Sexgate: Actors Dustin Hoffman, Jeremy Piven and Andy Dick latest to be accused

Hellywood is being fumigated.

In the ongoing Sexgate that began after the New York Times — having known about it for years — outed now-disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sexual abuser and rapist, more actors are now accused.

(1) Dustin Hoffman

In an essay for The Hollywood Reporter published yesterday (Nov. 1, 2017), former production assistant Anna Graham Hunter describes how she was repeatedly groped and harassed by Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman while working as an intern on the 1985 TV movie adaption of “Death of a Salesman”. Hoffman also harassed another production assistant named Elizabeth, saying he wanted her “right breast” for lunch. At the time, Hunter was only 17, a senior in high school, while Hoffman was 48 years old.

According to Hunter, who had described what Hoffman did in a series of letters to her sister during her internship, Hoffman’s sexual harassment persisted over the course of days:

“He [Hoffman] was openly flirtatious, he grabbed my ass, he talked about sex to me and in front of me. One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time. Then he said, ‘I’ll have a hard-boiled egg … and a soft-boiled clitoris.’”

“When I was walking Dustin to his limo, he felt my ass four times. I hit him each time, hard, and told him he was a dirty old man. He took off his hat and pointed to his head (shaved for the part) and said, ‘No, I’m a dirty young man, I have a full head of hair.’”

“This morning when I asked Dustin what he wanted for breakfast, he said something that beat even his lows. It was worse than anything anyone has ever said to me on the street. It was so gross I couldn’t say anything. I just turned around and walked out.”

One day, when infamous womanizer Warren Beatty was visiting the movie set, Hoffman told Hunter: “So Anna, I get Warren tonight, you get him Tuesday?” followed by, the next day, “You might as well have undressed yourself. You were saying, ‘F—k me, f—k me, Warren.’”

Hoffman, now 80 years old, responded to Hunter’s accusations: “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.”

(2) Jeremy Piven

On Oct. 30, 2017, actress Ariane Bellmar tweeted that Jeremy Piven had groped her both on the set of the HBO TV show Entourage, as well as at the Playboy Mansion, which put the incidents sometime between 2004 and 2011.

According to Bellmar, Piven cornered her in his trailer on the set of Entourage and groped her breasts. When she tried to leave, he grabbed her butt. Bellmar said Piven also sent “abusive, explicit” texts to her phone.

In a statement to Deadline Hollywood, Piven, 52, denies everything:

“I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen. It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn’t happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard.”

HBO issued this statement:

“Today, via the press reports, is the first we are hearing about Ariane Bellamar’s allegations concerning Jeremy Piven. Everyone at HBO and our productions is aware that zero tolerance for sexual harassment is our policy. Anyone experiencing an unsafe working environment has several avenues for making complaints that we take very seriously.”

Piven is currently starring on CBS’s Wisdom of the Crowd. CBS also issued a statement to Deadline Hollywood:

“We are aware of the media reports and are looking into the matter.”

I’ve never liked Jeremy Piven, finding him to be a terrible actor. He was the weakest actor on the British TV series Mr. Selfridge, which was co-produced and broadcasted by PBS. I would cringe every time he opened his mouth.

(3) Andy Dick

The Hollywood Reporter reports, October 31, 2017, that actor and unfunny “comic” Andy Dick, 51, who has a history of exposing his genitals in public and on stage, was fired from the independent feature film Raising Buchanan following accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct on set.

According to two sources, Dick’s behaviors toward at least four members of the production included groping their genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions. It’s unclear if those involved were actors or crew.

Dick vehemently denied groping claims, but said he did make sexual advances and that it’s possible he licked people:

“I didn’t grope anybody. I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That’s my thing — I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It’s me being funny. I’m not trying to sexually harass people. I didn’t grab anybody’s genitals. Of course I’m going to proposition people. I’m single, depressed, lonely and trying to get a date. They can just say no, and they probably did and then I was done.”

Dick contends that part of his problem is he’s 51 and unaware of what the rules are for proper behavior:

“I don’t know the difference between sexual harassment and trying to get a date. In the ’70s, all the girlfriends I got was by kissing and licking their cheek. I don’t know anymore. There were beautiful women and beautiful guys on the set. I flirt with them. I might kiss someone on the set and ask them to go to dinner. They are the ones that took it south.”

  1. Are there any women accused of committing these crimes as well? I’m sure there are some, let’s wait and see!

    • Alma . . . . You have raised a very important question? Do we have any women out there who are guilty of the very same behavior? Judging from how many elementary teachers have been brought up on charges of “child molestation” it is not unheard of for women to commit these same acts.

      The other idea that came to mind is . . . are there any women who have laid accusations that have done so, clearly to prosper their careers via the increase in having their name in he public eye?

  4. I find it most interesting that now that these various men are caught up in their harassing ways . . . look at how “very sorry they are.” Kevin Spacey is now off to “rehab.” Tell me how can you rehab someone who is a sexual predator? I would say that is just for show. Look at the picture of Hoffman, tears in his eyes, is this how he felt when he was “doin’ his thing?”

    I think we will yet hear of more of this very same behavior. It is endemic in Hollywood. It has been around for decades, and once someone achieved a certain pinnacle of success . . . they felt entitled to play this game.

  5. I’m wondering if that behavior,whether Male or Female perp,is somewhat “mandatory” in the world of Hollyweird if one is to “succeed”. Those who won’t comply simply find it harder and harder to get Acting jobs….

  6. The first two men are Jews, and the third is famous for making anti-jew statements.

  7. Again, is anyone surprised it happened, especially RE: “Andy Dick”?

    “In the ’70s, all the girlfriends I got was by kissing and licking their cheek. I don’t know anymore.”
    Yeah, here’s the thing, in the ’70s, he was in grade school, possibly junior high. That sort of thing happens among the socially-ungraced & uncouth.

    Now, however, he’s in his 50s and should have been socialized as to the norms of interpersonal behavior: what is acceptable, and what is criminal… He’s been allowed to do his thing so long because folks simply didn’t smack him down (verbally, in writing, or physically) when they SHOULD have. Or when they did, he just skulked off temporarily until they let him back in the tent.

    I put him in the same boat as Kathy Griffin. They deserve each other.
    Just PLEASE, don’t reproduce…

  8. I am surprised to hear of Hoffman & Piven, but I am not surprised to hear of Dick (no pun intended). I remember seeing Andy Dick on television over ten years ago. Not only was he not funny, he impressed me as being mentally ill and dangerous the very first time I saw him. I reacted that way for one primary reason: I had a supervisor at the Board of Education here in New York who was the same way, only worse. Also, there was only one Andy Kaufman—and some people complained about him, also (although the complaints were not of a sexual nature).
    In “1984,” O’Brien tells Winston Smith, “in the future, the orgasm shall belong to the Party.” THIS is the direction we’re headed in. In other words, first come the allegations. Whether they’re true or not is not the point: The point is to blur the line between “bad” or “naughty” behavior and outright rape. That is the point. Once people can no longer tell the difference—despite their lust—the Sabbatean-Frankists have won a major victory.
    In plain English, it used to be all about dating and romance. Now it’s about IDEOLOGY: A college female co-ed has to justify her fornication on ideological grounds, disregarding the personal. Or to make the personal conform to the ideological.
    In other words, the Sabbatean-Frankists, Cabbalists and Aleister Crowley propaganda masters have taken sex beyond what Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione and Larry Flynt ever dreamed of.

    I am sure that Spacey, Hoffman and Piven were only thinking of their own gratification. (Only God Knows what Andy Dick was thinking of—the man belongs in a rubber room!) But this is how the Sabbatean-Frankists infiltrate: They infiltrated academia in order to take their Long March through our institutions. Now they are about to ideologicize sexual intercourse. And in order to do that, they have begun to take another Long March through our culture. Let these actors, let the Weinstein Brothers fall where they may: They have already prepared another generation to eat out of the palm of their hand.
    But this is to be expected: Either one serves God or the World. There is no other choice. Just like Margaret Sanger before them, they will enlist the ordinary Joe or Jane in the street—and wind up killing more people than any mad dictator could ever dream of.

    • Sad to say, you so on point Steven! There is no encouragement of love, romance, or commitment. We, in general, are witnessing the destruction of generations who will have no foundation for genuine happiness and meaning in their lives.

      I never heard of the latter two actors because I do not watch TV or go to movies anymore but as far as Hoffmann. I roll my eyes at: “It’s not reflective off who I am”. How many times have we heard that one??!! One thing I really tend to disagree on is the blame that all this perversion can be laid at the Sabbateans alone. It just looks to me like too many of these Jews are perverse creatures, and there is indisputably a fixation they have with despoiling the Shiksa as they say them selves and destroying things in general. Has anyone ever witnessed a people on all the planet who seem to be motivated by such hatred as this group?

      • I have learned an enormous amount about the Jewish mentality—the mentality that has been hyped in the public eye (and not of those Jews who are really good people)—by reading Dr. Henry Makow for the past seven years.
        And I am DONE with the anti-semitism canard: It’s not about us being “anti-semitic”: The Talmud, Zohar and Cabbala DRIP with hatred of anyone and anything Gentile. But, again, this is my point: Different Jews believe different things. Many good Jews value being Jews as an ethnic or a cultural thing and dismiss that hatred.
        They are a many-splintered group.

  9. I had never heard a word about Piven, so if true, that is surprising, but Andy Dick is another thing. He has been a vile nasty man forever. I always turn the station if he is on. He is revolting.
    Hoffman is disappointing. A man of his caliber had no need to be a barbarian.
    I remember when I got out of school in the sixties, it seemed to be open war on women. Men thought we were around for their amusement. I quit more than one job because of their actions. It would have done zip to complain then, it was still the ole boys network and they protected each other.
    I am glad, if true, that women are finally getting some justice.
    Oh how the mighty will fall.

  10. so far, all of the actors/directors in this ‘sex-gate’ are basically not in the prime of their acting or directing careers, same with these so-called ‘victims’ or ‘accusers’. it’s as though hollyweird is sweeping out the dirty ‘old’ man to bring in the fresh ‘new’ blood….I would not be surprised if they were to start a new campaign pushing hollyweird with a new face… ‘under new management’ …when in reality, hollyweird will simply go through it’s typical plastic surgery ‘transformation’ with the same evil underneath…maybe even pop out some christian movies to get our guard down and draw us back to their overpriced theaters and adult-themed previews…

    it’s interesting that no one has come forward about other, more popular, directors/producers who’ve had whispers of pedophilia and rape over the decades, or even, adults who were child actors and molested/raped on the proverbial “casting couch” to come forward and name high-level directors/producers…
    all of the accusers that have ‘come out’ sound like spurned and angry females who held a lot of anger from decades ago because they were ‘touched’…but nothing said about pedophilia, which is the nexus of hollyweird…
    hollyweird seems to be staying away from ‘pizzagate’ type issues…which makes me wonder, how scripted are these actors, um, I mean ‘accusers’?
