London, December 10 (ANI): Dustin Hoffman has revealed that he owes his youthful looks to his strict daily routine that included waking up at 4 am to hit the sauna room later.

The 71-year-old Oscar-winner said that he loved to loosen up his bones with frequent sauna sessions - even on every film set.

I live the same life every day. All the time. I go to bed nine oclock. Always wake up four in the morning, so I dont need an alarm clock. Make my own coffee, hang with the dogs, then I work out for an hour, the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

I know if I dont work out while Im still on the coffee high, I wont. Then I brush my teeth, shower, go into my sauna.

Wherever I am, if Im away, I rent a prefab sauna to sweat and loosen up the bones. The older you get, the more those bones need loosening. Then a cold shower for as long as I can, he added.

The six-time Golden Globe Award-winner further insisted on the relevance of taking a short nap for relaxed muscles.

He said: And Im a proponent of the afternoon nap. Einstein always took a nap. Fifteen minutes. Thats all. Wake up naturally, dont go back to sleep. See, it never fails that 10 hours from when your day starts the director always calls for your close-up, and without that nap you look puffy. (ANI)
