It sounds like it was all Dustin’s idea… but funny man Jason was more than happy to play along!

Jason Bateman shared a surprise kiss with Dustin Hoffman at a Lakers game June 3, and we’ve been dying to talk to the Arrested Development funny man about what really went down ever since. We got our wish June 9 at the Digitas Digital Newfront Conference in NYC, when Jason told HollywoodLife.com all about the infamous lip lock. “I’m the big winner there because I got to kiss a legend,” Jason, 41, told us exclusively.

“It was certainly a happy place to be that night!” he said of the basketball court’s romantic ambience.

So whose idea was it to share a man-kiss for all the world to see? It sounds like it was Dustin’s, as Jason said the 72-year-old Academy Award-winner leaned in to kiss him.

“He has soft lips,” Jason added to reporters.

Normally we’d say “TMI” to that one, Jason… but we loved the stunt kiss way too much!
