Harvey Weinstein in Cannes in 1997. I was 21-years-old. This festival was his hunting ground. I’m going to make a prediction: Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here again. He will never disgrace the community that once embraced him and covered up for his crimes.”
