Five more sexual harassment shots fired at Dustin Hoffman


Thomas claimed that she unexpectedly ended up alone with Hoffman in his hotel room while waiting for her parents to pick her up.

"He came out of the bathroom with a towel at first wrapped around him, which he dropped", she says.

"It was the first time I had ever seen a naked man", she told Variety.

The writer went on to accuse Hoffman of making suggestive comments to her while she reluctantly massaged his feet at his request.

Another accuser, Melissa Kester, alleged that Hoffman sexually assaulted her while they were recording audio for the film Ishtar. On one occasion, Hoffman, she said, playfully invited her into his recording booth, where they were visible only from the chest up through its window. Kester said Hoffman invited her to sit with him in a recording booth where he pulled her close to him, pushed his hands into her trousers and stuck his fingers into her vagina.

"He put his fingers inside me", she recalled. I didn't know what to say, what to do.

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

Hoffman supposedly had a driver with a station wagon outside and offered to take her, and others, home.

Cori Thomas said her encounter with Hoffman happened when she was a 16-year-old high school student and aspiring actress. "I didn't know that I could say no, so I did it", she said. "And he kept telling me, 'I'm naked". Two of the women asked that their real or full names not be used.

She recounted to The Hollywood Reporter that he was openly flirtatious.

The alleged assault lasted approximately 15-20 seconds.

"I was humiliated", Thomas told Variety. "I was frozen. I was outside of my body", she said.

When the woman said she wanted to leave, Hoffman allegedly blocked the door and said, "Go home?" "I had never seen anything like it".

The actor has denied the claims.

Africa, for example, accounted for only about five percent of the total e-waste generated-roughly zero of which was recycled. Such data is also needed to better track illegal global movements of e-waste from richer to poor regions in the world.

Thomas explained that she didn't tell her parents what happened, only revealing the incident to her mother recently. She is also a mother to daughter Natasha, who is an author.

At one point, an incredulous Oliver said simply, "Oh, Dustin", when Hoffman asked why it had taken so long for his accusers to come forward with the allegations.

Carolyn said he gave her two options, and she chose oral sex.

In response, to Hunter's op-ed, Hoffman apologized and said the allegations were "not reflective of who I am".

Variety published the accounts from the three women, which the 80-year-old double Oscar winner's lawyer told the publication were "defamatory falsehoods".

In a contentious public discussion with HBO host John Oliver last week, the two-time Academy Award victor argued that he understood the day-to-day challenges that women face in a sexist society and that's why he chose to star in 1983's "Tootsie", playing a man who masquerades as a middle-aged woman.
