Ben Affleck has apologized for “acting inappropriately” toward actress Hilarie Burton more than a decade ago, according to a tweet from the star.
The apology came just a day after Affleck released a statement condemning director Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually assaulting and harassing a number of women.
Last night, Burton shared a video from “TRL Uncensored II” that featured her speaking to the Affleck and suggesting that he grabbed her breast.
“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” he tweeted Wednesday. He didn’t elaborate and a publicist did not immediately return an email for comment.
