Again Dustin Hoffman accused for sexual assault

Again Dustin Hoffman accused for sexual assault

At one point, the actor grabbed her breasts and groped the inside of her thighs. "How could the same man who fought to get me the job, who complimented my work, essentially launched my career, who gave me the benefit of his wisdom as an actor, how could he also be this sexual power abuser?"

The Hollywood Reporter said Hoffman's representatives refused comment on Rossetter's allegations, but his attorneys referred the publication to a number people involved in the theater production, including some co-stars.

"It just doesn't ring true", production stage manager Tom Kelly said.

This week actress Ashley Judd, who was among the first women to accuse film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment was among the personalities featured on Time magazine's Person of the Year cover, as the magazine chose to mark the global movement against sexual assault triggered by women who stepped up and named their accusers.

According to Rossetter, their professional relationship started off well when Hoffman reacted emphatically to her audition and lobbied for her to get the part of Willy Loman's mistress despite the director thinking she wasn't old enough for the role.

"Whenever he had a picture taken with me, he would put his arm around my rib cage and then grab my breast just before they snapped the picture and then remove it". Rossetter wrote. "Was I doing something?" "Given my position, it's insulting to say this kind of activity would go on to the extent of sexual violation", he said (via Entertainment Weekly). Hoffman later said he doesn't know who the woman is and that he's never met her or not met her alone. Her guest column included a photo of Hoffman with his hand on her chest. Wendy Riss Gatsiounis also told Variety that Hoffman did inappropriate things to her in 1991.

Graham Hunter, like Rossetter, made her claims in a guest column published November 1 by the Hollywood Reporter.

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver recently took advantage of an opportunity to grill Hoffman over the sexual harassment allegations against him.

He told Hoffman that "it is reflective of who you were" in reply to his original statement over Graham Hunter.

Hoffman issued an apology in response to the accusation. She said the prank made her miss her cue and that she was reprimanded for it.

She claims this incident was the start of abuse that happened "almost every show".

Hoffman was accused of molesting an actress, who worked with him in the 1980s. Now a third woman has come forward with allegations against the actor, and sadly, her account seems to echo the stories of the first two women. "The theme of the movie is (my character) became a better man by having been a woman".
