Ben Affleck is not only a Hollywood hypocrite and a women-groper. He’s also a bold-faced liar.
That’s according to Rose McGowan, and actress who shared the screen with Affleck once…and now claims he told her he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s abuse of women.
If Affleck knew, his weak and pitiful statements about being shocked and surprised to hear the news about Weinstein is indeed total BS.
McGowan has tweeted the following:
@benaffleck “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.

More from CBS News:
Rose McGowan, one of the women who accused Weinstein of misconduct — and according to The New York Times, received a settlement from him in 1997 — called Affleck a liar for saying he was unaware of the behavior at the time. Affleck and McGowan appeared in two movies together at about that time.
She tweeted at Affleck: “‘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.”
A New Yorker exposé, published Tuesday, detailed allegations not just of sexual harassment but of three incidents involving rape. Actress Asia Argento and a former aspiring actress named Lucia Evans went on the record to allege Weinstein forced himself on them sexually.
A representative for Weinstein vehemently denied the allegations in a statement to the magazine.
Will other Hollywood stars and liberal Democrats disavow both Weinstein and Affleck?
