Has a reputation for being difficult to work with.


Was considered for the role of Michael Corlene in the Godfather.
While at the Pasadena Playhouse, Hoffman and a classmate were voted "Least likely to succeed". The classmate was Gene Hackman.
(January 1999) Awarded $3 Million in damages and compensation in a case against a Los Angeles magazine that printed a computer generated image of Hoffman in a dress. (cf. Tootsie (1982))
During the filming of Wag the Dog (1997) Hoffman, his co-star Robert De Niro and director Barry Levinson had an impromptu meeting with President Clinton at a Washington hotel. "So what's this movie about?" the president asked De Niro. De Niro looked over to Levinson hoping he would answer the question. Levinson, in turn, looked over to Hoffman. Hoffman, realizing there was no one else to pass the buck to, is quoted as saying "so I just started to tap dance. I can't even remember what I said."
