In the wake of Bill Cosby, Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, Harvey Weinstein, and now Amazon executive Roy Price all being accused of sexual harassment or assault... other stars are being caught in the crossfire! Specifically, Ben Affleck!
Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler (who’s married to comedian John Mulaney) says she wants an apology from Affleck after he groped her butt at the Golden Globes.
This, after former TRL host Hilarie Burton said he groped her on TV in 2003! Watch it here!
The clip shows her talking about it right after it happened, and what’s interesting is that MTV used it as a promo clip for the show (a highlight, if you will). Shows you just how much the culture has changed!
Affleck apologized to Hilarie on Twitter, but his troubles aren't over. A French Canadian host is now defending him after their very touchy and flirtatious interview from 2004 also went viral again!
In it, she is sitting on Affleck’s lap, he presses his head into her chest, and then comments on her body. However, she says that it was consensual, she felt comfortable, and that it was a "game" that they would play with each other.
What’s interesting, again, is that Ben Affleck acted this way with her in a room full of people, on camera! This was just 13 years ago, but in 2017 nobody would dare do this.
