Why yes, I did try to find the creepiest picture possible of Dustin Hoffman in a pervert-looking trench coat for this story.
Here’s some news that will no doubt have John Oliver holding a Tootsie DVD to his ear, like “Sorry, what was that you said about having incredible respect for women?” Yesterday Variety published the stories of three more women who claim to have been sexually harassed and assaulted in the 80s by Dustin Hoffman.
One of the recurring things said during this late-in-2017 Sexual Misconduct Creepocalypse we’re experiencing has been that it’s an issue men need to address. Last night, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver moderated a 20th anniversary screening event for Wag the Dog in NYC. So John, a man, decided to address the recent allegations of sexual harassment against Dustin Hoffman. Except that’s not a conversation that Dustin wanted to have with an audience full of people.
After the Harvey Weinstein dam broke, sexual misconduct accusations about Hollywood’s powerful men gushed everywhere. Two women have come forward saying Dustin Hoffman sexually assaulted them, including one who was only 17 when he was 47. It made a few news outlets run with an old 1979 Time interview where Meryl Streep said put his hand on her breast, because that’s totally a normal and non-creepy way to greet a possible co-worker.

For the past several weeks, I’ve woken up and thought: “I wonder who is going to get accused of sexual harassment today?“.

And now another accuser has come forward.
The annual Cannes amfAR Gala for AIDS research was held last night, and it’s an event that truly brings out the best attempts in fashion. This is what Nicki Minaj looked like, and I love it all. The Morticia Addams hair paired with the un-dead boudoir eleganza from Roberto Cavalli and the ten pounds of diamonds makes her look like Vampira’s money-hungry hustler sister Scampira. Watch out, rich dudes – she’ll suck the life out of you and your bank account!
Dustin Hoffman Allegedly Went Full-Asshole On Meryl Streep During The Filming Of “Kramer Vs. Kramer”
Vanity Fair recently published a piece about the making of Kramer vs. Kramer adapted from Michael Schulman’s upcoming biography about acting legend and 4,973-time Oscar nominee Meryl Streep titled Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep. Even though Kramer vs. Kramer won Meryl her first Academy Award and introduced her to mainstream Hollywood success, filming it was apparently a fucking headache, figuratively and literally. According to Michael Schulman, Dustin Hoffman took the art of method acting to a dark place by slapping Meryl Streep on the second day of shooting.
