A Third Woman Has Accused Dustin Hoffman Of Sexual Misconduct

A third woman on Friday came forward to accuse Dustin Hoffman of sexual misconduct.

Like Anna Graham Hunter before her, actor Kathryn Rossetter wrote a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter detailing her experience working with Hoffman.

Rossetter alleged Hoffman repeatedly groped her, and even inserted his fingers inside her vagina, during the Broadway revival of Death Of A Salesman in 1983. The actress wrote she had to laugh on cue from off stage, which is where she said Hoffman would take advantage of her.

“He kept it up and got more and more aggressive. One night he actually started to stick his fingers inside me,” she wrote. “Night after night I went home and cried. I withdrew and got depressed and did not have any good interpersonal relationships with the cast.”

Rossetter also said during one performance he pulled up her dress and exposed her breasts to the crew.

Representatives for Hoffman did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but his attorneys put the Hollywood Reporter in touch with several people who worked on the show who said they didn’t recall any of the alleged behavior.

Stage manager Tom Kelly told the Hollywood Reporter, “Given my position, it’s insulting to say this kind of activity would go on to the extent of sexual violation.”

Rossetter also alleged Hoffman would grope her breast in pictures together and remove it before the flash, but she provided the Hollywood Reporter with one photograph showing Hoffman touching her.

“Caught as it is, it seems I’m complicit with the gesture,” wrote Rossetter. “I was not. Not ever.”

In an act of revenge she said she later regretted, Rossetter admitted to suddenly grabbing Hoffman’s crotch as they posed for a photograph, which was later published in Playboy.

Like Graham Hunter, Rossetter said Hoffman asked her for foot massages in his dressing room, but she says he repeatedly pressured her to work her hands up to his groin.

“Dustin would whisper, ‘higher, higher,’ trying to get me to move up his pants legs toward his genitals. I didn’t do it. I would stop at his calves,” she wrote.

Rossetter said she was left humiliated from her time working on the play.

“Along with the nightly sexual harassment, he eroded my confidence, my dignity,” she wrote. “He humiliated and demeaned me. He robbed me of my joy in the experience and he left dirty fingerprints on my soul.”

Last month, Graham Hunter alleged Hoffman sexually harassed her when she was a 17-year-old intern working on the 1985 television movie adaption of Death of a Salesman.

In response to Graham Hunter’s claims, Hoffman said, “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”

A second woman, Wendy Riss Gatsiounis, then said Hoffman propositioned her inappropriately during a business meeting in 1991.

At a film event earlier this week, Hoffman pushed back against comedian John Oliver when the HBO host began quizzing him about the sexual harassment allegations against him.

Here's A Timeline Of The Past Sexual Misconduct Accusations Against Bryan Singer

Egan claimed many of the incidents happened at the home of Marc Collins-Rector in Encino, California. In his complaint, Egan described one encounter where Singer coerced him into masturbation and receiving oral sex before Singer allegedly pulled Egan’s head down to forcibly perform oral sex on the director.

Egan also claimed in the lawsuit that he and Singer went on a trip to Hawaii where he said Singer again raped him. This claim is the reason Egan was able to file the lawsuit in Hawaii, but a deposition from Egan in 2003, uncovered by Singer’s legal team, had the actor saying under oath that he had never been outside the continental United States and therefore would be admitting to perjury if he continued to claim he went to Hawaii with Singer in the late ’90s.

In August 2014, Egan voluntarily dismissed his lawsuit “without prejudice,” allowing him the possibility to file again in the future on the same claims.

In 2015, Egan was sentenced to two years in prison over a fraudulent investment scheme.

Nicole Kidman And Reese Witherspoon Are Returning For “Big Little Lies” Season 2

Kidman and Witherspoon are also set to executive produce the next season, along with David E. Kelley.

The project will be directed by Andrea Arnold, who will also serve as an executive producer.

Not much is known about the plot details of the upcoming season, but Kelley will be writing all seven scripts.

HBO said the show will delve into the “malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.”

Patrick Stewart Says He Wants To Reprise His “Star Trek” Role If Tarantino Is Directing

“People are always saying to me, ‘Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?'” Stewart told the Hollywood Reporter on Friday. “I cannot think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about.”

“But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction,” Stewart continued.

“So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr. Tarantino, I would embrace it.”

Stewart said his admiration for Tarantino’s artistic skills is what makes the director his “first choice.”

“The one thing that characterizes all of his movies is that frame by frame, it always challenges, always demands your attention, always demands a very kind of open and generous response to what he does,” Stewart told the Hollywood Reporter.

“I also love his sense of humor as a filmmaker. So yes, he would be my first choice.”

Netflix Is Rebooting “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” With A New Fab Five

The original series ran for five seasons and followed five queer men known as the Fab Five. The original Fab Five — Ted Allen (Food and Wine Connoisseur), Kyan Douglas (“Grooming Guru”), Thom Filicia (“Design Doctor”), Carson Kressley (“Fashion Savant”) and Jai Rodriguez (“Culture Vulture”) — lent their individual expertise to lucky subjects (usually straight men) in order to help them improve their lives.

“Jane The Virgin” Star Justin Baldoni Says He Was Sexually Harassed By A Hollywood Producer

Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni has revealed he was sexually harassed by a Hollywood producer when he was a new actor in the industry, describing the incident as part of a system “broken” by sexual misconduct.

Baldoni, 33, made the revelation in an interview with Glamour magazine at the 2017 TEDWomen conference in New Orleans, where he delivered a talk entitled “Why I’m done trying to be ‘man enough.'”

The actor told the magazine that when he was around 21 he was propositioned by a man in a hot tub who told him he was an influential and well-connected Hollywood producer.

“He slowly started to try to get me to take off my pants because I had my bathing suit on and he was naked,” Baldoni said.

“And I remember the way he did it, using his power and what he does and who he knows as a way to make me feel less than,” Baldoni said. “Like I wasn’t going to be as successful as the other guys who’d been in the same hot tub with him, naked.”

The actor said he contemplated what to do for a “split second” before leaving.

“I could imagine how hard and painful that must be for a woman,” he said. I mean I was stronger and bigger than the guy, and [then there’s] the fact that no one is going to believe you if you’re a woman because your voice is already not heard.”

A number of people have come forward with stories about sexual harassment, misconduct, and assault in the entertainment industry since the allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein were published in the New York Times and the New Yorker in October. The #MeToo movement has inspired many women to speak up about their experiences, but Baldoni is one of the few men who have opened up about the subject matter. On Oct. 10, Terry Crews tweeted about a Hollywood agent groping him at an event last year, and on Oct. 29, Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Kevin Spacey made a sexual advance toward him when he was 14 years old and Spacey was 26.

Baldoni also said he has experienced sexual harassment from women in powerful positions.

“I’ve had my ass grabbed multiple times by powerful women,” he said.

Baldoni is currently developing an online talk show, Man Enough, which he said addresses “what it means to be a man today.”

He is also calling on other men to acknowledge past poor behavior and apologize to those who they’ve wronged.

“I think that’s when the other side of the ‘Me Too’ movement is ‘I’m Sorry,’” Baldoni said. “I guarantee at some point in my life there is a woman or two that I in some way made uncomfortable by saying something or doing something that was chauvinistic or sexist. There is 1 million percent probability that that exists, and all I can do is say, ‘I’m sorry, I was naive, I was young, I screwed up, and I’ll try to do better.’”
