"And he kept telling me, 'I am naked". I thought, 'Oh my God.' I felt like I'd been raped.

One allegation from playwright Cori Thomas says Hoffman exposed himself to her in a NY hotel room when she was 16.

Melissa Kester said that afterwards she "sat in the bathroom crying". When he came out, he was wearing just a towel and exposed himself to her.

Ms. Thomas, the daughter of the Liberian ambassador to the United Nations at the time, said she did not tell her mother what had happened until decades later. I didn't know what to do. "I was frozen. I was outside of my body". She said she told close friends and a family member some years later.

Two other women said Hoffman assaulted them on the 1987 movie Ishtar by inserting his fingers inside them.

He began to hug her while he was singing, she said, visible to the other men through a window only from the chest up.

"I realize now, that the reason this continued to happen to others, was because of my silence", she wrote, "and I feel guilty about that but I hadn't even processed how badly this shamed and hurt me".

"There were people there", she said.

The reports follow an essay for The Hollywood Reporter last month by Anna Graham Hunter, who said that the actor groped her and used sexually explicit language in front of her during the making of the 1985 television film "Death of a Salesman", when she was a 17-year-old production assistant.

The woman says Hoffman later asked her to come to his apartment, where they had intercourse.

According to Variety, "Asked if she would describe the encounter in the station wagon as nonconsensual, she said 'yes.' Asked if she would describe the encounter at the San Remo as such, she said, 'I don't know'".

Kathryn Rossetter, who co-starred with Hoffman in "Death of a Salesman" on Broadway in 1983, came forward with an account in The Hollywood Reporter on December 8.

Hoffman's attorney, Mark A. Neubauer, said in a letter to Variety's owner, Penske Media Corp., that the accusations against the actor in the Variety story are "defamatory falsehoods".
