Actor Dustin Hoffman allegedly sexually harassed a 17-year-old girl in the 1980s, the victim wrote in an op-ed published Wednesday.

“He was openly flirtatious, he grabbed my ass, he talked about sex to me and in front of me,” wrote Anna Graham Hunter, 49, who interned as a teen on the set of the 1985 “Death of a Salesman” TV film.

“One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time,”  Graham wrote Wednesday in an op-ed for the Hollywood Reporter. “Then he said, ‘I’ll have a hard-boiled egg … and a soft-boiled clitoris.’ His entourage burst out laughing. I left, speechless. Then I went to the bathroom and cried.”

Hoffman also allegedly touched Hunter’s bottom four times once while walking to a limo. “I hit him each time, hard, and told him he was a dirty old man,” she wrote.

“He was a predator, I was a child, and this was sexual harassment,” Graham wrote.

The actor, now 80, apologized and stated: “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. It is not reflective of who I am.”

Hoffman is also known for his role in the films “Tootsie,” “Kramer vs. Kramer,” and “The Graduate.”
