Dustin Hoffman has yet again been accused of sexual harassment. This time, actor Kathryn Rossetter has alleged that he groped her repeatedly while they worked together on Death Of A Salesman. Earlier this week, she was questioned about his alleged behaviour by comedian John Oliver and Rossetter recounted a number of incidents, which also included Hoffman pulling up her clothing offstage.

She said, "One night, he started to stick his fingers inside me. Night after night I went home and cried. How could the same man who fought to get me the job, complimented my work, launched my career, and gave me the benefit of his wisdom as an actor, be this sexual power abuser?" Rossetter claims that whenever photos were taken of the pair, he would grab her breasts just before and then quickly remove it. "I tried to laugh it off and smack him. I begged him to stop it. To no avail."
