John Oliver reportedly noticed this and chose to bring up on Monday night during a 20th Anniversary screening of Wag The Dog at 92Y's Kaufmann Concert Hall in NY.
HBO host John Oliver hammered Dustin Hoffman on allegations of sexual harassment and the actor fired back with a ferocious defense as a seemingly benign screening became an explosive conversation about Hollywood sexual misconduct on Monday night. Levinson offered an answer, and then attention turned to Hoffman, who last month gave an apology following accusations that he had sexually harassed production assistant Anna Graham Hunter, then 17, during the making of Death of a Salesman in 1985.
"I have the utmost respect for women and feel bad that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation".
"It's 'not reflective of who I am.' It's that kind of response to this stuff that pisses me off", Oliver said.
"First of all, it didn't happen the way she reported", Hoffman replied, before suggesting that the apology he had made in response to the allegations had been misconstrued as an admission of guilt by the press.
Hoffman, however, denied having any memory of meeting Hunter, saying: "I still don't know who this woman is". "And that is "if" I did anything that was out of sorts, or if I embarrassed her, I apologize".
"I believe what she wrote, yes", the Last Week Tonight presenter replied. "If you've given no evidence to show it didn't happen, there was a period of time for a while when you were a creeper around women", he added. "It feels like a cop-out to say, 'this isn't me.' Do you see how this feels like a dismissal?" She claimed Hoffman asked her for foot massages, grabbed her butt, and was "openly flirtatious".
And when Hoffman responded "You weren't there", the journalist replied: 'I'm glad'.
According to the report, the tension grew as the discussion continued for around 30 minutes. You've put me on display here.
Oliver told the audience at the 92nd Street Y in NY that while he was concerned about ruining the evening for them, 'I can't leave certain things unaddressed. "The easy way is not to bring anything up". Why the...didn't I say something?
"It doesn't feel self-reflective in the way it seems the incident demands", Oliver said. "Move on. Let it go".
At one point, he asked Oliver, "Do you believe this stuff you read?"
