‘This was for the cam­era’

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ - — WENN

cana­dian TV per­son­al­ity Anne-Marie Losique has rushed to ben af­fleck’s de­fence af­ter a 2004 video of him mak­ing sex­ual com­ments to­wards her resur­faced.

the footage was taken dur­ing an in­ter­view between the ac­tor and Losique, while she was seated on the star’s lap. dur­ing the ex­change, af­fleck, who was in a re­la­tion­ship with Jen­nifer Lopez at the time, ca­resses Losique’s torso, tells her to re­move her top and com­ments on the feel of her breasts.

‘Neg­a­tive im­pact’

yet she main­tains noth­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ate took place.

“it has been blown out of pro­por­tion,” Losique tells The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. “i know that peo­ple like fish­ing for any­thing, but this is com­pletely out of con­text. i would like this to not have any neg­a­tive im­pact on him. i find it sad.”

“this was for the cam­era,” Losique added. “you have to un­der­stand that we have done dozens and dozens of in­ter­views like that. it was for a show i was pro­duc­ing, so i was not at all a vic­tim. When the cam­eras rolled, we would start to do that game. as soon as it stopped rolling, there was none of that. He never touched me in any im­proper way. He was very re­spect­ful, i must say.”
