Comedian John Oliver confronted Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman on stage about a sexual harassment accusation, offering an audience in New York on Monday a rare glimpse of a powerful man facing live questions about such an allegation.
Hoffman is among a number of rich and famous men who have been accused of sexual misconduct since October when Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual assault.
Hoffman’s accuser, Anna Graham Hunter, said in a Nov. 1 story in The Hollywood Reporter that Hoffman was flirtatious, grabbed her buttocks and talked about sex in front of her when she was a 17-year-old intern on a film set in 1985.
Reuters could not independently confirm Hunter’s accusations.
