Rose McGowan feels ''sick to her stomach'' following the allegations of sexual assault against her friend Asia Argento.

The 44-year-old actress got to know Asia last year after the pair both came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

But following allegations made by former child actor Jimmy Bennett that Asia sexually assaulted him in a hotel room when he was 17, Rose has said she feels ''betrayed'' by the 42-year-old actress.

When asked if she feels ''betrayed'' by Asia during an interview on 'Good Morning Britain' on Tuesday (04.09.18), the former 'Charmed' star said: ''It doesn't really matter, my feelings in the face of Jimmy Bennett's feelings are very insignificant. Personally, it's been a hard year with a lot of betrayals. These last four years has been betrayals from every side, but this really isn't about me.

''It is a horrible situation, I fundamentally do not understand people that are attracted to young people, of any sexual orientation ... But there will be due process. And my heart's racing, it makes me sick to my stomach, it hurts me deeply. But I believe the good part of it is that we're realising boys get hurt too.''

The claims made against Asia were first reported by The New York Times, which claimed that in the months following her allegations against Weinstein, she reached a financial settlement with Jimmy Bennett, who played her son in 2004's 'The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things'.

Jimmy, now 22, claimed that in 2013, Asia sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room two months after he turned 17.

The New York Times reported that Jimmy's attorney Gordon K. Sattro had told them that Jimmy's ''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.''
