Dustin Hoffman Releases Statement in Response to Sexual Harassment Allegations from 1985

Dustin Hoffman has issued a statement following allegations that have arisen from back in 1985.

The young woman, Anna Graham Hunter, was interning on his Death of a Salesman set back in 1985 and alleges that Dustin grabbed her butt and said vulgar things to her in a piece published by THR. Anna allegedly documented her time on the set via letters to her sister, and she has published details from her day-to-day during production.

Dustin responded with a statement, saying, “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.”

    This is getting ridiculous.

    Over thirty years ago? Seems your daughter needs more than a shrink.

    My daughter wouldn’t be permanently traumatized because some famous actor grabbed her butt.

  • shoes4life

    Why don’t someone from higher up in HW just release a article stating that every man be it a exec, director, actor, or producer has in the last 60+ years in HW has said inappropriate things to women, made propositions for sex and or touched a woman’s butt or breasts. This conduct today is unacceptable and will not be tolerated going forward. HW in general apologizes for its past indiscretions. This way all these daily “I suddenly need today something” post can cease.

    She just wants to tarnish his legacy just for 5 minutes of fame. Enough with this witch hunt!

  • cafeast

    OH MUH GAAAAWWWD! I AM SOOO TRAUMATIZED!

    SOMEONE TOUCHED MY BUTT 3 DECADES AGO!

    SOMEONE OFFERED TO SLEEP W/ ME, THEN POLITELY BACKED OFF WHEN I SAID I WAS NOT INTERESTED!

    SOMEONE TOLD ME I WAS HOT AND WE’D MAKE A CUTE COUPLE!

    SOMEONE SET UP A PICNIC W/ CHAMPAGNE AND CANDLES ON A THEATER STAGE JUST TO CHARM AND COURT ME!

    I AM SO MUCH OF A VICTIM! PAY ATTENTION TO ME – 30 YEARS HAVE PASSED AND I AM STILL A NOBODY! MY STORY IS THE SAME AS SOME WOMAN WHO WAS BRUTALLY RAPED AND ASSAULTED BY COSBY OR WEINSTEIN!

    ATTENTION! I AM STARVED FOR IT! WE ARE SAVING THE WORLD HERE!

  • cafeast

    You are a fucking moron.
    Besides her daughter most likely can pay for her own shrink. Not every female is as useless as the ones you seem to have in your life, with no money and constantly asking daddy for some allowance.

  • Kelley

    you preyed on a child you sick bastard. she was a minor, so its harassment and preying upon a child. you are vile and done. disgusting

  • Kelley

    you are twisted and vile. i pray for any child of yours.

  • agus

    And I’m sure that most women all over the world at least once in her life behaved inappropriate towards a man – her friend or colleague.

  • Tania Alvarez-Hildebrand

    long ass carreers being shredded in minutes by older than shit people that have obviously moved on from whatever the hell it was they went through. This is getting absolutely ridiculous and pretty much hard to believe. I believe everyone is entitled to their say in these type matters, but when it’s been over 20 years and you’ve just now waited until it was convenient to say something about it, man, just keep quiet and go away. There are so many other important things going on in the world right now. I don’t have time for this bs (i’m a woman AND a minority, tvm!) I’d rather put a stop to terrorism in our nation than pay mind to age old allegations of sexual misconduct over social media. Just my 2 cents. And I will not apologize for my opinion. It is mine after all and I’m cool with anyone not being okay with it. It is YOUR RIGHT as well. Weinstein and others like him deserve jail for what they did. They also deserved to be outed for it long time ago as he was doing it probably up until the lid was blown on his awful conduct, but this kinda thing?

  • meme

    is that so? why, I’m so hurt. NOT.

  • shoes4life

    True.

  • hugomastoc

    I just feel like at some point in his life every man on this planet has had a gross/questionable behavior towards a woman. Especially if they have money/fame. So I’m very not surprised testimonies keep on coming.

    Desperate to save his career he says what every sexual assaulter says.

    SO why did it take this long to come to light, goddam money mongers and they couldnt succeed on their own so they need to dredge up bullshit from years ago .. it didnt make you stand up then, why all of a sudden is it such a priority now

  • Lo Mo

    … it still does not mean that it is acceptable.
    it was, maybe, 100 years ago, but not now.

    150 years ago it was normal and moral to marry your 14 year old daughter to her 60 year old uncle, but not anymore.
    times and morals are changing.

  • Lo Mo

    Because only NOW it is acceptable and not career damaging to come forward.

    Many many women have been complaining decades ago – and you know why noone heard about them? because they were pushed aside. noone will hear you, if you have no careers.

    Everyone knew about casting couch processes – yet noone did anything, because it was morally not that appalling. it is now. and sadly, only now.

  • Lo Mo

    “You are a fucking moron.” eloquent argument. attacking, when you have no more points to make.

    “her”..? how do you know “meme” is female..? are you the same person..?
    AHAHAHAHA

  • Lo Mo

    my daughter…? where did you get that from..?

  • Lo Mo

    i do hope you won’t have to go through that

    but: “oh enough already”..? enogh of what..? crimes..? yes. enough of exposing them..? hm.. NO.
    would you say that if a serial killer were caught too..? “oh enough already with the body count.. just stop at 3, this is not news worthy for me anymore.. who care if 3 or 33 were killed… I’m BORED to read about it…”

    you must be a wise one.

  • meme

    My own butt has been grabbed without my consent and I managed to live through it without being scarred for life. I also did not file a police report. I do not consider that assault. And if you do, it’s an insult to women who really are assaulted and/or raped.

    And I repeat; you are a fucking moron.

    So any accusation from 20 yrs ago is acceptable to get your name pushed forward? and a hell of a lot of the girls who are making these claims right now were never picked up again, possibly due to having no talent you think, has nothing to do with Dustin hoffman smacking a girls ass .. and if you want to see how things were back 20 yrs ago watch Mad Men, and thats EXACTLY how things were and accepted… this is FOR CASH.
