Three additional victims have come forward, including the teen.

Three more women have come forward and accused actor Dustin Hoffman of sexual misconduct.

Hoffman allegedly exposed himself to a minor and sexually assaulted two other women during the filming of the movie Ishtar, according to Variety.

The actor was not available for comment and Variety stated that his attorney, Mark A. Neubauer, called the accusations against Hoffman “defamatory falsehoods.”

In 1980, Cori Thomas said was hanging out with Hoffman and his daughter, Karina, shopping and grabbing a bite to eat. After taking the teenagers around the city, Hoffman sent his daughter home and took Thomas to his hotel room to wait for her parents to pick her up. He then went to the bathroom to take a shower.

When he came out of the bathroom, he was wearing only a towel and Thomas claims exposed his genitals.

“He came out of the bathroom with a towel at first wrapped around him, which he dropped,” Thomas said. “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.”

She claims he then asked her to massage his feet.

“I didn't know that I could say no, so I did it,” the then-16-year-old said.  “And he kept telling me, ‘I’m naked. Do you want to see?’”

Her parents eventually arrived and she left. Thomas said she didn't say anything to her parents about the incident. The Associated Press confirmed her story.

Two other women claim the now-80-year-old actor vaginally groped them while he was working on the set of Ishtar in 1987.

Melissa Kester was introduced to Hoffman by her boyfriend at the time, who invited her to check out the studio Hoffman was recording the vocals for the film.

They began talking and Kester mentioned she wanted to write. Hoffman asked for her phone number and said he might want to collaborate.

“I told him about some projects I was interested in, and he seemed really interested,” Kester told Variety. “I’m embarrassed, thinking back, because why would he be interested? It’s stupid.”

They met up another time to record some vocals. Kester was with her boyfriend and a male engineer in the control room and Hoffman was in the recording booth. Kester claims Hoffman was bored and called her into the booth.

“He may have been being flirtatious, but it wasn't to the point of being obscene because my boyfriend’s there,” Kester said. “Then they get ready to do another take. I’m standing there, and it’s kind of a small room, and he grabs me, so we’re both facing out so we’re both facing the people in the studio. I’m thinking that it’s kind of flirtatious and funny, like he’s holding onto me, because I’m going to help him sing better. I felt awkward. It’s a little weird. He’s hugging me while he’s singing. But ha ha ha, it’s all a joke. My boyfriend is right there.”

Kester went on, accusing Hoffman of sexually assaulting her right in front of her boyfriend.

“And as he’s doing that, 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.”

Kester said that he kept his fingers inside her for the rest of the take, about 15-20 seconds. Then, she ran out of the room, not wanting her boyfriend to know about the incident.

“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 allegedly called Kester so many times that she was worried he might be stalking her. She told him to stop calling and didn't hear from him after that.

The third woman who accused Hoffman of sexually assaulting her requested to remain anonymous, according to Hollywood Life. She said that she had two sexual encounters with the actor.

She claims that Hoffman invited her to eat lunch with him in his dressing room the first time the two met when she was 22.

The next week Hoffman called and wanted her to come to the studio where he was filming Ishtar. It was the last day of filming and a party was being held after the shoot was finished. She said she was going to head out but Hoffman insisted she stay.

He was like ‘No, no, stay,’” she told Variety. “He gave me a drink. Everybody was dancing. And he just kept keeping an eye on me.”

Around 1 a.m. people began leaving in a station wagon. The woman claimed she was going to find her own way home but Hoffman wanted her to take the car that was pretty packed with other people.

“I said ‘Okay, I’ll just get home another way.’ He goes, ‘No, we’ll get in the way back,’” the woman said.

The two lay in the back of the station wagon when Hoffman allegedly put his fingers into the woman, who was wearing a skirt.

“There are people inches from us,” she said. “And he just took his hand and stuck his fingers right up inside of me. I didn't know what to do. He’s smiling at me. I was frozen. I was outside of my body.”

The woman said that she felt she was unable to stop the incident because of Hoffman’s celebrity.

“There were people there,” she said. “What are they going to think of me, that I’m a whore if a say something? What would I say? He’s Dustin Hoffman.”

As the car dropped her off, the woman said Hoffman slipped her $20 and told her to meet him in San Remo. According to Variety, she described feeling in “a kind of fugue state” and said she didn't know what to do so she called a cab and told the driver to drive around for a bit before instructing him to take her to San Remo.

When she arrived in San Remo, the woman said Hoffman performed oral sex on her and the two engaged in sexual intercourse.

The woman said that the first encounter was not consensual. When asked if the second was non-consensual she said, “I don’t know.”

Since October, three other women have accused Hoffman of sexual harassment making a total of six allegations against the actor.
