Amanda Knox has criticised actor Matt Damon and director Tom McCarthy for profiting from her wrongful murder conviction in McCarthy’s new film, Stillwater.
Knox was jailed in Italy for four years for the murder of a British student before she was later acquitted.
The 34-year-old and her former boyfriend were twice convicted of the 2007 killing of Ms Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy but were later exonerated in 2015.
McCarthy has said Ms Knox’s case helped inspire his new movie’s storyline.
In a lengthy blog post, Ms Knox said neither Damon nor McCarthy tried to speak to her while they made the film.
