Dustin Hoffman accused of sex assault on girl, 17, on film set

Actor Dustin Hoffman arrives at the premiere of the feature film

Anna Graham Hunter claimed the now-80-year-old sexually harassed her while she was 17 years old, working on the set of "Death of a Salesman" as a production assistant in 1985.

Anna Graham Hunter was only 17 when she worked on Death of a Salesman, which starred Hoffman.

Hunter documented Hoffman's alleged treatment of her over five weeks on set in a diary, which she mailed to her sister at the time.

"I have the utmost respect for women and feel awful that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation".

In a guest column for the Hollywood Reporter, Hunter alleges that Hoffman used sexual language towards her in work, asked her to massage his feet, and groped her bottom. In one entry, she said he pestered Hunter about having sex - more specifically scolding her for not having sex over the weekend (to be clear, not with him, just in general).

Dustin Hoffman has been added to the list of Hollywood superstars accused of sexual harassment.

"I loved the attention from Dustin Hoffman".

Heidi Klum Replicates Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' Look For Halloween
The 44-year-old Project Runway host is loving Halloween and she will be back for with a Halloween Costume 2018. Heidi teased her look on her Instagram as fans eagerly guessed who or what she could be.

"One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time", she wrote. She said it took her years to come to terms with what happened.

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.

Hunter asserted that on set, she was told to overlook Hoffman's behavior by a superior, who asked her to "sacrifice" her morals for the good of the project. So you think I'm a sexist pig, huh?

Hunter says she has many fond memories from the set - including interactions with John Malkovich and Arthur Miller - and that initially, she welcomed the extra interest from Hoffman. It was worse than anything anyone has ever said to me on the street. She said she witnessed him talk about women's breasts and even got unwanted physical contact from the actor.

"Mostly though, my heart aches". Hoffman's representatives did not respond to requests for further comment and Reuters was unable to reach Hunter.

"I'm completely disillusioned. After Tootsie, I thought I wanted to marry him", she wrote.
