Ben Affleck Says He Wants to Be ‘Part of the Solution’ on Sexual Harassment in Hollywood

Ben Affleck, currently promoting his upcoming movie Justice League, is talking about looking at his own behavior in the wake of the avalanche of harassment revelations and worse coming out of Hollywood.

Affleck, you may remember, got some press attention last month after actress Hilarie Burton brought up the time he groped her on TRL. Affleck apologized just one day after issuing a public statement about Harvey Weinstein.

Rose McGowan in particular called Affleck out after that statement:

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Affleck told the AP in an interview yesterday he’s doing some self-reflecting:

Affleck said he’s “looking at my own behavior and addressing that and making sure I’m part of the solution”…

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.
