Meryl Streep has made a new claim against her former co-star Dustin Hoffman.
She says that in 1979, when they were filming their first scene in ‘Kramer Vs Kramer’ … Hoffman slapped her without her approval!
She says that actors often inadvertently hurt each other in physical scenes and there’s a certain level of forgiveness that comes with that, but, according to her, Hoffman overstepped.
She said: “ ... this was my first movie. And it was my first take in my first movie, and he just slapped me. And you see it in the movie.”
Streep also previously said that Hoffman grabbed her breasts in their first meeting! According to her rep, he apologized for that.
