Mistress Asia

Asia Argento's exotic look is certainly what makes her so appealing to audiences, but the same attribute is also what has kept her on the sidelines in films like xXx (yikes) and Marie Antoinette. She's earned plenty of indie cred. with movies like Gus Van Sant's Last Days and the infamous JT LeRoy account The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things, which she herself wrote and directed. Yet none of those titles have managed to give the rebellious beauty the kind of attention she seems to deserve.

This month, Asia stars in her father, the great Dario Argento's horror-thriller Mother of Tears, and coming soon, she'll play the sex-crazed lover of a libertine in the lush French period piece The Last Mistress. Given the early buzz, Mistress may finally earn the sexy starlet her much sought after spotlight. Here's the trailer:
