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."

Hoffman also said that the sexual harassment claim was 'not reflective of who I am'.

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.
