Affleck also faced flack from actress Rose McGowan, who is among the women accusing Weinstein of sexual harassment on Twitter after the "Justice League" star released a statement on the producer.
"I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades," Affleck said of Weinstein. "I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others."
"''GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT' you said that to my face. The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie," McGowan said of Affleck's response when she told him that Weinstein had assaulted her.
