Dustin Hoffman on his strong marriage
Dustin Hoffman has been married to his wife, Lisa Hoffman for 37 years. On being asked the secret to their strong bond, the couple insisted that it is quite easier than what people think. “We work hard at it,” Lisa said in an interview, “I knew I was going to end up with Dusty, and that my life would be traveling around with him.” “I say in Hollywood it is like dog years, so you have to multiply that by seven,” the 62-year-old also joked, then added that they are more in love than ever before and that their bond continues to grow stronger. The couple knew each other because Dustin’s mother was friends with Lisa’s grandmother. They met for a family barbecue when Dustin was just 27 and Lisa was only 10-years old. “Dustin was telling us jokes, playing the piano and encouraging me to dance around the living room,” Lisa said in an interview in 2007, “After we got together, my grandmother reminded me that later that day I had said, ‘I hope he waits for me because I want to marry him.’” They later reconnected at Lisa’s grandfather’s funeral when she was only 22 and Dustin was already 38 by that time. They eventually got married in 1980 and have been married to each other ever since. Lisa said in an interview that one should work towards developing a personal identity outside of Hollywood. “That was an obstacle to overcome, that this is not a celebrity brand,” she said. “I am so far from a celebrity, I just happen to be married to an actor.” Lisa Hoffman has a law degree. She gave her exams a year after marriage and passed. She felt that she had to do it for herself. She said in an interview, “I knew that having a law career wouldn’t be possible once I started travelling around with Dustin, but I also knew that I needed to complete this one thing for myself.”
