FULL VIDEO: Ben Affleck Groping Hilarie Burton's Boob on TRL in 2001, When She Was 18

It happened on May 24, 2001, when Hilarie Burton was interviewing the cast of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Hilarie was 18 years old and Affleck was 28. The actress and former MTV VJ, Hilarie Burton, spoke out after Ben Affleck made a statement condemning Harvey Weinstein‘s actions in his sexual assault and harassment scandal.

When one fan tweeted that Ben should have “kept quiet,” another fan wrote, “He also grabbed Hilarie Burton‘s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though.” The incident was reportedly during the actor’s appearance on the show in 2001.

Hilarie wrote back, “I didn’t forget.” The fan replied, “I’m so sorry that happened to you.”

“Seriously, thank you for that. I was a kid,” Hilarie responded. She also tweeted a clip from MTV's TRL in which she talked about being groped by Ben. She tweeted, “Girls. I’m so impressed with you brave ones. I had to laugh back then so I wouldn’t cry. Sending love.”

The media is mixing up the dates because Affleck was interviewed by Hilarie on TRL in 2001 and 2003. But this video is from May 24, 2001, when Hilarie was interviewing the cast of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. So Hilarie was actually 18, not 21 (her birthday is in July), and Affleck was 28. He even asks if she's 19 at the end of the video. The official website of TRL shows the date of this interview:

Affleck apologized for acting "inappropriately" towards Hilarie hours after the story was all over the media.

More stories about Affleck sexually assaulting women have surfaced since then.
