"I was a kid (sic)", Hilarie responded.

Hilarie Burton has now come forward with her own story of sexual harassment. I'm so impressed with you fearless ones. "Sending love", she wrote.

And Ben Affleck has apologized on Twitter for his behavior.

Affleck tweeted, hours after her online posts: "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize". She shared a video from the show where Affleck asks her how old she is, and she briefly describes him grabbing her. She had this to say. The press conf I was made to go to after assault [sic]. This was a long time ago, when he was promoting Pearl Harbor. "Now I'm always on his lap".

Rose McGowan's request that Ben Affleck "fuck off" in response to his tepid, meaningless condemnation of Harvey Weinstein wasn't the only criticism the "Good Will Hunting" co-star faced Tuesday night.

Maybe there is a reason Ben Affleck took almost a week to address growing allegations that his former mega-producer friend and collaborator Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed and assaulted actresses and other women he worked with.

He said that the news about the man who helped create his career "made me sick" and that we must "condemn this type of behaviour when we see it". "You lie", McGowan tweeted. Actress Rose McGowan has accused Affleck of lying about his knowledge of Weinstein's alleged misconduct and assaults of women. "I am saying exactly that", she said.

Weinstein was accused of raping three women in a new report by The New Yorker on Tuesday, which came on the heels of multiple women accusing him of sexually harassing them in a New York Times article last week.

His spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister said any allegations of non-consensual sex were "unequivocally denied" and that "there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances". The actor called sexual harassment in Hollywood "unacceptable" while saying that he wonders what he can do personally to prevent the bad events from ever happening to anybody else.

As the Harvey Weinstein scandal continues to reverberate throughout Hollywood appears old chickens are coming home to roost.
