His wife looked proud as she posed alongside her husband of nearly four decades.

Hoffman was set to receive a tribute award in honor of his prolific work in acting, according to?Deadline.??

The actor seems to have escaped major career damage - unlike producers Harvey Weinstein and Brett Ratner, and actor Kevin Spacey - less than a month after a woman named Anna Graham Hunter claimed he made a series of sexually inappropriate remarks to her when she was a 17-year-old intern working on his 1985 TV film Death of a Salesman.

The Tootsie star 'was openly flirtatious' as he 'grabbed my a**,' 'talked about sex to me and in front of me,' and asked for foot massages, Hunter wrote in a piece for The Hollywood Reporter November 1.

Hunter said in one instance, Hoffman humiliated her in a front of a room full of people.

'One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time,' she said. 'Then he said, "I'll have a hard-boiled egg … and a soft-boiled clitoris." His entourage burst out laughing. I left, speechless. Then I went to the bathroom and cried.'

Another woman named Wendy Riss Gatsiounis said that the veteran actor peppered her with sexually-fueled questions when she met with him over a show business project in 1991.

He said: 'I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.'
