Hoffman reveals his doggy plan for world peace

Dustin Hoffman says man could learn how to preserve world peace by the following the example of dogs.

Hoffman says there would be less conflict if, like dogs, humans first sniffed each other out before deciding whether or not to fight.

Writing in the December issue of Playboy, The Graduate star says, "If a lot of dogs are on the beach, the first thing they do is smell each other's a***.

"The information that's gotten somehow makes pacifists out of all of them. I've thought, 'If only we smelled each other's a**, there wouldn't be any war.'"

Hoffman's latest movie, Meet The Fockers co-starring Robert DeNiro, Barbra Streisand and Ben Stiller, is due for release on January 28 in the UK.
