Considered one of the most signficant ever to grace the silver screen, actor Dustin Hoffman boasts an illustrative career. With regards to accolades, he owns it all.

The Rain Man actor is the recipient of two Academy Awards, four BAFTAs, two Emmy Awards and a whopping six Golden Globe Awards. In 1999 and 2012, he received the prestigious AFI Life Achievement Award and Kennedy Center Honors Award, respectively.

Dustin's success story permeates beyond the professional realm. The legendary actor's personal life as a father and a husband can be a blueprint for many to follow.

Wife & Children Details

In Hollywood where marriages barely last a year, Dustin and his wife Lisa Hoffman (Gottsegen) are rarities. The duo went into a civil union in October 1980 and have been together ever since. Admittedly, they have worked hard to keep their marriage afloat.

Long before the Midnight Cowboy actor and his perfumer wife saw each other in a romantic light, they were family friends.

Dustin met Lisa when he was 27 while she was 10. 12 years later, they reunited at the latter's grandfather's funeral. Surprisingly though, the 17 years age difference didn't matter anymore.

Is Dustin Hoffman Gay?

While there have been rumors about Dustin's alleged gay sexuality, his two marriages with females are enough to shut down the gossips.

That said, back in 2010, Dustin locked lips with actor Jason Bateman on a Lakers’ game-kiss cam. It was a joyous moment for gay people worldwide, no doubt!
