‘This was for the camera’
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.
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.”
