During an interview with ET, Morgan said he "of course" was happy that Affleck eventually apologized for his "inappropriate" actions towards Burton, adding, "I don't want to make a big deal of it because she didn't, but I think everything that's come out in the last couple of weeks, starting with Harvey Weinstein – anybody who has talked about it and even those who haven't yet are incredibly brave and I think it's time for change."

The Walking Dead star continued to praise his brave and very pregnant wife, saying, "She is the most amazing person I've ever met."

Speaking to the ET reported, he continued, "You said, she's a bit of a role model for you – she is for me as well. There's no one stronger than her. How she's able to balance all the things that she balances and be a strong voice for good is amazing and I just couldn't be more proud. Every single day she does something that amazes me. She has made me such a better person, so I'm a lucky dude."
