Dustin Hoffman is grateful to his wife Lisa for helping to give his stalled acting career a jumpstart – because she was the first to notice he was beginning to behave like a retiree.
The 70-year-old had plans to ease into his golden years and enjoy being out of work – until his wife urged him to return to Hollywood, reports the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six.
He said: “One morning, my wife noticed I was wearing a cardigan, and the next day, too, followed by slippers. So one day she just told me that, instead of dressing like a retired actor, I should go back to work – so that’s what I did.”
But despite being a working actor, the Rain Man star insists he has always been a homebody: “I’m in bed before 10… I prepare breakfast and take it to my wife. I’ve been doing that for almost 30 years.”
Hoffman has been married to second wife Lisa Gottsegen for 27 years.
