Don’t kid yourself. He’s only desperately trying to save his career and promote his movie, Justice League, which opens on November 13.
From Hollywood Reporter: Ben Affleck says the storm of sexual harassment allegations engulfing Hollywood has led him to examine his own behavior.
In an interview Sunday with the Associated Press for Justice League, Affleck said he’s “looking at my own behavior and addressing that and making sure I’m part of the solution.”
After condemning Harvey Weinstein’s actions last month, Affleck was forced to defend his own conduct. He apologized for groping actress Hilarie Burton on camera in 2003 when she was a host on MTV’s Total Request Live. Another video from 2004 showed Affleck pulling Montreal TV host Anne-Marie Losique onto his lap.
Speaking Sunday, Affleck said two things need to happen, that “more women need to be pushed to power” and that sexual harassment has to also be “a men’s issue” where guys call out inappropriate behavior.
