'Lethal Weapon' Star Hilarie Burton Says Ben Affleck Once Groped Her

11 October 2017

Both Affleck and BFF Matt Damon's statements that men need to "do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters" rang hollow considering allegations that Damon actively attempted to cover up Weinstein's abuse and now, a reminder that Affleck himself doesn't have the greatest track-record when it comes to respecting women's bodily autonomy. Unsurprisingly, when the A-lister DID finally address the controversy, he denounced Weinstein and seemingly implied that he was ignorant to Harvey's unsavory behavior.

Ben Affleck's reaction was also slammed by Rose McGowan, the actress who played the character of Paige Matthews in The WB supernatural drama series Charmed. "Everyone forgot though." Hilarie responded with "I didn't forget".

Burton spoke of the claims on Twitter in response to a fan who wrote: 'Ben Affleck should've just kept quiet.

However, Burton wasn't the only female star who was shocked by Affleck's remarks.

Affleck's publicist did not immediately respond to Burton's allegation. Later in the clip, Affleck says to her, "How old are you-19?"

In a tweet, she wrote that Ben had spoken to her about the abuse during a press conference: '@benaffleck "GODDAMNIT!"

Indians DH Encarnacion hopes to return for Game 5
Indians slugger Edwin Encarnacion might be back in Cleveland's lineup for Game 5 of the AL Division Series against the Yankees. The Indians tied it at 8-all on Jay Bruce's home run in the eighth inning and won it on Yan Gomes' RBI single in the 13th.

Burton confirmed that the incident did happen.

On Tuesday, Affleck, whose career got a boost after starring in films produced by Weinstein, broke his silence in a long Facebook post. "If there was ever an event that I was at and Harvey was doing this kind of thing and I didn't see it, then I am so deeply sorry, because I would have stopped it".

Hours after Affleck issued his statement saying, "I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others", McGowan tweeted at Affleck, alleging that he'd seemed aware of Weinstein's mistreatment of women.
