Author Accuses Dustin Hoffman of Sexually Harassing Her When She Was 17

A Los Angeles-based writer is accusing actor Dustin Hoffman of sexually harassing her three decades ago, when she was 17, The Hollywood Reporter reported Wednesday. Anna Graham Hunter said the actor flirted with her, grabbed her buttocks, and talked about sex in front of her when she was a production assistant intern on the set of the 1985 film, Death of a Salesman. “One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time. Then he said, ‘I'll have a hard-boiled egg… and a soft-boiled clitoris.’ His entourage burst out laughing. I left, speechless,” Hunter wrote in a guest column. “Then I went to the bathroom and cried.” Hoffman apologized for his behavior in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation,” Hoffman said. “I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”
