Writer Anna Graham Hunter has accused Oscar victor Dustin Hoffman of sexually harassing her when she was 17 years old, in a guest column she wrote for The Hollywood Reporter.

Anna has written a piece for the Hollywood Reporter detailing her experiences from the set, which are taken from copies of notes she wrote to her sister at the time.

"I hit him each time, hard, and told him he was a dirty old man", Hunter wrote. He looked at me, smiled at me, taking his time. "Then he said, 'I'll have a hard-boiled egg ... and a soft-boiled clitoris, '" Hunter recalled. "I left, speechless. Then I went to the bathroom and cried".

"I loved the attention from Dustin Hoffman", Hunter writes. It has touched me in the buttocks four times.

She admitted that she still enjoys watching his films and recently watched "All the President's Men" and texted her sister, "Is it weird that I find him kind of sexy in this after what he did?"

Actor Dustin Hoffman and wife Lisa Hoffman arrive at the Oscars at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 24, 2013 in Hollywood, California. He was advised to "sacrifice" its values.

Hoffman, who won the Best Actor Oscar for his roles in Kramer vs Kramer and Rain Man, told the Hollywood Reporter: 'I have the utmost respect for women and feel bad that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I'm sorry. This does not reflect who I am.

At the time, Hoffman was at the peak of his career, coming off critically acclaimed films like "Tootsie" and "Kramer vs. Kramer".

In response to Hunter's column, Hoffman issued an apology that was also a bit of a denial - or at least an attempt to apologize without directly addressing her charges.

'You pig.' She walked away.

The veteran actor is the latest male in Hollywood to be accused of acting inappropriately, with the scandal beginning last month (Oct17) as women came forward about allegedly suffering serious sexual assaults at the hands of producer Harvey Weinstein.

While Kevin Spacey was earlier this week accused of sexual harassing then-14-year-old Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp.
