LONDON — Ben Affleck says the storm of sexual harassment allegations engulfing Hollywood has led him to examine his own behavior.
In an interview Sunday to promote the superhero film ‘‘Justice League,’’ Affleck said he’s ‘‘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.
In the interview, 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.
Tapings for ‘‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’’ have been cancelled all this week following the death of the talk show host’s mother. NBC said Sunday that repeat episodes will be shown Monday to Friday. A spokeswoman for Fallon said his mother, Gloria Fallon, died Saturday at a New York hospital with her son and other family by her side. She was 68.
Fallon told the Associated Press through his spokeswoman that he lost his ‘‘biggest fan.’’
‘‘The Tonight Show’’ had canceled its episode Friday, following reports of a family matter.
Gloria Fallon had attended the taping of her son’s first night hosting ‘‘The Tonight Show’’ in 2014. Jimmy Fallon has also featured his mom in the show’s hashtag segment, #MomQuotes.
