His lawyer Gordon K. Sattro said in the intent to sue, "His feelings about that day were brought to the forefront recently when Ms. Argento took the spotlight as one of the many victims of Harvey Weinstein".

Bennet, now 22, played Argento's son in a 2014 movie called The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things. The New York Times report did not state that Argento admitted any wrongdoing. "We are not going to allow you to get away with it".
