Hollywood veteran Dustin Hoffman says being at the Oscar ceremony isn't as glamorous as it looks.

"Oscar is boring. It lasts forever. And don't think you're seeing spontaneous behavior. You see couples who are suddenly smooching, and, well, there's a guy sitting on the ground with the camera at their knees," quoted the 74-year-old as saying.

"There was one particular time I knew I wasn't going to win, and when they'd train the camera on me as one of the losers, I wanted to be able to rip open my tuxedo shirt and just have stenciled on my chest, 'Oh, (bleep)!' But my wife wouldn't let me do it," he added.
