Dustin Hoffman Accused Of Sexually Harassing And Assaulting Teen Intern
Another white man has boarded the Weinstein Express to Predatorville.
Legendary “Rain Man” actor Dustin Hoffman has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old intern named Anna Graham Hunter.
Hunter published an article in The Hollywood Reporter yesterday that recounts the abuse she suffered 30 years ago on the set of Death Of A Salesman at Hoffman’s horny lil’ hands.
“Dustin Hoffman sexually harassed me when I was 17.” Then I give the details: When I was a senior in high school in New York City, interning as a production assistant on the set of the Death of a Salesman TV film, 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. 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.” His entourage burst out laughing. I left, speechless. Then I went to the bathroom and cried.
In response, Hoffman offered particularly impotent mea culpa:
“I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”
How is it that these Oscar award-winning actors completely incapable of at least ACTING like they are sorry or remorseful for their actions??? These apologies are soulless, disingenuous, robotic and not the least bit contrite. It’s disgusting.
