Ben Affleck Addresses Rampant Sexual Misconduct in Hollywood


Ben Affleck is one of many men in Hollywood who have recently faced claims of sexual misconduct. In Affleck’s case, actress and host Hilarie Burton says he touched her inappropriately during a live segment of Total Request Live on MTV in 2003. He has since apologized and now says he has a better sense of the challenges women face.

“I think the most important thing to do is support the voices coming forward, believe them, and create a business where more women are empowered and in place so less of this happens and so there is a way of reporting this stuff that people can feel safe doing,” Affleck, 45, said during a November 16 appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. “If I was ever part of the problem, I want to change and be part of the solution.”
