Dustin Hoffman has been accused of exposing himself to a 16-year-old woman in the latest sexual misconduct allegations facing the actor, according to Variety.

Variety on Thursday also reported that Hoffman is facing claims from two other women that he sexually assaulted them.

Three additional women earlier this year claimed that Hoffman, 80, sexually harassed them during interactions decades ago.

Hoffman’s attorney, Mark A. Neubauer of Carlton Fields Jordan Burt, on Thursday called the latest round of accusations against the celebrity “defamatory falsehoods.”

Cori Thomas on Thursday said, however, that she met Dustin Hoffman via his daughter Karina Hoffman in 1980 when she was an underage teenager.

Karina Hoffman and Thomas attended the United Nations International School in New York City together at the time.

Dustin Hoffman ultimately hosted Thomas at his hotel room after the trio had dinner one evening in 1980.

“I was just sitting there waiting for my parents,” Thomas recalled after Karina Hoffman’s departure.

“He came out of the bathroom with a towel at first wrapped around him, which he dropped,” she continued. “He was standing there naked.”

“I think I almost collapsed, actually. It was the first time I had ever seen a naked man. I was mortified. I didn’t know what to do.”

Thomas noted that her mother soon arrived to pick her up at the hotel, ending her encounter with Dustin Hoffman.

Melissa Kester, meanwhile, said she met Dustin Hoffman while the actor was working on the 1987 movie “Ishtar.”

“He’s hugging me while he’s singing,” she said of Dustin Hoffman’s behavior with her while recording audio for the film.

“And as he’s doing that, he literally just stuck his fingers down my pants,” Kester added. “He put his fingers inside me.”

“I thought, ‘Oh my God.’ I felt like I’d been raped. There was no warning. I didn’t know he would do that.”

A third woman – who wished to remain anonymous – additionally accused Hoffman of sexually assaulting her during his time working on “Ishtar.”

“There are people inches from us,” she said of a car ride they took together. “And he just took his hand and stuck his fingers right up inside me.”

The anonymous woman admitted that she agreed to have sexual intercourse with Hoffman later the same evening after he first advanced on her without permission.

Scores of women accused Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct earlier this year, prompting a global reckoning on the issue.

Multiple men of power have since faced similar allegations across fields including entertainment, politics, the media and sports.
