Ben Affleck's interview with Anne-Marie Losique wherein he was a bit too touchy-feely with her has made headlines once again amid Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment and rape allegations. However, the latter has come forward to explain that Affleck's actions were far from sexual harassment.

Explaining Affleck's actions during his 2004 interview with her, Losique said that the actual situation is different from how people perceived it. Losique explained that how she and Affleck acted during the interview was purely to help boost the show's ratings and added that this technique was "very popular" in Quebec.

"We always got very high ratings," she told Entertainment Tonight. "Networks would 'milk that,' as we say a lot. It was huge, really, as a fun thing."

Since she found the whole thing funny, she never edited out parts of it and simply released the full interview. "I aired everything that we did in the full interview without editing anything out because I thought it was kind of fun," Losique added. "Every time there were those interviews, everybody would watch and it was a big thing in Quebec. People still talk to me about it in very good terms nowadays. Now, of course with this whole story, I guess it changes the dynamic a little bit, but up to yesterday night, it was still very positive."

For those questioning Affleck's behavior during the interview, Losique shut them down and stressed that "she's not a victim" because everything they did was for the camera. "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," she said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "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."

This comes after it was revealed that the "Justice League" star subtly denied having any knowledge of Weinstein's history of sexual abuse. Some then called Affleck a "hypocrite" for his denial of Weinstein's sordid past.

In related news, Affleck also recently issued an apology to Hilarie Burton for groping her breasts when they appeared on "Total Request Live" in 2003. In a tweet, Affleck wrote, "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize."
