Dustin Hoffman's Youthful Secret At 71!

By Staff

Rarely would you find a celebrity who would reveal the secret of youth in public, but the 71-year old Dustin Hoffman has done just that. The oscar winner said that he loved to "loosen up" his bones with frequent sauna sessions even on every film set.


"I live the same life every day. All the time. I go to bed nine o'clock. Always wake up four in the morning, so I don't need an alarm clock. Make my own coffee, hang with the dogs, then I work out for an hour," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

"I know if I don't work out while I'm still on the coffee high, I won't. Then I brush my teeth, shower, go into my sauna. "Wherever I am, if I'm away, I rent a prefab sauna to sweat and loosen up the bones. The older you get, the more those bones need loosening. Then a cold shower for as long as I can," he added.

According to the six-times Golden Globe winner taking a short nap relaxes the muscles. He said: "And I'm a proponent of the afternoon nap. Einstein always took a nap. Fifteen minutes. That's all. Wake up naturally, don't go back to sleep. See, it never fails that 10 hours from when your day starts the director always calls for your close-up, and without that nap you look puffy."


This should be some food for thought for the younger Hollywood generation, that runs under the knife for that perfect face or just jabs in Botox to stay young.
