Ben Affleck should be swimming in positive press right now.

Losique, however, is speaking out in defense of Affleck's behavior and insists that the pair were putting on a show for the camera.

Hours after Affleck posted his statement on Facebook and Twitter, NYC writer Shanice Brim tweeted that Affleck "grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once".

The makeup artist, author and wife of comedian John Mulaney opened up about an alleged incident involving Affleck in a series of tweets Wednesday, claiming the actor touched her inappropriately at a Golden Globes party in 2014. 'You could be at church and have that rack on display'.

"It has been blown out of proportion", Losique told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. When the cameras rolled, we would start to do that game. She added nothing else in her reply.

Burton responded, "I didn't forget".

Affleck can be heard saying to the TV host in the newly-resurfaced 2004 clip: "They would like it better if you did this show topless, the station, wouldn't they?" Affleck confirmed the incident on Twitter.

Affleck jumped to Twitter after the video began going viral and apologized to Burton.

In response to Hilarie's remarks about his "TRL" appearance, Ben tweeted simply: "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologise".

A representative for Weinstein denied the allegations of sexual assault in a statement to CNN. He concludes, "We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power", and that "support those who come forward" part is proving kinda sticky for the actor, now that women are coming forward with stories of Affleck's unwanted advances. "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick". "This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others".

Rose McGowan, one of Weinstein's accusers, has claimed that Affleck knew about Weinstein's behaviour in the 1990s but kept quiet.
