La7 ROME—In theory, Jimmy Bennett could not have chosen a better Italian journalist to unload his side of the Asia Argento story. Massimo Gilletti, a sort of Italian Anderson Cooper with a keen news sense and suave sense of style, reached out to Bennett when the news first broke that the Italian #MeToo founder Asia Argento had paid off Bennett after the two had sexual relations when he was just 17.

Comedians Merrill Markoe and Megan Koester wrote and recorded "Indignities" for Audible. The book charts the... [Read More]

Gutierrez gave Judd a month to amend and attempt to revive that section of the lawsuit, which her lawyer Theodore J. Boutrous Jr. says they intend to do. The... [Read More]
