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

  • No 'Good will' for Harvey Weinstein

"Girls. I'm so impressed with you courageous ones", Burton, who is expecting her second child with The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, wrote in the tweet.

A video archive dating back to 2003 and posted on YouTube is always available.

Shortly after McGowan accused Affleck of being more than aware of Weinstein's horrific behavior, former "One Tree Hill" actor Hilarie Burton tweeted about an appearance Affleck made when she was hosting TRL in the early 2000's and he grabbed her breast from behind. We need to improve ourselves to help our sisters, our friends, our colleagues and our girls. "I was never conscripted to do anything". I was like, but what is it that you do? "I have not forgotten".

The Twitter user Shanice Brime responded to Burton by saying, "I'm so sorry that happened to you". "Harvey had called me and said, they're writing a story about Fabrizio, who I knew from 'The Talented Mr. Ripley.' He had organized our premiere in Italy and so I knew him in a professional capacity and I'd had dinner at his house", "The Martian" star said.

Asia Argento, an Italian film actress and director, claimed that Weinstein "forcibly performed oral sex on her" but that she refused to speak out because "he has crushed a lot of people".

Burton replied: "Seriously, thank you for that. I was a kid".

"I had to laugh back then so I wouldn't cry", she tweeted.

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

Ben Affleck would in any case have had to think twice before expressing his outrage.

However, Affleck's condemnation of the recently-fired The Weinstein Company founder failed to resonate with one particular actress, Rose McGowan - who has worked with the Batman actor in 1998 thriller Phantoms. A clip of their sitdown shows Affleck telling her, "It's so nice to see you!" and walking over to give her a hug.
