John Oliver Presses Dustin Hoffman On Allegations

John Oliver grills Dustin Hoffman about sexual harassment allegations

Quote:
“I can’t leave certain things unaddressed,” the host said. “The easy way is not to bring anything up. Unfortunately that leaves me at home later at night hating myself. ‘Why the … didn’t I say something? No one stands up to powerful men.’”

I love John Oliver so much. And good on him for not letting it just be ignored, especially considering the theme of the movie involved.

“Well, there’s a point in her not bringing it up for 40 years,” Hoffman said.
Girl, please. Just please.

He (Oliver) is to be commended. He felt the need to bring it up, but he did it in a nonadversarial manner that kept the discussion going. Hoffman even brought the subject back up after the topic had changed and Oliver did not really go back after him, but simply nodded ...and let him hang himself.

If PBS had the guts and the foresight, either Oliver or John Stewart would be brilliant replacements for Charlie Rose.

So, for the “who is the biggest dirt bag in Hollywood today” award, I submit the following:

Twitter

With a footnote:
Michael Rapaport Sentenced for Harassment | E! News

And a heartbreaking “look who isn’t really an ally after all” chaser.

I've never understood people who act like Michael Rapaport is some kind of ally to the downtrodden just because he tweets.

That was a very uncomfortable conversation but one I hope we have more of. I think Oliver was totally in bounds approaching the issue in the style he did, and I think Hoffman made some very valid points.

And Deniro looked like he just really wanted a nap.
