An Old Ben Affleck Video Has Resurfaced Online And He Probably Wishes It Hadn’t

Ben Affleck is an actor who’s renaissance surprised many moviegoers. Moviegoers who lined up to catch his latest projects. But following the cataclysmic allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck’s actions have also been put under the scanner.

In the wake of Weinstein’s allegations, Affleck publicly expressed his disappointment in his former colleague, but it wasn’t long before his own actions came under question.

Actress Hilarie Burton re-stated her accusation that Ben Affleck groped her during a taping of MTV’s “TRL”. However, another video has come to light which shows Affleck’s questionable behaviour towards host Anne-Marie Losique. (H/t)

The incident took place when she was interviewing him for a show called Box Office.

The video depicts Ben Affleck in conversation with Losique saying things that are clearly inappropriate for a professional interview. Such as –

 “We could do the interview like this, that’s a lovely perfume you have on. You usually show a lot more cleavage than this. What’s the story? Why are you covering it up today?”

The video, which is admittedly extremely hard to watch, also shows Affleck groping the interviewer’s breasts while making more lewd statements. However, it needs to be noted that the host herself has stated the interview was all for the cameras, she didn’t feel victimized at all.

“You have to understand that we have done dozens and dozens of interviews like that. It was for a show I was producing, so I was not at all a victim. When the cameras rolled, we would start to do that game. As soon as it stopped rolling, there was none of that. He never touched me in any improper way. He was very respectful, I must say.”

The host has insisted that she hates the interview has been mixed in with everything else and that it is not the same thing.

The video is indeed inappropriate though, and without question isn’t safe for work. And while I as a woman cannot pass judgement as easily as I would like on the matter, perhaps it’s best that the unnecessarily raunchy and sexualized format of television programming is dying its overdue death.
