New sexual harassment allegations against Dustin Hoffman surface

  • 10/12/2017

The allegations against actor Dustin Hoffman on the set of Death of a Salesman continue to grow, with a new alleged victim coming forward.

Actress Katheryn Rossetter, 66, played Dustin Hoffman's mistress in the 1984 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman. She performed alongside Hoffman eight times a week for several months, but in a new essay for the Hollywood Reporter writes how Hoffman "humiliated and demeaned" her throughout the period.    

Rossetter claims the Rain Man actor refused to stop even when she tearfully pleaded with him to leave her alone. She says Hoffman groped her nightly between scenes, and squeezed her breast anytime they took pictures together.

She is the third woman in the past month to come forward and accuse Hoffman, 80, of sexual harassment.  She's the second from the set of Death of a Salesman, following an accusation from a woman who was an intern at the time.

Anna Graham Hunter, then 17, also penned an essay for the Hollywood Reporter, accusing Hoffman of repeatedly groping her rear, asking for foot massages and openly talking about sex to her.

On Monday (local time), TV personality John Oliver confronted Hoffman about the allegations against him at a film screening. Hoffman vehemently denied the claims during the heated argument.
