Sex charges: Its now Dustin Hoffmans turn

Los Angeles: Actor Kathryn Rossetter has alleged that Dustin Hoffman repeatedly groped her during the 1983 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman. Rossetter said she idolised Hoffman upon her initial casting opposite him... until he invited her to his hotel room.

"That was the beginning of what was to become a horrific, demoralising and abusive experience at the hands (literally) of one of my acting idols," Rossetter said. From there Hoffman would behave inappropriately during nearly every performance, at times grabbing her breasts or groping the inside of her thighs.
"Six to eight shows a week. I couldn't speak to him in the moment because I was on a live mic. He kept it up and got more and more aggressive....Night after night I went home and cried. I withdrew and got depressed and did not have any good interpersonal relationships with the cast."
