Sexual woman on cam
'I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. It is not reflective of who I am,' he said in a statement.
Riss Gatsionius said it was her story and those of the dozens of women who have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein in the last month which prompted her to come forward.
A second woman has come forward to accuse actor Dustin Hoffman, 80, of sexual harassment.
Wendy Riss Gatsiounis, now 52, told Variety how she met Hoffman in 1991 when she was 26 and he was 53.
'He was openly flirtatious, he grabbed my a**, he talked about sex to me and in front of me. '''Yes.'' I was cracking up.''Smile if you're lying.'Another said: 'Today, when I was walking Dustin to his limo, he felt my a** four times.
'One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time,' she said.'Then he said, ''I'll have a hard-boiled egg … I hit him each time, hard, and told him he was a dirty old man.
But the good did not out weigh the negative experiences she encountered. So I told him that I didn't appreciate his wandering hands or his comments. In Hoffman's DVD commentary on The Graduate in a 1992 release, the actor explains how he pinched actress Katharine Ross' rear during her first screen test: 'I remember at one point, I pinched very gently Katharine's right- probably her right - buttocks as a way to help loosen us up.
I have no recollection of this meeting or of any of the behavior or actions described.' Riss Gatsiounis said Hoffman scolded Schisgal during their first meeting for asking her if she had a boyfriend and husband, allegedly telling him: 'Murray, shut up.
Don’t you know you can’t talk to women that way anymore? She said she was shocked by the sudden change in character.
Riss Gatsiounis has since found TV success as a writer and producer on shows including Reign and Genius Hoffman apologized on Wednesday after Graham Hunter's accusations emerged.
Hoffman has not commented on the second woman's claims.
Hunter detailed his shocking alleged behavior in The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
'The whole thing was just a source of torment for me.
