Speaking to 'Total Film' magazine, Dustin Hoffman revealed that despite already owning two Oscars, the thrill of winning hasn't diminished.

"[Would I be happy if I won'] Oh yes! It's like sex," he said.

The 75-year-old, who has been in the film buisiness since 1967, turned his hand to directing last year with comedy drama, 'Quartet' set in a home for retired opera singers, starring Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly and Tom Courtenay.

Hoffman, who picked up Oscars for his roles in 'Kramer vs. Kramer' and 'Rain Man', says he has a new respect for directors who manage to hide on-set difficulties from their actors.
