Ben Affleck weighs in on sexual harassment in Hollywood

LONDON: Ben Affleck said the storm of sexual harassment allegations engulfing Hollywood has led him to examine his own behavior.
In an interview Sunday with The Associated Press for the superhero film “Justice League,” Affleck said he is “looking at my own behavior and addressing that and making sure I’m part of the solution.”
After condemning Harvey Weinstein’s actions last month, Affleck was forced to defend his own conduct. He apologized for groping the actress Hilarie Burton on camera in 2003 when she was a host on MTV’s “Total Request Live.” Another video from 2004 showed Affleck pulling Montreal TV host Anne-Marie Losique onto his lap.
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.

LONDON: Britain’s Prince Harry has asked his elder brother Prince William to be his best man at his wedding to US actress Meghan Markle next month, his office said in a statement on Thursday.

Harry was William’s best man at his own glittering wedding to wife Kate Middleton in 2011.

“The Duke of Cambridge is honored to have been asked and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19th,” Kensington Palace said.

Earlier this week William and Kate, whose official titles are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, celebrated the arrival of their third child.
