Dustin Hoffman Accused Of Sexually Harassing 17-Year-Old Intern

Dustin Hoffman has been accused of sexually harassing a 17-year-old intern on the set of his 1985 TV adaptation “Death of a Salesman.”
Writer Anna Graham Hunter recounted the five weeks she spent working with Hoffman as a production assistant in detail for The Hollywood Reporter, painting the Oscar-winner as both a charming and disturbing figure. 

He asked me to give him a foot massage my first day on set; I did. He was openly flirtatious, he grabbed my ass, he talked about sex to me and in front of me,” Hunter recounted. “One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time. Then he said, “I’ll have a hard-boiled egg … and a soft-boiled clitoris.”
I loved the attention from Dustin Hoffman. Until I didn’t,” she added. 
Hunter regularly corresponded with her sister, sending detailed messages about Hoffman repeatedly groping her and making sexually inappropriate comments, which the outlet has printed in full.
“Today, when I was walking Dustin to his limo, he felt my ass four times. I hit him each time, hard, and told him he was a dirty old man,” she wrote to her sister. “He took off his hat and pointed to his head (shaved for the part) and said, “No, I’m a dirty young man, I have a full head of hair.”
At the time, Hoffman was at the peak of his career, coming off critically acclaimed films like “Tootsie” and “Kramer vs. Kramer,” a film that has also been embroiled in controversydue to Hoffman’s behavior behind the scenes. 
She claims that actor’s misconduct was widely known and condoned on the set of “Death of a Salesman,” despite her efforts to alert superiors who told her to “sacrifice some of our values” to keep the production running smoothly. 
Hoffman issued a response apologizing in broad terms for any harm he caused. 
“I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”
