Dustin Hoffman faces sexual misconduct claims from three more women

The actor has denied the claims.

Dustin Hoffman has denied new allegations of historic sexual misconduct that have emerged from three women.

Legal representatives for the Oscar-winning screen icon described the accounts as “falsehoods” after they were published in the latest edition of Variety.

The allegations faced by Hoffman date back to the 1980s – with one accuser, Cori Thomas, being an old friend of his then-teenage daughter.

Ms Thomas alleges that she was only 16 years old when she found herself alone in Hoffman’s hotel room. He emerged naked from the shower and allegedly asked her to massage his feet before she promptly left the room.

The second allegation has been made by Melissa Kester, who worked with the actor as he recorded audio for infamous 1987 box office flop Ishtar.

Kester claims that she was groped by Hoffman in a control room while her boyfriend stood only feet away.

The final allegation has been made by an anonymous woman who says that Hoffman assaulted her in a car heading back from the Ishtar set, before he later pressured her into sex.

The latest claims come after the 80-year-old actor was previously accused by assaulting teen actress Anna Graham Hunter on the set of Death Of A Salesman in 1985.

Responding specifically to Hunter’s claim, Hoffman said that he was “sorry” and described the alleged incident as “not reflective of who I am”.

He was later the subject of a second sexual harassment allegation, made by Wendy Riss Gatsiounis who claimed that Hoffman propositioned her during a pitch meeting in 1991, which he subsequently denied.

Earlier this month, Hoffman was tackled on the allegations by John Oliver at a panel and screening of 1997 film Wag The Dog, with the actor accusing Oliver of making a “very quick judgment.”
