Now, one of the actors closely connected with Harvey, Ben Affleck, is facing allegations against him after responding to requests from the general public about Harvey's actions.




"The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick".

Burton, who was 21 at that time, said that she didn't know how to react then and laughed it off in a nervous situation. Later in the clip, Affleck says to her, "How old are you-19?"

Last night, Ben Affleck shared a statement in which he said the accusations made him "angry", continuing: "I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others". Seducer, Ben Affleck had approached her for a hug inappropriate, passing his hand around his body and touching his chest. I'm so impressed with you courageous ones. Burton then replied, "Seriously, thank you for that". But she was paying attention, as evidenced when Shanice Brim reminded another user that Affleck once groped Burton on TRL.

"Girls. I'm so impressed with you fearless ones", Burton tweeted, posting a link to a video of an episode of TRL outtakes.
