Dustin under fire ‘HE ASSAULTED BOTH OF US’
THE ACTOR AND DIRECTOR FACES SEXUAL HARRASSMENT ACCUSERS
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.
