In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct allegations, more and more women are coming forward with their stories of their experiences with sexual assault, especially within the entertainment industry.
More recently, actor Dustin Hoffman, known for his roles in films like Rain Man and Kramer vs. Kramer, has been taking a lot of heat after multiple women brought forth sexual assault claims against him.
Hoffman, 80, was accused of sexual harassment by a woman named Anna Graham Hunter, who worked as an intern on the set of his 1985 movie Death of a Salesman. Hunter, who was just 17-years-old at the time, told The Hollywood Reporter that Hoffman flirted with her, grabbed her butt, and openly talked about sex in front of her.
The award-winning actor has also been accused of engaging in lewd behavior in front of a minor back in the 80s. Cori Thomas, who was a 16-year-old high school student at the time, says Hoffman exposed himself to her in a hotel room.
Another woman, Melissa Kester, says Hoffman violated her at a recording studio with her boyfriend present, while filming the movie Ishtar.
"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," recalled Kester. "I’m thinking that it’s kind of flirtatious and funny, like he’s holding onto me, because I’m going to help him sing better. And as he’s doing that, he literally just stuck his fingers down my pants. He put his fingers inside me. And the thing I feel most bad about is I didn’t know what to do."
A fourth woman, who chose to remain anonymous, also said that Hoffman assualted her in the back of a station wagon.
When the actor was publicly confronted about the accusations by host John Oliver, he denied all the allegations and insisted that the claims are "not reflective of who I am." He also apologized to Hunter for putting her "in an uncomfortable situation."
Now, a few weeks since these allegations came to light, another woman is calling out Hoffman for his abusive actions. This time, it's actress Meryl Streep that has some troubling things to say about the actor.
