Dustin Hoffman was accused of sexual misconduct by three more women on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017.

Three more women have accused Dustin Hoffman of sexual harassment and one of them claims that she felt like she had "been raped" by the actor.

"He may have been being flirtatious, but it wasn't to the point of being obscene, because my boyfriend's there", she told Variety.

But the alleged harassment reportedly occurred when she visited Hoffman's apartment after they went to see a movie. Anna Graham Hunter provided contemporaneous pages of her journal from 1985 claiming Hoffman grabbed her rear end repeatedly when she was a 17-year-old production assistant.

Ms Thomas explained he had a shower after his daughter left, and came out wearing a towel, which he dropped in front of her, exposing himself. Riss Gatsiounis was then in her 20s and Hoffman, then 53, was coming off a second Academy Award win for "Rain Man".

One accuser, Cori Thomas, told the outlet that Hoffman, 80, exposed himself to her in a New York City hotel room in 1980 when she was 16 years old. He had also solidified his place in the film canon with starring roles in "The Graduate" and "All the President's Men".

Hoffman was in the midst of divorcing his first wife, Anne Byrne, and had been staying at a hotel nearby to the house that he had shared with Byrne, and where Karina still lived. After driving around in a cab, unsure what to do, the woman said she went to his building, where the pair had sex, Variety reported. Once at Hoffman's apartment, Pauline says Hoffman then unzipped his trousers and exposed himself to her. The other said she was sexually assaulted in the back of a auto and manipulated into a subsequent sexual encounter.

Thomas claimed that after putting his robe back on, Hoffman asked her to massage his feet and said, "I'm naked".

In Kester's case, the alleged incident occurred while Hoffman was recording a song for Ishtar. As they stood there, facing out as he recorded some singing, "He literally just stuck his fingers down my pants" and became sexually invasive.

- Pauline (whose last name was withheld) said she was 15 years and an aspiring model and actress when she met Hoffman at a Madison Avenue clothing store where she was working.

She claimed she had a bit part in the film and he made her feel important and desirable. He invited her over under the pretence of seeing the puppy he said he bought for his daughter. She said she was "saved" by the phone ringing to let her know her mother had arrived to pick her up.

"One of them said, "If this was your daughter, what would you do?' And I said, 'I would call the police", said Thomas, who is now a playwright.
