New allegations of sexual misconduct emerge against Dustin Hoffman
Following a previous accusation of sexual misconduct reported by Anna Graham Hunter in a November 1 report, Hollywood actor Dustin Hoffman has come under fire with new allegations from actor Kathryn Rossetter. Rossetter claimed that the two-time Oscar winning actor repeatedly groped her while working on the Broadway production of “Death of a Salesman,” back in 1984. The accounts of the abusive incidents were reported by the Hollywood Reporter. She detailed how Hoffman pulled up her clothes offstage and exposed her body to the crew members. “One night he actually started to stick his fingers inside me. Night after night I went home and cried," she wrote. "How could the same man who fought to get me the job, who complimented my work, who essentially launched my career, who gave me the benefit of his wisdom as an actor, how could he also be this sexual power abuser?” Rossetter also claimed that he would grab her breast just before pictures were taken of the pair and then quickly remove it, as if it was a joke. “I tried to laugh it off, smack him and say witty, pointed things,” she wrote. “I begged him nicely with tears in my eyes to please stop it. To no avail.” She said: "I considered reporting him to Actors Equity. But I was cautioned by some respected theatre professionals that if I did, I would probably lose my job and, because he was such a powerful star, any hope of a career." Earlier, following Hunter’s allegations of sexual misconduct against Hoffman, comedian and HBO talk show host John Oliver confronted the Oscar winner on stage about the accusation. In response, Hoffman apologised for his actions to Hunter’s allegations. Hoffman is another name among a number of rich and famous men, who have been accused of sexual misconduct, following Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and  actor Kevin Spacey, among others.
