Former "One Tree Hill" actress Hilarie Burton is claiming that Ben Affleck once groped her on "TRL."

Following Affleck's statement about producer Harvey Weinstein's allege history of sexual assault in which Affleck said that Weinstein's behavior "made me sick," one Twitter user said that he "should've just kept quiet. Clearly he wasn't thinking about his daughters when he left them to gallivant with their nanny."

Another user's response to the tweet put a spotlight on an alleged moment from Affleck's past.


"He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once," the user tweeted. "Everyone forgot though."

Burton started her career off as a MTV VJ, where she interviewed a ton of Hollywood's most famous faces alongside fellow future stars like Vanessa Lachey and LaLa Anthony.

Hours later, Burton chimed in: "I didn't forget."

The exchange prompted more tweets between the two, with Burton saying that she "was a kid" when it happened.


"Girls. I'm so impressed with you brave ones," Burton continued. "I had to laugh back then so I wouldn't cry. Sending love." 

She also linked to a video which shows her explaining the moment. "He comes over and tweaks my left boob," she says, before another clip shows Affleck asking her, "How old are you, 19?"


The actress is currently expecting her second child with actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Burton's reveal came after actress Rose McGowan, who was one of the women who came forward claiming that Weinstein had sexually harassed her, also called out Affleck over his statement.

"Ben Affleck f--k off," she tweeted. 

"@benaffleck 'GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT' you said that to my face," she added in another tweet. "The press [conference] I was made to go after assault. You lie."


McGowan is just one of the many women who have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape against Weinstein, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd. In the fallout from the bombshell claims, Weinstein has been fired from The Weinstein Company, been left by his wife and has reportedly jetted off to Europe to seek counseling for sex addiction.
