Posted in Entertainment on Jan 16th, 2019
Remember that gruesome torture scene from Marathon Man, when Dustin Hoffman’s character, dripping with sweat, got tortured by a Nazi? Rumour has it, those sweat beads were entirely real. Hoffman had stayed up the entire night before and had spent the previous few hours running around New York as fast as he could. When he got to set, he was exhausted and drenched in sweat. Laurence Olivier, playing opposite Hoffman as the sadistic Nazi, asked him why he was so sweaty. Hoffman replied that he was a method actor, to which good old Laurence said, “For God’s sake, dear boy. Why don’t you just act?” Well, Dustin, we wouldn’t have you any other way. Here’s our list of your most memorable movies.

Hoffman has certainly calmed down from his earlier method acting days. However, he still manages to pull off one of the funniest examples of New Age spiritualist hippies ever. The chemistry between Hoffman and Streisand just goes to show why these two giants still rule the roost.
