Actor Dustin Hoffman gave his 23-year-old son JAKE an unusual gift recently - hundreds of free condoms.

The OSCAR-winner took the contraceptives as payment after giving a speech at the University Of California In Los Angeles (UCLA).

He tells U+A magazine, "I came home, went to Jake's room where he was lying on his bed talking on the phone... I walked over and spilled all of them on his head, hundreds of condoms."
