A woman who once worked with Dustin Hoffman on Broadway reveals shocking details that the actor groped her almost every night. Kathryn Rossetter, who starred in “Death of a Salesman” alongside Hoffman in the 1980s, recalled in a first-person piece for The Hollywood Reporter. She claimed Hoffman would slip his hands under her clothing when she was in the wings of the stage nearly every time they acted out a particular scene.
“He kept it up and got more and more aggressive,” Rossetter wrote in the article. “One night he actually started to stick his fingers inside me. Night after night I went home and cried. I withdrew and got depressed and did not have any good interpersonal relationships with the cast.”
Rossetter also accused Hoffman of inviting her to a hotel room during the first week of rehearsal. She thought it was odd that he even had the room since he lived only about a mile away. She says Hoffman claimed he used the hotel room to take naps, relax or rehearse his lines.
Rossetter writes that Hoffman would take photos with her and "grab my breast just before they snapped the picture and then remove it." She often didn't notice in time, which she says made it seem like she was "complicit with the gesture. I was not. Not ever."
