Dustin Hoffman faces sexual misconduct claims from three more women

Dustin Hoffman faces sexual misconduct claims from three more women

Three women have come forward to accuse actor Dustin Hoffman of sexual misconduct, including one who said he exposed himself to her when she was in high school, Variety reports. The incident occurred in New York City after she, Karina and Hoffman had spent the day together.

But after dinner, she alleged that she was left alone in Hoffman's hotel room, waiting for her mother to collect her, when the actor disappeared into the bathroom before coming back and "standing there naked". When Karina went home, Hoffman took a shower in the hotel room, after which he emerged wearing just a towel, which he dropped.

"One of them said, "If this was your daughter, what would you do?' And I said, 'I would call the police", said Thomas, who is now a playwright.

Melissa Kester was a recent college graduate when Hoffman allegedly sexually assaulted her while recording audio for the film Ishtar. Kester, who was with a few others, including her boyfriend at the time, tried not to react. Kester, now a producer of corporate instructional videos, said that Hoffman called her into a recording booth, where he was recording a vocal track.

"He put his fingers inside me", she recalled. And the thing I feel most bad about is I didn't know what to do.

The third woman, who preferred to stay anonymous said she met Hoffman the during the production of "Ishtar" in NY, the outlet said. The third woman said she had a non-speaking role in one of the movie's nightclub scenes shot in NY at Kaufman Astoria Studios when she was 22 years old. And he just took his hand and stuck his fingers right up inside of me. They went to a hotel from which Thomas' parents were meant to collect her.

The allegations against the Oscar-winning actor follow those from Anna Graham Hunter, Wendy Riss Gatsiounis, and Kathryn Rossetter, who have all accused the now-80-year-old of unwanted sexual advances, with Hunter and Rossetter also accusing the actor of sexual assault.

"I'd never even seen a naked man before", Pauline said. I didn't know that I could say no, so I did it.

After the alleged incident, Hoffman allegedly began calling Kester repeatedly, until she demanded him to stop.

"This was at first one of the greatest days of my life", she said.

She said Hoffman, then 47, asked for a foot massage just like he did with Thomas, and once told her he'd like a "soft-boiled clitoris" for breakfast. "She kept asking me, and I was so mortified, I never said anything".

When asked if the incident in the station wagon was non-consensual, she answered, "Yes".

Carolyn (a pseudonym) was also slipped cash by Hoffman after an uncomfortable night that involved forced oral sex, she told The Hollywood Reporter. He brushed it off saying that such behavior is "not reflective of who I am". Hoffman just laughed after the encounter. After the wrap party for Ishtar, she and Hoffman got into the back of a station wagon. Hoffman appeared blindsided by Oliver's questioning at a panel hosted by Oliver.
