Ben Affleck apologizes for groping Hilarie Burton in 2003

Ben Affleck issued a public apology for groping “One Tree Hill” actress Hilarie Burton in 2003.

“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” Affleck tweeted Wednesday.

The move came after Burton, 35, tweeted on Tuesday that she “didn’t forget” the incident, which occurred during an episode of MTV’s “Total Request Live,” adding, “I was a kid.”

Burton previously recalled the uncomfortable moment in a “Total Request Live” retrospective.

“He wraps his arm around me and tweaks my left boob,” she said. “I’m just like, ‘What are you doing?’ … Some girls like good tweakage here and there. I’d rather have a high-five.”

The resurfacing of the incident came after Affleck’s denouncement of Harvey Weinstein following a slew of sexual harassment and assault allegations against the producer.

“I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades. The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick,” Affleck, 45, tweeted Tuesday. “This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others.”

Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler would like a word with Ben Affleck:

[Her tweets read:]

I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014.

He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack.

I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back?

Ben Affleck pledges to donate all of his Weinstein Company and Miramax residuals and says he wants to be ‘part of the solution’ on sex harassment

Ben Affleck says the surge of sexual harassment allegations engulfing Hollywood has led him to take a hard look at his own actions, and now he is planning to use a portion of his wealth to help make a change.

In an interview on Sunday with The Associated Press promoting the new superhero film Justice League, Affleck said he’s ‘looking at my own behavior and addressing that and making sure I’m part of the solution.’

After condemning Harvey Weinstein’s actions last month, Affleck was forced to defend his own conduct.

He apologized on Twitter for groping the actress Hilarie Burton on camera in 2003 when she was a host on MTV’s Total Request Live.

Another video from 2004 showed Affleck pulling Montreal TV host Anne-Marie Losique onto his lap and talking about her breasts.

Speaking Sunday, Affleck said two things need to happen, that ‘more women need to be pushed to power’ and that sexual harassment has to also be ‘a men’s issue’ where guys call out inappropriate behavior.

In an interview with Fox DC, the Academy Award winner said he will be pledging his future residuals from Weinstein Company and Miramax films to charities that benefit women.
