You never know who might come trick-or-treating at your door on Halloween, especially in Los Angeles! THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Don Diamont (Bill) was stunned to see Academy Award-winning actor Dustin Hoffman at his door this year!
“I was taking a picture of [my wife], Cindy Ambuehl, handing out candy when I see the one and only Dustin Hoffman in the crowd at our gate,” Diamont revealed. He was trick-or-treating with his grandchildren. Over 20 years ago, we used to frequent the same spot for breakfast. I had an original Midnight Cowboy movie poster that had already been signed by Jon Voight. One morning I asked Dustin if he would mind signing it as well. He could not have been nicer and was happy to. That framed poster hangs in our powder room.”
Realizing this chance would likely never come again, Diamont decided to just go for it. “As their trick-or-treating group was about to leave, I walked up to Dustin and said, ‘I know this is going to sound crazy, but would you come in our house for a moment? You have to see something pretty special that’s hanging in our powder room. This is no doubt a first, but you’re going to get a kick out of it.’” he said. “He and his wife couldn’t have been nicer, and in they came.
“He said, ‘That’s an original poster. I wish I could sign it for you. Oh, it’s already signed.’” Diamont continued. “I told him that he had been nice enough to sign it for me over 20 years earlier at the CoralTree Cafe.”
After chatting a bit in the entranceway, Diamont asked if they could take a photo together, given the unusual circumstances. “He said, ‘Of course, but we have to go back in the bathroom and take it in front of the poster,’” the B&B star smiled. “Amazing. Cindy was dealing with trick-or-treaters, so his incredibly sweet and patient wife took the picture having to basically straddle the toilet! Too funny! Classic! What a lovely guy! So there you have it… Rainman and Dollar Bill in the toilet together on Halloween!”
