Five more women have come forward with new allegations of sexual misconduct against the Oscar-winning actor.
Dustin Hoffman faces more sexual misconduct allegations, including exposing himself to two teen girls years ago in New York, from five women whose stories were published by Variety and the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.
The new allegations include the daughter of the former UN ambassador from Liberia who told both trade publications that Hoffman showered then came out and dropped his towel in front of her in his hotel room when she was 16. Two other women told the Variety they were sexually assaulted, one while working on the film Ishtar in the 1980s, the other in the back of a station wagon.
Representatives for the 80-year-old actor, who has already been publicly accused of sexual assault and misconduct by three other women, did not immediately return BuzzFeed News’ request for comment on the new allegations. However, Hoffman’s attorney told Variety the accusations were “defamatory falsehoods.”
The ambassador’s daughter, Cori Thomas, told Variety she was friend’s with Hoffman’s daughter in high school when instead of her mom picking her up at a pre-determined restaurant, the actor suggested they leave a note with the maitre d’ saying they had instead gone to his hotel.
