AceShowbiz - As allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Harvey Weinstein keep stacking up, several women also came forward with similar accusations against actor Ben Affleck. Just days after the Batman depicter landed in hot water for resurfaced "TRL" scandal involving actress Hilarie Burton, another woman alleged that Affleck groped her butt in 2014.
Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler took to Twitter on Wednesday night, October 11 to demand an apology from the actor, who allegedly "grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014." She went on explaining, "He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack."

"I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back?" she continued. Tendler concluded by saying that, just "like most women in these situations," she opted not to "say anything but I have thought a lot about what I'd say if I ever saw him again."

The mounting sexual assault and harassment allegations against her ex apparently got Jennifer Garner heartbroken. A source revealed to HollywoodLife.com, "Jen is heartbroken over Ben's situation and all of the horrible things that are being said about him." The "Alias" alum reportedly "is worried for their children and especially their daughters. She is doing her best to teach the kids that their father is a good man but still everyone is human and we all make mistakes sometimes."
"Jen fears that Ben's reckless past may haunt their children and she is doing her best to protect them from any negativity in the world," the source added. "She wants them to know too that it is OK to get help when you need it. Jen is embarrassed for Ben but also not surprised. She knew what a wild guy he could be, it is the reason she fell in love with him and also part of the reason they are no longer together. She definitely knew about his demons but hoped they wouldn't be exposed. Now that some of this stuff is coming to light, she is doing her best to be a good mother and do what is best for their children."
Affleck was previously called out for being a hypocrite after slamming Harvey Weinstein while he himself had a bad history regarding sexual harrasment allegations. Back in 2003, Affleck was featured hugging VJ Burton in MTV's "TRL" interview.
However, in a confessional video, the "One Tree Hill" alum revealed, "He wraps his arm around me and he comes over and tweaks my left boob!" The actor later took to Twitter to apologize to Burton, writing, "I acted inappropriately towards Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize."
