Meryl Streep Says Resurfaced Interview About Dustin Hoffman is Not Accurate

Meryl Streep is coming to Dustin Hoffman‘s defense after an old interview surfaced where she said he touched her breast.

In a 1979 interview with Time, Meryl reportedly said that her Kramer vs. Kramer co-star Dustin groped her the first time they met.

“He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin — burp – Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast. What an obnoxious pig, I thought,” Meryl said during the interview.

Meryl says that Dustin apologized for the incident and the quote was not an “accurate rendering of that meeting.”

“There was an offense and it is something for which Dustin apologized. And Meryl accepted that,” her rep told E! News.

    This is the SECOND time she has defended one of these monsters.

    Not one word has been said about Woody Allen. He married his adopted step daughter and had an intimate relationship with her while she was in her late teens. That is messed up…

    People in Hollywood live so far above the clouds I really don’t care what they do to one another. They are all so self absorbed. Meryl Streep is one of the worst. She is all about herself and her status. She is so over-rated.

    I’d hardly call Dustin Hoffman a monster. Jeesh, people do stupid things some times. He apologized. What more do you want?

  • parisjok

    he has done much much more than this you can bet on it. great he said sorry but for him do do something like that first time meeting her shows the kind of total disrespect he had for females or maybe just some of the actresses he came in contact with.

    he has a huge problem with being so short and non attractive but he is talented in the acting department

  • cafeast

    Maybe he never made a move on his actresses. He and Diane Keaton legit dated.

  • cafeast

    Why shouldn’t she? It is this Hollywood that crowned her “The Queen of Movies’ and made her ascend the throne. This so called racist, ageist, sexist industry. She never suffered shit. Of course she’ll defend the system that treats her like royalty.

  • Penny Dreadful

    Good point! There’s something very arrogant and elitist about her protestations.

  • cafeast

    You defend him b/c he is old, midgety, and jew-y in a grandfather-ly sort of way. In reality, he is uglier on the inside than on the outside. Which is pretty gross. Did you read the clitoris story?
    That is a horny jew leprechaun.

    You’re a bigoted moron.

    I think we should separate assault, and rape, from a guy trying to grab your ass, or telling you that your jugs are big. This mess is getting out of hand. What Spacey and Wienstein did is wrong. But everyone else, I dont know.

    I tried to grab hoes asses all the time as a younger man, and they either let me do it, or get mad, and we have a spat. Then after that, we are cool.

    We taking it too far

  • cafeast

    Yeah but telling some 17 year old they want a boiled egg and heir soft boiled clitoris for breakfast as a 50+ year old man is gross.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Cant argue this one Lol

  • cafeast

    And you are a hot tranny mess, but I have too much decency to point that out.
