The Talks interview

Interview

Dustin Hoffman Sighted at Chasen's RestaurantHoffman gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses going to therapy, what he learned, and what makes a good therapist.

Knowing when to say a certain thing, and not wasting it. I have found that it is helpful in life, you don’t have to always say what you think to someone because if it doesn’t land then you have wasted it. When I say landing I mean is someone going to take it in, or is there a defense, I mean we all have defenses, and that can be an art form I think.

I agreed. It shows the reality of horse racing, and it is far removed from the Kentucky Derby with everybody wearing those fancy hats. There’s a sordid underside and a brutal­ity in terms of the animals.
