Dustin Hoffman’s prescription for stress: Tequila

New York, Feb uary 11: Dustin Hoffman says that the key to go through the upcoming Academy Awards gala is … tequila.

“It’s not me, it’s the Patron,” he told Bon Appetit of his ability to work red carpets.

The 75-year-old admitted that since he can’t eat before the ceremony, he relies on drinks to steady his nerves, the New York Post reported.

He admitted that after downing a few shots, he becomes very friendly, particularly with reporters.

He said that his beverage of choice “used to be a Greyhound” then “gin and tonic . . . Now it’s tequila.”

Hoffman added that he never goes to parties after awards ceremonies. Instead, he says, he goes to popular burger joint – In-N-Out -, all dressed up – and eats hamburgers all the way home in the limo. (ANI)
