"Everyone forgot though." The 35-year-old actress herself then weighed in: "I didn't forget", she wrote, adding that she was just "a kid" when it happened. "Harvey had called me and said, they're writing a story about Fabrizio, who I knew from 'The Talented Mr. Ripley.' He had organized our premiere in Italy and so I knew him in a professional capacity and I'd had dinner at his house", "The Martian" star said.

She also wrote in response: 'Ben Affleck fuck off'.

In the clip, Burton explains, "He wraps his arm around me and comes over and tweaks my left boob". Burton said cheerfully in the clip.

The flashback footage is followed by Burton shrugging it off to the camera: "Some girls like a good tweakage here and there, I'd rather have a high-five". According to the Daily Mail, no groping can be seen on camera, but she visibly reacts as Affleck smiles and sits back down.

The Charmed actress reached a settlement with Weinstein back in 1997, but it has yet to hold her back from voicing opinions on the matter.

With that, Burton - who is pregnant and expecting her second child with The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan - shared outtakes from TRL, in which she appeared to address the alleged situation.

'He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once.

Hours after Ben Affleck condemned the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton accused Affleck of groping her when she was the host of MTV's Total Request Live.

"Ben Affleck f*ck off. GODDAMNIT!" This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others.

Actress Rose McGowan, who co-starred in the 1998 Miramix movie "Phantoms" with Affleck, accused Affleck of lying.

It was reported by the NYT that McGown had accepted a $100,000 settlement in 1997 after an incident with Harvey Weinstein.
