Private & early life

Marriage and relationships

Hoffman admitted that he and fellow actor and close friend Robert Duvall were “obsessed with sex” when they were young and unmarried.

Hoffman married Anne Byrne in May 1969 after meeting her in 1963. He adopted Karina, Byrne’s daughter from a previous marriage, and had Jenna with her.

In 1970, Hoffman and Byrne were living in Greenwich Village in a building next door to a townhouse occupied at the time by Weathermen members when a bomb was inadvertently detonated in the basement of the townhouse, killing three people.

Hoffman may be seen standing on the street after the explosion in the 2002 documentary The Weather Underground. In 1980, the couple divorced.

In October 1980, he married Lisa Gottsegen, a businesswoman, and the couple had four children: Jacob Edward, Rebecca Lillian, Maxwell Geoffrey, and Alexandra Lydia “Ali.”

Hoffman is the grandfather of two grandkids.

He revealed in an interview that all of his children from his second marriage had bar or bat mitzvahs and that he is now a more devout Jew than he was when he was younger.

He has also expressed his dissatisfaction with his lack of Hebrew proficiency.

Activism in politics

Hoffman, a lefty, has long backed the Democratic Party and Ralph Nader.

In 1997, he was one of a number of Hollywood actors and executives who signed an open letter to then-German chancellor Helmut Kohl criticizing the persecution of Scientologists in Germany, which was published in the International Herald Tribune as a newspaper advertising.

Treatment for cancer

In 2013, Hoffman underwent cancer treatment and was given the all-clear.

Allegations of sexual misbehavior

Hoffman was accused of sexual misconduct by seven women in 2017. Hoffman made improper remarks and statements around her while working as an intern on a TV production of Death of a Salesman, according to a woman who was 17 at the time.

Hoffman also requested her to give him foot massages. Hoffman apologized to the 17-year-old intern who accused him of harassment but denied culpability.

Meryl Streep said to the online magazine Slate in 2017 that Hoffman touched her breast on their first encounter. However, a spokesperson for Meryl Streep told Slate that the portrayal of their 1979 meeting was inaccurate.

According to a spokesperson for Meryl Streep, “There was a transgression, for which Dustin expressed regret. And Meryl was fine with it.” Hoffman hit Streep, rather than pantomiming a slap, while filming a scene in Kramer vs. Kramer, according to Streep.

The other six charges have elicited no public response from Hoffman.

Hoffman’s co-star in Tootsie (1982) and The Lost City (2005), Bill Murray, supported him, stating, “I heard about what happened to him, and Dustin Hoffman is a wonderful guy. He’s a Borscht Belt flirt who’s been that way his whole life. He is, nonetheless, a very kind dude.” Chevy Chase and Liam Neeson, both actors, defended him.
