John Oliver Grilled Dustin Hoffman On Sexual Harassment Allegations – Video

John Oliver

Dustin Hoffman was accused by two separate women of sexual harassment dating back to 1985 and 1991 — a teenage intern on the TV movie, Death of a Salesman, and a 20-something playwright, respectively.

While hosting a 20th Anniversary screening of Wag The Dog hosted by the Tribeca Institute in New York City on Monday night, John Oliver took it on to himself to call Hoffman out on the rumors.

“This is something we’re going to have to talk about because…it’s hanging in the air,” Oliver said, before grilling Hoffman in what Washington Post reporter Steven Zeitchik later called a “testy five minute” exchange. At one point, when Hoffman had apparently grown visibly uncomfortable he said to Oliver, “you weren’t there,” to which the Last Week Tonight host replied, “I’m happy I wasn’t.”
