1. She Claims Affleck Groped Her at a Hollywood Party
On Wednesday, Tendler wrote on Twitter that Affleck “grabbed [her] ass” at a Golden Globes party in 2014, and that she’d like an apology from him.
She added on, “He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack. I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back?”
2. She Is a Makeup Artist
Tendler is the author of The Daily Face and Pin It. She is also a victorian lampshade maker.

3. She Is John Mulaney’s Wife
Tendler is married to stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and producer John Mulaney, known for SNL and Big Mouth.
The couple married on July 5, 2014, in Boiceville, New York, according to US Magazine. Seth Meyers, SNL actress Nasim Pedrad, Nick Kroll, and Amy Poehler all attended the ceremony.
Mulaney and Tendler met years ago while vacationing in Massachusetts. US Weekly reports their wedding site as reading, “After a group vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, John rode shotgun while Anna drove a carload of people home… He did bits the whole ride and killed. They were not dating at the time, but Anna knew they would be soon after.”
4. Tendler Requested an Apology from Affleck on Twitter After He Apologized to Actor Hilarie Burton For Inappropriately Touching Her
On Wednesday, Affleck apologized to Hilarie Burton on Twitter for grabbing her breasts on TRL in 2003. At the time, Burton was just 21.
Burton says she was groped by Affleck during an appearance on MTV’s TRL in 2003. She discussed the event on Twitter after Affleck issued a statement saying he was “saddened and angry” over the “sickening” claims against Harvey Weinstein.
Multiple people slammed Affleck’s response to the Weinstein allegations, and accused him of being a hypocrite. Rose McGown called him a liar. One fan tweeted that Affleck “grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though.” Burton then surprisingly responded to the fan, writing, “I didn’t forget.”
Hilarie thanked the fan for remembering the incident, and wrote, “I was a kid…Girls. I’m so impressed with you brave ones. I had to laugh back then so I wouldn’t cry. Sending love.”
