This interview with Dustin Hoffman surprised me when he broke down in tears talking about playing the character Tootsie in the film on the same name. In the film, Hoffman plays the part of a struggling actor that ends up dressing as a woman in the hope of getting a gig.

During the making of the film, Hoffman had asked the make up artists if they could make him look like a more beautiful woman but they explained that is the best they could do. At this point he had an ‘epiphany’ and made the realisation that some women have to deal with not looking ‘beautiful’ every day of their lives. ┬áHe explains that if he was a guy on the street and he saw himself as a woman, he would not give him the tim of day, even though he knows how interesting he can be.

He had made the realisation that women are far more than their looks and that it is really quite sad that a lot of women who are maybe not so good looking will often never get the chance to meet guys because of this. Even though they could have a great heart and lots in common with that guy.
