2nd actress steps forward to accuse Dustin Hoffman

2nd actress steps forward to accuse Dustin Hoffman

In early November, Anne Graham Hunter, a former production assistant on the TV film Death of a Salesman, alleged that Hoffman had groped her and made sexual remarks towards her (and similarly harassed other coworkers).

Ms. Rossetter said Mr. Hoffman repeatedly groped her backstage during performances of "Death of a Salesman" and slipped his hands underneath her slip as she waited in the wings for a cue to laugh. "One night he actually started to stick his fingers inside me", she wrote.

These events, including photo evidence of one incident where Hoffman is shown touching Rossetter's breast is detailed in her first person exposeé in The Hollywood Reporter. "Night after night I went home and cried". He also had a habit of groping women's breasts as they posed for photos with him; later, when Rossetter wrote a script that included that anecdote, Hoffman's office asked to see it, and Rossetter was so intimidated that she stopped working on the project entirely. Rossetter was on a live microphone, so she could never protest in the moment.

"When at last I found an opportunity, I pushed Dustin up against the wall screaming, 'F-k you! He was very skilled at dropping his hand just as the picture snapped to avoid it being recorded", she wrote.

Rossetter also accuses Hoffman inviting her to his hotel room and asking for a backrub and requesting foot rubs in his dressing room. Dustin arrived and took his seat behind me. There I am - big smile and my arm moving toward his with the intention to push it away.

Brailsford told jurors that he was terrified for the safety of officers and a woman who was in the hallway. Piccarreta also said he wasn't sure his client would be interested in trying to get his police job back.

All had begun well, Rossetter wrote, after Hoffman helped her get the role, her first on Broadway. "I was not. Not ever". Dustin had spread the word to the crew to come backstage at that time for a surprise.

Stage manager Tom Kelly said, "It just doesn't ring true". "Higher, higher", he would demand "trying to get me to move up his trousers legs toward his genitals".

Rossetter told her account in The Hollywood Reporter on Friday, which comes a month after actress Anna Graham Hunter alleged Hoffman groped her and made inappropriate comments when she was a 17-year-old intern on the set of the 1985 TV movie "Death of a Salesman".

Dustin Hoffman faces new allegations of sexual misconduct - this time from a former co-star who claims the actor groped her nearly nightly while they worked on Broadway together.

This week actress Ashley Judd, who was among the first women to accuse film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment was among the personalities featured on Time magazine's Person of the Year cover, as the magazine made a decision to mark the global movement against sexual assault triggered by women who stepped up and named their accusers. I would stop at his calves, ' Rossetter said. This is not the red badge of courage I have worn for 32 years. "I am a tough dame... now".
