STORY: Hollywood continues to reel over sexual misconduct allegations - the latest aimed at Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman. In an account published in the Hollywood Reporter, Anna Graham Hunter alleged that Hoffman made vulgar remarks and jokes at her expense while she was working as a 17-year-old production assistant on the set of the 1985 TV film "Death of a Salesman." Hoffman responded to the allegations in a statement saying - "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." Reuters could not independently confirm Hunter's allegations. A number of allegations of sexual harassment and assault have been made in recent months against some prominent Hollywood men, including producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey.
