It’s usually the home team that gets the most cheering – but at the Staples Center Thursday night, fans went wild for something that had nothing to do with basketball.
During the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics NBA finals matchup, Dustin Hoffman decided to join in on the Kiss Cam fun – a segment where couples are shown on the JumboTron and prompted to share a smooch – when the camera zoomed in on him.
Learning, at first, towards his wife, Hoffman, 72, turned to plant a smacker instead on an unsuspecting Jason Bateman, 41, to the delight of the crowd.
With their wives laughing and watching the action play out on the big screen, Hoffman and Bateman, costars in 2007’s Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, shared some very public PDA. Talk about being good sports!
