LOS ANGELES, Nov 7 — Amid all the sex scandals in Hollywood at the moment, Meryl Streep is clarifying comments about Dustin Hoffman groping her in a resurfaced interview.
In the 1979 interview with Time, Meryl reportedly claimed that Hoffman groped her the first time they met.
“He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin — burp — Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast. What an obnoxious pig, I thought,” Meryl said in the interview.
The interview resurfaced as Hoffman has been accused of sexually harassing a woman when she was 17 and he 47. Since then, another woman has come forward with similar claims.
Hoffman never addressed Streep’s claims publicly but her rep told E! News that the quote was not an “accurate rendering of that meeting”.
“There was an offense and it is something for which Dustin apologised. And Meryl accepted that.”
