Dustin Hoffman Was The First Older Man and the First Movie Star His Wife Ever Loved

To promote Little Fockers, Dustin Hoffman is sharing his fairly progressive views on dating and marriage: "Yes we did [sleep together on the first date]," he said of his and his second wife's, attorney Lisa Gottsegen's, early courtship, at a press conference today. "This was going to be her first movie star, her first older man, her first ex - someone who had broken up with their wife - and the first date and she did all four. And then she said I ruined it by calling the next day. That probably went against every romantic advice because she told me later that her grandmother always said, 'If you give away the milk, you have to buy the cow,' or something. What is that?" Owen Wilson weighed in, too, speaking out against the old logic: "If you have a great glass of cold milk that's really refreshing, you'd be even more inclined not to let that cow go." This is all part of Hoffman's Little Fockers rescue mission, of course. Or maybe that mission failed, and now he's just having fun. [HuffPo via Movieline]
