Hilarie Burton Says Ben Affleck Groped Her on 'TRL'

UDPATE on 10/11: Ben Affleck has issued a statement in response. Read it right here.

Hilarie Burton is speaking out about being groped by Ben Affleck during his appearance on TRL over a decade ago.

The 35-year-old former MTV VJ spoke out after Ben made a statement condemning Harvey Weinstein‘s alleged 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 2003.

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 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.”

Reps for Ben did not immediately return requests for comment.

    Ughh so gross.
    He was disgusting then, still disgusting now. And a Hollywood stereotype – when he arrived, he was a modest A cup. Now he is rocking a set of solid full Cs.
    Trash.

    You need to calm down, Ben likes to f- the nanny while you’re here, playing with your gaping holes thinking about his suicidal toupee wearing shit face. You need to get your priorities straight, and finally get that surgery.

  • calafeast

    So cringe. Grabbed her by the pussy. Yet nobody protests him for whatever reason. Where are lena, chelsea, jessica and that repulsive idiot kaiser froim celebitchy?

  • Ulysses Joyce

    huh ,what they hell did I just read.what are you talking about gaping holes and me needing surgery?

    are you nuts?

  • Ulysses Joyce

    hey psycho shut up.

  • Sansa Squad

    Remember that interview where Ben made the interviewer sit on his lap and aggressively hit on her the whole time?? Given how flagrantly he was wilding at that time, I wouldn’t be surprised if this groping happened on air (is that how the fan knew this? V curious)… His reputation – along with his trash brother’s and Matt Damon’s for that matter – or what was left of it anyway is the best collateral damage to come out of all of this.

    I KNEW it! I knew the guy was shady him and his brother. After the ‘Trace your roots’ episode then the Nanny thing and then the SNL mistress…yeah this a pattern.

    I will not be surprised if more women step up now. You can see Ben Affleck as deviant.

    Nobody watch anything he stars in. Lets give the ladies the floor!

    No Harvey

  • Adeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Ben Affleck being a scumbag is the least surprising thing I’ve read today. Someone needs to expose his ass big time & destroy his overrated career. Enough is enough

  • Jay Last

    Then read this: stop blaming the victim.

    Who is nuts here?

  • Ulysses Joyce

    hahaha not Harvey, the women is nuts.

  • Ulysses Joyce

    How about we maybe be critical and not listen and believe everything.I am not blaming the victim .I am telling the things she should have done.

    It going to the police and reporting it.

  • Anna

    Not a fan of Affleck or his brother, however I took a look at the video and she was all over him. Sitting on his lap, pushing her face into his neck. It was awkward to watch. :/ It looked like they were both drunk and flirting with each other. It looked like she wanted the attention, especially doing it infront of the cameras like that.

  • sheigh

    Affleck’s men are just pieces of crap ! Stay away girls!

  • 777

    I think was on live tv…

  • CANDLELIGHT

    of course he is an liar, ben did stuff as well, grabbed sienna’s boob on premiere of live by night, also the ass of SALMA HAYEK & LINDA FIORENTINO in dogma premiere, the interviewer he heavily hitted on, the proves are all over internet, he prob has a sex addiction problem as well like harvey and his brother too lets not forget that.

  • Girl, please

    Wow! Drunk pig! Gross

  • calafeast

    So?
    He is a moviestar he needs to conduct himself better. It is not his bedroom, sex dungeon, or the democratic national convention after hours.

  • Dusty Thompson

    But we should all listen to them when it comes to immigration, guns, abortion, economics…

  • Dusty Thompson

    I hate to break it to you women but all men have a sex addiction. It’s what gives you chicks more undeserved power than you have ever had in History. I would hush that “sex addiction” nonsense up if I were you women, lol.

    All of these big mouth leftwit “starlets” all used Harvey just as much as he used them. They aren’t victims, lol.

    Whats comical is now knowing why talentless hacks like Jenn Lawrence make millions.

  • CANDLELIGHT

    nonsense ? well go check by yourself on internet affleck’s actions….he is no saint either.

  • Anna

    I agree with you. Like I said it was hard and uncomfortable to watch. Not a fan of Ben or his brother for that matter. But the girl isn’t innocent either. The same thing you wrote could be said about her.

  • calafeast

    I’m sure she is getting paid by WB to defend their precious batdick now…
