Dustin Hoffman's Alleged Pickup Line Is A Generous D- : "I'll Take A Hard Boiled Egg and a Soft Boiled Clitoris"

Cannes Film Festival 2008 - Kung Fu Panda Photocall

Page SixDustin Hoffman has been accused of sexually harassing a former production assistant when she was 17 years old.

Anna Graham Hunter was working on the 1985 TV movie adaption of “Death of a Salesman” when she said the alleged sexual harassment occurred.

“When I was a senior in high school in New York City, interning as a production assistant on the set of the ‘Death of a Salesman’ TV film, he asked me to give him a foot massage my first day on set; I did,” Hunter wrote in an essay for The Hollywood Reporter, released Wednesday. “He was openly flirtatious, he grabbed my ass, he talked about sex to me and in front of me. One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time. Then he said, ‘I’ll have a hard-boiled egg … and a soft-boiled clitoris.’ His entourage burst out laughing. I left, speechless. Then I went to the bathroom and cried.”

The actor responded to Hunter’s claims, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible 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.”

Today’s alleged Hollywood creep is – spins wheel containing names of anyone who has ever been in a movie or produced a movie or worked on a movie set  – Dustin Hoffman!

A former production assistant from the TV movie “Death of a Salesman” is alleging that Hoffman got suuuuuuuper weird with her back on set in 1985, dropping that soon to be infamous boiled egg line, constantly asking about her sex life, grabbing her ass all the time, and even allegedly trying to insinuate she would take turns having sex with him and Warren Beatty.

However, days after Hoffman’s mea culpa, when Warren Beatty visited the set, Hunter claims that Hoffman told her, “So Anna, I get Warren tonight, you get him Tuesday?” followed by, the next day, “You might as well have undressed yourself. You were saying, ‘F—k me, f—k me, Warren.’”

Hoffman’s response was, interestingly, not a denial, but an immediate apology.

The actor responded to Hunter’s claims, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible 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.”

Doesn’t take away from it all happening, but it’s refreshing to see something other than blind denial and victim blaming as a first instinct.  I guess when you’re 80 (!!!) years old it’s not worth fighting that time you dropped a “soft boiled clit” line on a girl 3 decades ago.   Also it’s encouraging to see that he didn’t come out as gay to explain all of it.

I mean at this point if you’ve ever had your name featured in the credits of something that has been viewed on a screen, it’s a surprise if you HAVEN’T been a sexual harasser at some point, the way things are going.
