A week after a former production assistant accused Dustin Hoffman of sexual harassment in 1985, another decades-old accusation resurfaced.

In a 1979 interview with a famous magazine, actress Meryl Streep had claimed that Dustin Hoffman touched her inappropriately on their first meeting. “He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin — burp — Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast,” Streep had said in the interview, adding, “What an obnoxious pig, I thought.”

 

However, according to the latest reports on EOnline.com, the 38-year-old article is not an “accurate rendering of that meeting.” Meryl’s rep clarified, “There was an offense and it is something for which Dustin apologised. And Meryl accepted that.” 

The resurrection of the Meryl’s old claim comes on the heels of a woman coming forward last week to accuse Hoffman of sexually harassing her when she was 17 and the actor was 47.
