Hilarie Burton Says Ben Affleck Groped Her on 'TRL'

HIlarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

When a Twitter user called out Ben, reminding him of this, Burton was quick to mention that she hasn't forgotten it either.

"I acted inappropriately toward Mrs. Burton and I sincerely apologise", he wrote.

At the time, Affleck's move was treated as amusing, naughty moment in TRL's history, but as Burton says now, "I didn't forget [about it] ..."

Then, "Lethal Weapon" cast member Hilarie Burton shared her own Affleck story from her time as a VJ on "Total Request Live".

"I didn't forget. Seriously, thank you for that".

"I didn't forget... I was a kid", Burton tweeted in response to a fan who brought up the incident, which occurred in 2001 when she was 18. Burton would have been 20 or 21 at the time.

"Girls. I'm so impressed with you fearless ones", the actress wrote alongside the clip. On Twitter, she explains that "I had to laugh back then so I wouldn't cry".


Burton confirmed that the incident did happen. McGowan claimed that she had spoken to Affleck about Weinstein's behaviour but didn't pay heed. Actress Rose McGowan has accused Affleck of lying about his knowledge of Weinstein's alleged misconduct and assaults of women.

"GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT' you said that to my face".

He added later in the interview: "This morning, I just feel absolutely sick to my stomach".

McGowan also referred to the controversy over a 2010 lawsuit alleging Casey Affleck sexually harassed two female crew members on the set of a movie he was working on. She reportedly settled a sexual harassment lawsuit against Weinstein in 1997.

Harvey Weinstein best known for films like Shakespeare in Love and Pulp fiction with his most famous leading ladies.

In another sequence, you can clearly see Ben Affleck catch, literally, a journalist of the chain Star, even when the latter clearly seems to be wishing to put an end to this physical contact.

Later in the video he goes on to say: "Don't make me look like I am retarded!"
