Dustin Hoffman Accused of Sexual Misconduct

In the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein, many people are gathering courage and coming out with their stories of how they were sexually abused or harassed by well-known personages in the Hollywood industry industry. One of the men to join the ever-growing list of the accused is American actor and director Dustin Hoffman. To find out more about the allegations against him, keep on reading.

Reportedly, five women have come out with claims that actor Dustin Hoffman sexually abused and harassed them when they were as young as 15.

One of the women who’ve accused Hoffman is Cori Thomas, a friend of the actor’s daughter.

Thomas claimed that in 1980, she, Hoffman’s daughter, and Hoffman spent a day together in New York. Later on, Hoffman’s daughter went back home and Thomas waited with Hoffman in his room for her parents to pick her up.

Thomas explained, “He came out of the bathroom with a towel at first wrapped around him, which he dropped. He was standing there naked. I think I almost collapsed. It was the first time I had ever seen a naked man. I was mortified. I didn’t know what to do.”

Later on, Thomas claims that he put on a bathrobe and that she was saved when her mother came to pick her up.

Another female who accused Hoffman is Melissa Kester. She alleges she was sexually assaulted by Hoffman in a recording studio in the 80s.

Anna Graham Hunter wrote an essay published in The Hollywood Reporter. In it, she alleged that Hoffman sexually harassed her when she was a 17-year-old production assistant on the set of Death of a Salesman.

Statement Released by Dustin Hoffman

After the Hunter essay was published, Hoffman released a statement that read, “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”

As of now, Hoffman has not commented on the allegations. However, his lawyer has denied these allegations, saying they are “defamatory falsehoods.” No charges have been laid.
