‘One Tree Hill’ Star Hilarie Burton Says Ben Affleck Groped Her When She ‘Was A Kid’
Apparently, Hollywood has a lot more sexual harassers than Harvey Weinstein — and some of them might even be our most beloved A-listers.
Ben Affleck came out saying he was “saddened and angered” by claims of alleged sexual harassment and assault against the movie mogul.
But One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton says it was Ben who groped her while she was a host on MTV’s TRL.
After a Twitter user wrote, after Ben’s apology: “He also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though,” the 35-year-old actress bluntly responded about the alleged 2003 incident, “I didn’t forget.”
“I’m so sorry that happened to you,” the fan wrote back. “It’s infuriating that people never bring up all the gross, predatory things he’s done.”
“Seriously, thank you for that. I was a kid,” Burton said.
Girls. I’m so impressed with you brave ones. I had to laugh back then so I wouldn’t cry. Sending love.

And these users aren’t the only ones buying Ben’s half-ass apology.
