As a man I find this really interesting. I’m probably as guilty as any other man of paying more attention to conventionally attractive women. Watch the video for the full effect.

When Dustin Hoffman was preparing for the role of Tootsie he tried out the makeup beforehand to see if he could pass as a woman.

He said to the makeup artists, “'now you have me looking like a woman, now make me beautiful.” They told him they couldn't, and this was his reaction:

It was at that moment I had an epiphany, and I went home and started crying. Talking to my wife, I said I have to make this picture, and she said, “Why?” And I said, “Because I think I am an interesting woman when I look at myself on screen. And I know that if I met myself at a party, I would never talk to that character because she doesn’t fulfill physically the demands that we’re brought up to think women have to have in order to ask them out.” She says, “What are you saying?” And I said, “There’s too many interesting women I have…not had the experience to know in this life because I have been brainwashed.”

Just another reason why he’s my favorite actor.
