Dustin Hoffman Apologizes to Sexual Harassment Victim

Dustin Hoffman Sexual Harassment Allegations

Dustin Hoffman has apologized to theĀ  woman claimed that the Hollywood legend sexually harassed when she was 17-years-old.

In the apology, the 80-year-old actor expressed remorse for his alleged behavior.

The incident took place while on the set of the 1985 TV film Death of a Salesman.

Anna Graham Hunter reportedly kept a journal of her time working with the film’s various stars as a production assistant.

Hunter detailed her interactions over the five weeks she worked alongside Hoffman.

Hunter alleged that, she was targeted by the actor with a range of inappropriate behavior, including groping her and directing crude comments at her.

“He asked me to give him a foot massage my first day on set; I did,” Hunter writes. “He was openly flirtatious, he grabbed my ass, he talked about sex to me and in front of me.”

Hunter, who tells her story as a contributing columnist for the Hollywood Reporter, says at first she loved the attention from the actor, until things took a darker turn.

The allegations against Hoffman are the latest in a series of sexual harassment accusations to emerge in the past month against Hollywood figures including film mogul Harvey Weinstein, former Amazon Studios head Roy Price and directors James Toback and Brett Ratner.
