She’s never one to shy away from making a provocative statement.

And Nicki Minaj made sure to send her sizeable fan base into a frenzy on Thursday night, when she shared a topless image of herself on Instagram with only silver tasselled nipple pasties protecting her modesty.

The 35-year-old high velocity rapper turned the heat up even further, when she shared a video of herself licking her own nipple as she relaxed behind the scenes during her photoshoot for Paper magazine.

The Super Bass hitmaker struck a seductive pose while wearing only pink high-waisted bottoms, which was cinched at the waist with a glittering band.

With her long raven tresses cascading down her back, the star upped the glamour in the eye-catching shot, swearing a sparkling array of diamonds, including dropping bracelets and earrings as well as a matching choker.

Aside from some very long lashes, it was somewhat difficult to tell how much makeup she was wearing, as she opted to overlay a mouse filter for a comedic effect.

She seemed to be having fun with said filter, at one point even sticking her tongue out at the camera.

Her caption included a somewhat cryptic message, which seemed to be recruiting for some sort of secret endeavor.

‘Attention: I need 20-25 bad btchs for #PrettyGang’ she started, ‘can’t tell you why. Criteria to be gang are as follows: INTELLIGENT, INTERESTING, TALENTED, BAD AF, BOUT DAT PAPER. I think some of the girls I follow on here would be perfect. I need your help. Who should be gang?’

Meanwhile, Nicki has been busy as of late, and just released a new music video with Cardi B, 25.

The duo looked ready to race in the new music video from Migos for their song MotorSport, released on Thursday afternoon.

The buxom beauties writhed around futuristic sets wearing vibrant leather and plastic outfits for the video shared on YouTube.

Kate Upton has opened her wedding photo album to share the gorgeous details of her Italian wedding.

The 25-year-old model married her baseball player husband, Justin Verlander , 35, last month.

The lavish wedding took place in Tuscany, Italy.

And Kate wore not one but TWO gorgeous white wedding dresses – one for the ceremony and another for the reception.

Talking to Vogue , Kate revealed that they chose the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort in Tuscany because Italy was one of the first places they went on holiday together.

“It was really important to Justin and me that it feel like we were on vacation with our closest friends and family,” Kate said.

And the couple planned a unique event with an entire afternoon dedicated to games including a ping-pong tournament and “an epic water balloon fight” before the wedding.

But it wasn’t all fun and games, the couple also organised a red party for the rehearsal dinner – asking their guests to dress in red.

There was an “open mic for toasts” and the couple’s mums prepared a slideshow of their baby photos.

The ceremony itself took place the next day above the garden at the Rosewood resort.

“We found a beautiful corner of paradise that Tuscany Flowers helped transform into our ‘secret garden,'” Kate said.

And the model worked with Valentino to create her “dream dress”.

She said: “For my ceremony dress, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic team at Valentino.

“They are the best at creating delicate, beautiful lace and details, and their Italian heritage kept the fashion and feel authentic to our venue.”

After dinner and their first dance to Michael Bublé’s “Everything,” Kate got changed into her second dress of the evening.

She wore a sequined gown with a plunging back – opposite of her traditional ceremony gown.

“I wanted a dress that I could have fun in, but that still brought the glamour,” she said of the dress she created with Christy Rilling Studio.

Later on in the evening, Kate surprised Justin with a fireworks display and they cut their cake.

Meanwhile it’s said the bridesmaids wore different blush coloured gowns.

The ceremony was held at an old medieval church on the top of a hill amidst ancient ruins and overlooking the Montalcino valley and vineyards.

The flower arrangements saw deep red and blush flowers and olive branches mixed in to continue the authentic Italian theme.

After a simple 30 minute ceremony, everyone walked back down the stairs and to a reception at the restaurant on the same property.

Justin’s team just won Game 7 in the World Series, and it was first suggested the pair would tie the knot in mid-November.

In December 2016, as wedding prep was in full swing, the Sports Illustrated model gushed about engaged life, saying: “It’s a lot of fun. I mean, in a lot of ways it is the same.

“But now we’re planning out life together.”

August Ames Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand actionConcerns are being raised over the health of vulnerable women who work in the porn industry

Fears are being raised over the deaths of three porn stars in recent weeks, at least two of whom are thought to have taken their own lives.

Shyla Stylez and August Ames were both found dead within the last five weeks, and today it was reported that adult entertainment star Yuri Luv’s lifeless body was discovered by her landlord at home.

The tragic deaths of these three women is being touted by some fans as an indication that young performers are not being given the help and support they need by the porn industry.

Canadian actress Shyla Stylez – real name Amanda Friedland – was 35 when she was found unresponsive at her mum’s home in British Columbia on November 9.

She had reportedly died in her sleep, and as yet, no further details of her death have been released.

Her long-time publicist James Bartholet told Canadian media: “We have so many great memories of working with her and hanging out with her and we want to hold onto and remember the good times.

“We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Shyla and our condolences go out to her family in this very sad time. She went quietly with no pain and we know she’s in a better place.”

Less than a month later, August Ames was found hanging in a public park, 20 minutes from the home she shared with husband Kevin Moore in California.

The 23-year-old had been openly discussing her depressive state and had been harshly trolled hours before her death by Twitter followers furious for a decision she’d made about a porn scene.August Ames 1 1 What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand actionAugust took her own life earlier this month (Image: Twitter)

August Ames contacted her good friend shortly before taking her own life to give her advice on handling depression.

Keisha Grey, who like August works in porn, shared a screengrab of their brief message conversation days after her friend’s lifeless body was found in a park.

The cause of August’s death was confirmed as asphyxiation due to hanging after friends revealed she had been suffering from depression.

August – real name Mercedes Grabowski – had chatted over message to Keisha in November, a month before she committed suicide.August Ames 3 1 What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand actionAugust had reached out to her friend a month before her death (Image: Instagram/msmaplefever) August and Keisha What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand actionAugust and Keisha in happier times (Image: @littlekeish/Twitter)Keisha What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand action

In the sweet messages, August revealed she’d had experience of feeling down and told her friend she was there for her.

“Hey I hope you’re doing well!” the 23-year-old star messaged her friend just after midnight on November 8.

“I’ve been depressed and it seems like ppl are being d***ks and I just wanted to let you know that you can talk to me if you ever want to.”twitter What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand action

Keisha had replied minutes later, telling August: “That was so sweet thank you.”

Keisha also shared a snap of the two pals smiling into the camera.

“Reast easy August Ames thank you for being there for me during that hard time,” she captioned it.

August’s friends, family, colleagues and co-stars were left reeling by her shocking death last Tuesday (December 5).

She had been the subject of cyber bullying just hours before taking her own life, after tweeting that she’d refused to take part in a porn scene that involved her having sex with a male performer who also slept with men.

August was branded a “homophobe” on Twitter because of her decision, and was forced to defend herself by telling critics she herself was bisexual.

But she made no mention of the nasty comments – including one instructing her to “swallow a cyanide pill” – in the suicide note she left in her car.

The note reportedly contained an apology to her family but nothing about the tweets.

An investigation by the Ventura County Medical Examiner found no trace of drugs or alcohol at the scene or in August’s car, although toxicology tests are still ongoing.

The star, whose real name was Mercedes Grabowski, had turned down a sex scene with a ‘crossover’ actor – someone who has unprotected sex with both men and women – but critics branded her homophobic for her refusal.

She’d tried defending herself by saying she herself was bisexual, but that only sparked more bullying comments.

She was found dead in the early hours of December 5. Toxicology tests are still ongoing, but there was no sign of alcohol or drugs at the scene or in her car, where she’d stashed a suicide note apologising to her parents.

The two worrying deaths were followed this week by the tragic loss of Yuri Luv, also known as Yurizan Beltran, at the age of 31.

It was thought she’d committed suicide by overdosing on pills.Yuri Luv 1 1 What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand actionYuri Luv died this week (Image: Twitter) Yuri Luv 2 1 What is killing our porn stars?: After August Ames, Yuri Luv and Shyla Stylez are found dead of suspected suicide, fans demand action

Her death was confirmed by Dan Hogue, director of business development for PornStar Platinum, according to IBT .

He said: “It is with a heavy heart I write this. The entire PornStar Platinum family is in mourning at the news of the loss of one of its family members.

“Yuri was found today at the age of 31. She was always kind to me and we will miss her.”

She was reportedly discovered by the owner of the house she rented in Bellflower, California.

Her colleague Nickey Milo said: “Beltran died of an apparent drug overdose… There were pills found near the bed.”

A couple of weeks before her death, Yuri had spoken on Twitter about needing a hug.

Other porn stars say they need support (Image: Instagram)

The death of the three women has shocked and angered those in the porn industry, with many performers stepping forward to name the problem.

Shy Love – a friend of Yuri – said female porn stars are routinely disrespected because of their occupation.

“You know what sucks the most. You just want to be sad and morn someone and ur stuck still doing social media like life did not matter,” she tweeted.

“Being a pornstar is a harder job them most can imagine and I wish that porn girls got way more respect for their jobs and hard work.”

Another adult entertainer, Summer Brielle, tweeted that porn stars need a good support network to stay strong.

“I’m very very blessed to have him [my partner] and my family stand by me. It’s still hard. I can’t imagine how hard it is if you don’t have that support. I’m just heartbroken for them,” she wrote.

And porn actress Odette Delacroix told fans that August and Yuri’s deaths won’t be in vain.

“The passing of AugustAmesxxx and YuriLuv have inspired me to open up more about my own fifteen year battle with depression instead of exhausting myself further by hiding it,” she tweeted.

Now fans are demanding action be taken to prevent any more stars from committing suicide.

“So sad what’s happening right now losing @YuriLuv @AugustAmesxxx @MsShylaStylez all great nice people just going through life,” tweeted Rusty Shackleford.

“If u need somebody to talk to call your friend even it’s is just hello check on them we all have problems addiction, depression or etc.”

And another fan said: “One can only hope that this isn’t the beginning of a trend. The industry has seen it before, but the hope was that better support mechanisms were in place for anyone needing them.”

Salma Hayek and Harvey Weinstein 1 Salma Hayek reveals Harvey Weinstein endlessly stalked and propositioned her before forcing her to do a nude lesbian sex scene after she refused his advances   and once threatened to have her KILLEDTrapped: Salma Hayek is revealing that she was sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein for years, claiming she repeatedly turned down his advances (Hayek above with Weinstein in 2010)

Salma Hayek has claimed she was harassed and propositioned by Harvey Weinstein for close to a decade.

In a powerful op-ed published on Wednesday in The New York Times, Hayek reveals that after years of saying no to ‘taking a shower with him,’ ‘letting him watch [her] take a shower,’ ‘letting him give [her] a massage,’ ‘letting a naked friend of his give her a massage,’ ‘letting him give [her] oral sex,’ and ‘getting naked with another woman,’ Weinstein finally found a way to corner the actress.

Weinstein even once appeared at the door of Hayek’s hotel while she was working on a film for a rival studio claims the actress.

After jumping through countless hoops to complete work on her dream project, the Frida Kahlo biopic Frida, Weinstein told her he would not release the picture unless there was a naked lesbian sex scene.

Hayek also details her experiences with Weinstein’s notorious temper, claiming he once told her: ‘I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.’

‘The absurdity of his demands went from getting a furious call in the middle of the night asking me to fire my agent for a fight he was having with him about a different movie with a different client to physically dragging me out of the opening gala of the Venice Film Festival, which was in honor of Frida, so I could hang out at his private party with him and some women I thought were models but I was told later were high-priced prostitutes,’ says Hayek.

That premiere was a major moment for Hayek, one that Weinstein made near-impossible.

Hayek had long spoken about her Frida film being the dream project she yearned to one day make in Hollywood, and did everything in her power to make that become a reality.

She stopped short however of giving into Weinstein’s demands for sex, and for that he retaliated in the harshest way possible, according to Hayek.

‘When he was finally convinced that I was not going to earn the movie the way he had expected, he told me he had offered my role and my script with my years of research to another actress,’ writes Hayek.

‘In his eyes, I was not an artist. I wasn’t even a person. I was a thing: not a nobody, but a body.’

Hayek refused to back down however, and filed a ‘bad faith’ lawsuit against Weinstein, which opened the door for her to get the project back off the ground again.

Weinstein demanded she then raise $10 million, get an A-list director, rewrite the script and find four bankable stars to appear alongside her in supporting roles if she wanted to gain control of the film she had personally ushered through pre-production.

Once filming commenced, he got worse claims Hayek, who said: ‘He told me that the only thing I had going for me was my sex appeal and that there was none of that in this movie. So he told me he was going to shut down the film because no one would want to see me in that role.’

That is when he told her she needed to add the sex scene and she agreed as a way to see her film finally get into theaters.

‘I arrived on the set the day we were to shoot the scene that I believed would save the movie,’ reveals Hayek.

‘And for the first and last time in my career, I had a nervous breakdown: My body began to shake uncontrollably, my breath was short and I began to cry and cry, unable to stop, as if I were throwing up tears.’

Hayek later notes: ‘It was not because I would be naked with another woman. It was because I would be naked with her for Harvey Weinstein. But I could not tell them then.’

She says that she eventually took a tranquilizer and made it through the scene, with filming on the project wrapping up soon after that difficult day.

That is when Weinstein suddenly declared he did not want to release the picture in theaters, according to Hayek.

He agreed if the screening managed to score over an 80 with a test audience.

In the end, Hayek’s hard work paid off for Weinstein despite his best efforts to ruin all she had managed to achieve on the project.

‘Months later, in October 2002, this film, about my hero and inspiration — this Mexican artist who never truly got acknowledged in her time with her limp and her unibrow, this film that Harvey never wanted to do, gave him a box office success that no one could have predicted, and despite his lack of support, added six Academy Award nominations to his collection, including best actress,’ writes Hayek.

It went on to win two Oscars.

Hayek closed her piece by expressing how grateful she is to be able to share her story.

‘I am grateful for everyone who is listening to our experiences. I hope that adding my voice to the chorus of those who are finally speaking out will shed light on why it is so difficult, and why so many of us have waited so long,’ writes the actress.

‘Men sexually harassed because they could. Women are talking today because, in this new era, we finally can.’

‘I feel unsafe walking down dark, badly lit streets,’ she confessed. ‘Sometimes I feel people are watching me.

‘I try to keep myself safe by not being alone, telling people where I am going, and using safe means of transport.’

The body-positive activist shared the photo and message as part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts’ social media campaign to end gender-based violence.

She explained that Girl Guides and Scouts around the world are drawing images of a ‘space or place’ where they feel unsafe and the pictures will be exhibited at the United Nations in New York.

August Ames 1 Porn star August Ames hanged herself in park 20 minutes drive from her home and left suicide note in car saying sorry to parentsAugust took her life earlier this week (Image: Twitter)

Porn star August Ames made no mention of the brutal online comments she’d received hours before her death in her suicide note, an official report has confirmed.

The porn star, 23, who was found lifeless in a public park in the early hours of Tuesday morning, had left her family a note that was later discovered in her car.

According to The Blast, the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s report found that August apologised to her family for taking her own life in the note, but didn’t discuss the cyber bullying she’d been subjected to for refusing to have filmed sex with a male performer who had previously slept with other men.

The medical examiner’s report found there was no evidence of drugs or alcohol in August’s car or at the scene, although toxicology tests are still ongoing.

Her cause of death has been confirmed as asphyxiation due to hanging.

August – real name Mercedes Grabowski – had been branded ‘homophobic’ by Twitter users for her refusal and was forced to defend herself in the face of cruel comments.

One user even told her to “take a cyanide pill” if she wasn’t prepared to apologise for her decision.

On Sunday 3 December, August had tweeted: “Whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know.

“BS is all I can say Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? ladirect I do my homework for my body.”

August Ames, a performer in sex movies, was found dead Tuesday in her California home, two days after she became embroiled in a Twitter controversy.

The Ventura County medical examiner declared the death a suicide by hanging.

Ames, 23, had been the recipient of a barrage of critical tweets after she announced Sunday that she had turned down a job because it would have required sex with a man who had performed in gay porn movies.

She said her decision arose from concern about sexually transmitted diseases, but it struck some people as homophobic. Her initial tweet drew hundreds of responses, many of them criticizing her.

“NOT homophobic,” she responded. “Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. That’s just how it is with me. I’m not putting my body at risk.”

The following day a final message was posted on her Twitter account, a short and foul-mouthed farewell.

Her body was found early Tuesday in her home in Camarillo, between Thousand Oaks and Ventura. The county medical examiner ruled it asphyxiation by hanging, according to the celebrity news website The Blast.

Friends reportedly said Ames had suffered from depression, and some of them characterized the response to her tweet as bullying, the Blast reported.

Ames was born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia, Canada. She appeared in almost 300 sexually explicit movies since she entered the trade four years ago.

She is survived by her husband, Kevin Moore, a producer and director.

In subsequent tweets, August – who had starred in more than 280 porn films during her years in the industry – pointed out that she had the right to decide who she had sex with, especially when it came to working with ‘crossover’ stars (performers who have sex with men and women).

“NOT homophobic,” she tweeted in response to one follower.

“Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. That’s just how it is with me. I’m not putting my body at risk, i don’t know what they do in their private lives.”

August went on: “Sorry, it was just my opinion. My body, my rules. Honestly I’m sorry if I offended anyone.”

Hours later, at around 3.45am on Tuesday 5 December, she was found dead in a park just 20 minutes from the home she shared with husband Kevin Moore in Camarillo, California.

Her porn film director husband Kevin praised August as “the kindest person I ever knew”, adding that “she meant the world to me”.

Ashley Graham 1 Shes showing them! Ashley Graham flaunts her enviable figure in a tiny bikini in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit snap, after revealing cruel bullies used to call her cottage cheese thighs

Reminiscing: Today Ashley Graham shared this image from her Fiji shoot for the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (by Yu Tsai)

  • The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2016 cover star Ashley posted an outtake from her 2017 shoot today
  • The magazine has not yet confirmed if she is returning for 2018, but the 30-year-old seemed to hint that she will with the Instagram shot
  • In a recent interview, she reflected on her cover and the bullies at school who taunted her for her weight 
  • Hannah Ferguson, Barbara Palvin, Samantha Hoopes, Hannah Jeter, and Kate Upton have all shot images for the upcoming issue 
  • The magazine also named Sailor Brinkley Cook, Raven Lyn, Alexis Ren, Chase Carter, Anne de Paula, Georgia Gibbs, and Kate Wasley as rookies

Sports Illustrated hasn’t confirmed any of the major models returning for the 2018 Swimsuit Issue just yet, but Ashley Graham seems to be hinting that she’ll be back with her latest Instagram shot.

Earlier today, the 30-year-old — who covered the magazine in 2016 — shared a throwback snap from her 2017 shoot. She captioned the sizzling bikini shot simply with: ‘SI VIBES.’

Ashley looks stunning in the shot, in which she stands with her feet in the water and gazes off to the side while tugging on her bikini bottoms.

Ashley’s too-small two-piece, covered in iridescent sequins, clearly did the trick: It’s racked up nearly 200,000 likes in just four hours.

The supermodel looks tan in the shot, an outtake from the last issue from a beach in Fiji, and her brown hair is natural around her shoulders.

In an interview on CBS This Morning that ran last weekend, Ashley recalled the wonderful feeling of finding herself on the cover in 2016.

‘[It proved that] anything you want can happen, and I thought, “Yes! Sports Illustrated decided to have curvy women not only in their magazine but on the cover of their magazine! Now that means that size diversity is here, and it’s real, and it’s not a “trend.”‘

Though she sees more body types being more widely accepted, she still takes issue with the term ‘plus-size’

‘I think that when you use the word “plus-size,” you’re putting all these women in a category: “You don’t eat well.” “You don’t work out.” “You could care less about your body.” “You’re insecure.” “You have no confidence.”‘

Dustin Hoffman 1 He humiliated and demeaned me: New Dustin Hoffman accuser comes forward to claim he harassed and physically violated her FOR MONTHS during 1984 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman

Kathryn Rossetter (left) says Dustin Hoffman (right) groped her almost nightly during the 1984 run of Death of a Salesman. She also says she has proof – this photo of her squeezing her breast during a picture while they were acting together 

  • Katheryn Rossetter, 66, played Dustin Hoffman’s mistress in the 1984 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman 
  • She says Hoffman groped her nightly between scenes, and squeezed her breast anytime they took pictures together
  • The actress says she ‘tried everything to get him to stop’ but Hoffman never relented
  • She is the third woman to come forward in recent days with sexual harassment claims against the film legend
  • Actresses Meryl Streep and Katherine Ross have told similar stories about Hoffman in the past 
  • On Monday, comedian John Oliver confronted Hoffman about the allegations at a film screening
  • Hoffman denied the claims in a heated exchange with Oliver  

A woman who acted in a Broadway play opposite Dustin Hoffman spoke out on Friday to say he groped her on stage nightly and refused to stop even when she tearfully pleaded with him to leave her alone.

Kathryn Rossetter played Hoffman’s mistress in the 1984 Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, and subsequent TV movie.

In addition to violating her on a daily basis, she says Hoffman also squeezed her breasts anytime they took pictures together.

The 66-year-old actress says being serially assaulted by her ‘hero’ was ‘horrific’ and ‘demoralizing’ -and something she still deals with today.

She is the third woman in the past month to come forward and accuse Hoffman, 80, of sexual harassment.

Rossetter (right, in a recent picture) is the third woman to come forward in the past month with such accusations against Hoffman (left) 

Rossetter told her story in her own words in an essay for the Hollywood Reporter, published on Friday.

She says she first met Hoffman in 1983, during an audition to play his mistress in Death of a Salesman.

She recalls her audition for the role fondly, saying Hoffman immediately fell in love with her laugh and became her champion – even when the director thought she was too young and thin to play the role.

The day before her callbacks, she says he got his make-up artist to make her look older for the role. When they did another read-through the next day, she says he even got into an argument with the director in front of her, saying the role had to go to her. Hoffman won the argument.

But her happy memories of Hoffman ended soon after that.

As soon as they started rehearsals, Rossetter says Hoffman crossed a line and started sexually harassing her relentlessly.

She says the first time he got inappropriate was three days into rehearsals, when he asked her to stop by his hotel room after the two had lunch together.

‘When we stepped into the room, he jumped on the bed and said, “Give me a back rub.” He pulled off his shirt. I didn’t know what to do. I said we had to be back at rehearsal in 15 minutes. He said, “Just a quickie.”

One night, Rossetter says between scenes Hoffman lifted her slip over her head in front of a group of male crew. She says the shock of what he had done caused her to miss her cue. Hoffman pictured as Willy Loman in 1985

‘I was a nervous wreck, but sat on the bed and gave a very lame rub. The maid walked in and I almost fainted. He laughed. As we prepared to leave, he looked at me and said, “Now we have our ‘hotel room.’”

‘Ah, I thought — Method Acting! I was his mistress and our scenes were set in a hotel room and Biff walks in. He told me to return to rehearsal a few minutes after he did and left me there,’ she recalled.

But the awkward exchange turned out to be the first of many more disturbing incidents.

‘That was the beginning of what was to become a horrific, demoralizing and abusive experience at the hands (literally) of one of my acting idols,’ she said.

Rossetter says Hoffman went so far as to start groping her off stage, between their scenes.

She says Hoffman and the director loved her laugh so much that they made her do it live on stage every night, from the wings, during a memory scene.

Hoffman was backstage with Rossetter during these scenes, and she says one night he started groping her.

‘One night in Chicago, I felt his hand up under my slip on the inside of my thighs. I was completely surprised and tried to bat him away while watching the stage for my cues. After the show he was busy with the producer and director so I had no access to him to address it. It then happened almost every show. Six to eight shows a week.

‘I couldn’t speak to him in the moment because I was on a live mic. He kept it up and got more and more aggressive. One night he actually started to stick his fingers inside me. Night after night I went home and cried,’ she said.

Rossetter recalls a particularly rough night, when Hoffman went so far as to pull her costume – a slip – over her head to expose her breasts.

She says this happened in front of a group of male crew members and she later learned Hoffman had promised them a ‘surprise’ if they gathered hear her backstage.

The shock of the violation had caused her to miss her cue to laugh and she was chewed out by her fellow actors afterward.

She says she tried to tell one of the actors what happened, but he said it was her ‘fault and walked away’.

After this incident, Rossetter says she confronted Hoffman – pushing him up against a wall and screaming ‘F*** you! How would you like it if someone did that to you before you walked out on stage every night, Mr. Method Actor? Leave me alone!’

She says that worked, but only for three days. ‘And then it was back to groping as usual,’ she said.

On another occasion, Rossetter says she was summoned to Hoffman’s room in the middle of the play by his dresser. She thought he wanted to give her notes on a scene, but instead he asked her to give him a massage.

‘He wanted me to rub his feet. Get on my knees and rub his feet. I froze. I gave a little foot rub and ran out,’ she said.

She says this happened on multiple occasions, and each time Hoffman’s dresser would wait outside the room standing guard.

‘Whenever possible, I hid and tried not to be found. But the boss was relentless. Dustin would whisper, “higher, higher,” trying to get me to move up his pants legs toward his genitals. I didn’t do it. I would stop at his calves,’ Rossetter said.

Rossetter said she felt ‘trapped’ in these situations since they were just feet from the stage. If she yelled out, the audience would hear.

And it wasn’t just on the job that Hoffman harassed Rossetter. She says he regularly groped her breasts whenever they took pictures together.

‘After the shows at parties, whenever he had a picture taken with me, he would put his arm around my rib cage and then grab my breast just before they snapped the picture and then remove it. He was very skilled at dropping his hand just as the picture snapped to avoid it being recorded,’ she said.

While Hoffman was skilled at moving his hand away before the picture was taken, she says she once caught him in the act. She shared the image with the Hollywood Reporter.

‘Only by luck do I have one such picture — where the camera caught him in the act. A picture I had taken with hopes of sending it to my family. A millisecond in time. There I am — big smile and my arm moving toward his with the intention to push it away. But caught as it is, it seems I’m complicit with the gesture. I was not. Not ever,’ she said.

Rossetter says she ‘tried everything to get him to stop’ but Hoffman was relentless.

‘I tried to laugh it off, smack him and say witty, pointed things. I begged him nicely with tears in my eyes to please stop it. To no avail,’ she said.

She even considered reporting Hoffman to Actors Equity, but was convinced not to by colleagues who said it could ruin her career.

‘I was cautioned by some respected theatre professionals that if I did, I would probably lose my job and, because he was such a powerful star, any hope of a career. It was Dustin’s playpen. He controlled the purse strings,’ she said.

The nightly attacks sent Rossetter into a depression. She withdrew from her work and says she felt isolated, unable to make friends in the cast.

Like many victims, she started to blame herself.

‘How could the same man who fought to get me the job, who complimented my work, who essentially launched my career, who gave me the benefit of his wisdom as an actor, how could he also be this sexual power abuser? Was I doing something? Was it my fault?’ she said.

Faced with little recourse, Rossetter continued to work – though it led to many a night crying at home.

When the play closed, they reunited a month later to film the television movie. She was only onset for three days so she says she doesn’t know about Hoffman’s treatment of any of the other women working on the film, including Anna Graham Hunter, who told her story to the Hollywood reporter last month. But she says ‘nothing I hear surprises me’.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the end of filming did not end the groping from Hoffman.

In the fall of 1985, they were promoting the film when  Rossetter says Hoffman groped her while they were posing for a picture at a screening.

This time, she had had enough. Rossetter snapped and decided to give Hoffman a taste of his own medicine.

‘Without thinking, a knee-jerk response built up over two years, I grabbed his crotch,’ she said.

But she immediately felt bad for what she had done.

‘In that moment I understood how women abused for many years by husbands or boyfriends will pick up a gun or a knife and suddenly attack back. I also knew I had snapped and what I had done was awful. I was terrified and humiliated,’ she recalled.

Rossetter says she continues to struggle with the groping she suffered at the hands of Hoffman.

‘There is no denying I learned an enormous amount from him about acting. He was generous in the many presents he gave us and the many parties he threw. He can do all that and still be a man who manipulates, abuses his power and is a pig to women. They are not mutually exclusive.

‘My issue isn’t what he said, it’s what he did. Along with the nightly sexual harassment, he eroded my confidence, my dignity. He humiliated and demeaned me. He robbed me of my joy in the experience and he left dirty fingerprints on my soul,’ she added.

John Oliver He humiliated and demeaned me: New Dustin Hoffman accuser comes forward to claim he harassed and physically violated her FOR MONTHS during 1984 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman

Comedian John Oliver confronted Hoffman about the wave of allegations at a film screening on Monday, and Hoffman denied the accusations in a heated exchange with the pundit

Hoffman declined to comment on Rossetter’s essay to the Hollywood Reporter.

Hoffman’s essay was published a little over a month after Anna Graham Hunter wrote a similar account of Hoffman’s harassment.

In an essay also published in the Hollywood Reporter, Hunter said Hoffman repeatedly groped and harassed her when she was a 17-year-old production assistant on the Death of a Salesman movie.  Since then, the Hollywood Reporter says they’ve heard from several more women who claim they were harassed by Hoffman as well, in incidents dating back to the 1970s

Shortly after Hunter’s story was published, Wendy Riss Gatsiounis told Variety about how Hoffman asked her several sex-fueled questions during a business meeting in 1991.

Hoffman’s handsy-behavior has been somewhat well known for years. Both Meryl Streep and Katherine Ross have recalled in past interviews how the actor groped them during auditions.

But it wasn’t until the stories resurfaced during the ongoing “Me Too” movement that Hoffman has faced significant public scrutiny over his actions.

On Monday, John Oliver confronted the movie legend about the allegations at a film screening, but Hoffman denied the claims in a heated exchange with the pundit.
