A friend of Dustin Hoffman's daughter claims the actor exposed himself to her while she was still in high school.

Cori Thomas was just 16 when she met the Oscar winner - who has recently been accused of sexual misconduct with multiple women. Hoffman's lawyer called the accusations 'defamatory falsehoods.'
Thomas, a high school classmate of Hoffman's daughter Karina at the United Nations International School in New York, said that in 1980 she'd joined the father and daughter for an afternoon in Manhattan, visiting bookshops and dining together at Jim McMullin's on the Upper East Side.
Her parents were supposed to be picking her up from the restaurant, but Thomas - then an aspiring actress - told Variety that Hoffman had suggested they leave a note for her parents at the restaurant, telling them to pick her up from his hotel.
The three went up to Hoffman's hotel room but soon after, she says that either Karina or Dustin suggested her classmate should go home 'because it was a school night and she had homework.'
She was left alone with the actor, then 43, who she says decided to take a shower as she waited for her parents to pick her up.
A few minutes later, she claims he walked out the bathroom with a towel wrapped around him.
Then the towel dropped.
'He was standing there naked. I think I almost collapsed, actually. It was the first time I had ever seen a naked man. I was mortified. I didn't know what to do.
'And he milked it. He milked the fact that he was naked. He stood there. He took his time.'
Thomas says that Hoffman eventually put on his robe but then asked her to massage his feet. As a flustered, naive teen, she did as she was asked.
'I didn't know what to do in the circumstance,' she said. 'I didn't know that I could say no, so I did it. And he kept telling me, 'I'm naked. Do you want to see?'
Melissa Kester claims she was assaulted by Hoffman when she was recording audio for film Ishtar in the mid 1980s.
Then a recent college graduate, Kester said she was working in the studio where Hoffman was laying down vocal tracks for the movie.
She's met the actor a couple of times previously, but on their third meeting, she said he digitally penetrated her while they were standing together in the recording booth - while her unknowing boyfriend and another sound engineer stood just feet away, on the other side of the soundproof glass, in the control room.
'He literally just stuck his fingers down my pants,' Kester said. 'He put his fingers inside me. And the thing I feel most bad about is I didn't know what to do. I just stood there. I just froze in the situation like 'Oh my god, what is happening?' It's shocking when that happens to you.'
She said Hoffman had his fingers inside her for 15-20 seconds until he finished the take.
'He kind of laughed,' she said. 'Then I just ran out of there, and I sat in the bathroom crying. I thought, 'Oh my God.' I felt like I'd been raped. There was no warning. I didn't know he would do that.'
Hoffman, she said, tried calling her after the incident until she told him never to speak to her again.
She later told a friend about the incident although didn't share all the details.
Another woman, who chose to remain anonymous, told Variety Hoffman assaulted her in the back of a car while she too was working on Ishtar, as an extra aged 22.
He'd offered her a ride home from the movie's wrap party in his driver's station wagon which quickly filled up with other people. She says they lay next to each other in the back, with other passengers just inches away, when she says he slid his hand other her skirt and 'stuck his fingers right up inside of me.'
