'Last Week Tonight' Host John Oliver Confronts Actor Dustin Hoffman Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Since John Oliver "had" to ask Mr.Hoffman those questions about alleged sexual harassment, why didn't he ask Mr.Hoffman face to face backstage before the @Tribeca event?Why did he wait to get on stage & ask?Was he doing this for the Gram? Hoffman replied. "From a few things you've read you've made an incredible assumption about me".

During the discussion, Oliver accused Hoffman of only apologising after being encouraged to do so by his agent, and stressed that it was a conditional apology "if" there was anything he "might" have done, adding: "It didn't happen the way she reported".

Hoffman has now been confronted about the allegation by "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver at a panel event to promote the 20th anniversary of his film "Wag the Dog" in NY.

Interestingly, Wag The Dog, narrates the story of a spin doctor (Robert De Niro) from Washington, D C, who barely days before a presidential election, distracts the electorate from a sex scandal by hiring a Hollywood film producer, played by Hoffman, to construct a fake war with Albania. But during the later half of the panel, Oliver turned his attention to a recent accusation that Hoffman groped a young intern on the Death of a Salesman set in 1985. Hoffman continued to reiterate that working on a film for hours, they have to blow off some steam and that all that was said was merely harmless banter between "family".

Anna alleged Dustin "grabbed" her ass on the set and asked her to give him a foot massage and her claims led to him issuing a statement in which he said: "I have the utmost respect for women and feel awful that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation". I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am. And to break it up - actors, people on crews know these things - you do these things.

Trying to fully to understand how one's response could be a dismissal of the accuser is critical.

Oliver doesn't agree with Hoffman, either, saying, "I gotta say, I don't love that response either".

In an attempt to give context to the situation, Hoffman claimed that there were certain "stupid" things film industry people did in their professional settings. "But that's 40 years ago".

Rapaport isn't too concerned about the blowback he's getting online right now, either, just so long as you do not forget to address him with respect. "It doesn't feel self-reflective in the way that it seems the incident demands". But it's an act that often slides the focus away from the pain caused by the accused.

Allies can help victims of sexual harassment by speaking up for them. The easy way is not to bring anything up. 'Why [.] didn't I say something? He made the audience in NY see how a powerful man faces questions about such allegations, live.

There's a misperception out there that if you're not offended by something, then no one else should be, either.

"It's shocking to me you don't see me more clearly", he then said to Oliver. It's a civic responsibility of men to confront the person who was accused, instead of letting the accusation fester on its own.

During the Monday night exchange, Hoffman asked if Oliver believed what Hunter wrote.

He recalled: "I said when I came home to my wife that I never realised men were that were brutal, that men are that obvious".

"Yes", Oliver replied. "Because there's no point in [an accuser] lying".
