Dustin Hoffman Accused of Sexually Assaulting Two Women, Exposing Self to Teen

New accusers come forward and accused Dustin Hoffman of sexual misconduct

Dustin Hoffman allegedly exposed himself to his daughter's 16-year-old classmate, while two other women, one of which went on record, have accused Hoffman of sexual assault, according to a report published by Variety. You know I am naked.

The Oscar victor responded to the allegations in a statement to THR: "I have the upmost respect for women and feel awful that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation".

The Variety report included the account of Melissa Kester, who said Hoffman pushed his hand down her trousers while he was recording music for "Ishtar" and happened behind a partition while others, including Kester's boyfriend, were nearby.

"And as he's doing that, he literally just stuck his fingers down my trousers", Kester said. Thomas says her mother always suspected something had happened but that she never told her at the time.

During an interview with the AP in Rome, where she had attended an event for Italian and American playwrights, Thomas described her shock and confusion in the hotel room with "a pretty huge star" who she thought of at the moment "as my friend's dad".

"I'm standing there, and it's kind of a small room, and he grabs me, so we're both facing out so we're both facing the people in the studio".

"I was just sitting there waiting for my parents". "One of my idols was spending time with me and talking with me respectfully". "What are they going to think of me, that I'm a whore, if I say something? I was frozen. I was outside of my body". The actor, Thomas claims, later went into the bathroom, then returned wearing just "a towel at first wrapped around him, which he dropped". Thomas remained friends with Hoffman's daughter and included her in her wedding party when she married in 1984. "I was mortified. I didn't know what to do", Thomas said.

"This was, at first, one of the greatest days of my life", she said. He milked the fact that he was naked. "I didn't know he would do that", she said.

A third woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said that Hoffman assaulted her in the back of a station wagon and manipulated her into a subsequent sexual encounter that left her traumatized.

She told CNN she had spent that day in 1980 with Hoffman and his daughter in New York City, visiting Central Park and having dinner. "I just ran out of there, and I sat in the bathroom crying", she says. I didn't know what to do. She says she did, and that they had a sexual encounter she is unsure whether or not she'd label non-consensual.

She told the outlet she was 21 in 1975 when Hoffman invited her for a night out after taking a tour on the Washington, DC, tour bus she was guiding. She went in. Hoffman was "flirtatious" but not in an "obscene" way.

As previously reported, former production intern Anna Graham Hunter accused Hoffman of sexual harassment on the set of Death of a Salesman in 1985.

Reports of misconduct against Hoffman originated in October, when a production assistant on Death of a Salesman alleged that Hoffman assaulted her when she was 17. She heard the shower turn on.

Oliver was moderating an anniversary screening of Wag the Dog with Hoffman when he called the actor's apology to Hunter a "cop-out" and slammed him for saying his actions were not reflective of his character.
