Ben Affleck came out swiftly against Harvey Weinstein earlier this week, saying he was “saddened and angry” by the reports of his friend’s misbehavior.

Allegations that he had groped costar Hilarie Burton on TRL in 2003 quickly surfaced though. He issued an apology but it may have been too little too late.

Here’s the video in question:

But it didn’t stop there. Reports later surfaced that Affleck had been disrespectful during an interview to promote his 2004 film “Jersey Girl.”

During an interview with Anne-Marie Losique, he spent a majority of the segment trying to convince her to sit on his lap and take her shirt off.

And last night, makeup artist Annamarie Tendler came forward, claiming Affleck grabbed her during a Golden Globes party in 2014.

Comedy screen writer Jen Statsky reinforced Tendler’s allegations, claiming she’d seen similar behavior that night.

Affleck hasn’t commented on the recent allegations, however a person close with the actor said, “Any allusion that he’s anywhere close to Harvey Weinstein is absurd and could be considered defamatory.”
