Asia Argento wept as she told Daily Mail TV that her boyfriend Anthony Bourdain’s suicide left a “hole that cannot be filled.”
“Now, the anger kept me alive because otherwise this desperation has no end, there’s no end,” the 43-year-old Italian Actress shared in a piece that will air Monday with DailyMail TV as she wiped away tears. (RELATED: #MeToo Leader Allegedly Paid Off A Man She Sexually Assaulted)
“So, and then I was angry, yes, for abandoning me, my kids,” she added. “But now it’s been replaced, just by this loss. This hole that cannot be filled by anything.”
Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in Paris in June. The two had been dating for two years.

The actress’ interview was her first following the report that she had agreed to pay $380,000 to young actor Jimmy Bennett — something that was reportedly arranged by Bourdain — in return for him not suing her over allegedly sexually assaulting him when he was 17. She was 37 at the time.
Daily Mail TV says Argento addresses the incident in the interview airing Tuesday.
The payment was allegedly in hopes of protecting the actress and Bourdain from any type of “potential scandal.”
Argento has been one of leaders of the #MeToo movement since she accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of allegedly forcing her to perform oral sex on him back in 1997.
