Shamed Af­fleck is the Buttman

Daily Star - - News - By KATE NEL­SON

BAT­MAN star Ben Af­fleck has been dubbed “Buttman” af­ter more grop­ing claims. Make-up artist An­na­marie Tendler said he fon­dled her bum at an awards cer­e­mony. She wrote on Twit­ter: “I would also love to get an apol­ogy from Ben Af­fleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014. 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?

“Like most women in th­ese sit­u­a­tions, I didn’t say any­thing but I have thought a lot about what I’d say if I ever saw him again.”

Com­edy writer Jen Starkey joined in the row.

She tweeted that her friends were at the same party and “had this same ex­act ex­pe­ri­ence”.

So­cial me­dia users chimed in with a new nick­name. One wrote: “He must have

been get­ting in char­ac­ter as Buttman.” Af­fleck is to ap­pear as Bat­man for the sec­ond time in soon-to-be-re­leased su­per­hero film Jus­tice League. The ac­tor, 45, did not re­spond to the fresh claims.

It fol­lows his apol­ogy on Wed­nes­day for touch­ing ac­tor Hi­larie Bur­ton’s boob on telly. He tweeted: “I acted in­ap­pro­pri­ately to­ward Ms. Bur­ton and

sin­cerely apol­o­gize.”
