OK! (Australia) - - This Week -

Ac­tor Dustin Hoff­man is the lat­est Hol­ly­wood heavy­weight fac­ing sex­ual mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions, af­ter two women claimed they’d been ha­rassed by the 80-year-old star.

Au­thor Anna Graham Hunter says she was as­saulted by Dustin when was a 17-year-old in­tern on the set of his 1985 film Death of a Sales­man. ‘He was openly flir­ta­tious, he grabbed my arse, he talked about sex in front of me,’ Anna wrote in The Hol­ly­wood Reporter.

One morn­ing, she re­calls vis­it­ing the star to take his break­fast or­der. ‘He said, “I’ll have a hard-boiled egg… and a soft boiled cli­toris,”’ Anna says. ‘His en­tourage burst out laugh­ing. I left, speech­less. Then I went to the bath­room and cried.’

Au­thor and pro­ducer Wendy Riss Gat­siou­nis has also come for­ward claim­ing Dustin propo­si­tioned her at a pitch meet­ing in 1991. Wendy, who was in her twen­ties at the time, says the ac­tor asked if she’d had sex with a man over 40. ‘He moves back, he opens his arms, and he says, “It would be a whole new body to ex­plore,”’ Wendy re­calls.

Dustin says Anna’s claim ‘is not re­flec­tive of who I am’
