Warning: If you watch this, you might cry too!
Dustin Hoffman has a viral video!
A 2012 interview has resurfaced where things get super emotional when the mega-star talks about his role in 1982's Tootsie!
In the Sydney Pollack-directed film, Dustin stars as Michael Dorsey, an actor struggzin' to find a job — until he dresses as a woman and lands a female lead on a soap opera!
Classic movie hilarity, right?
Not so much for Dusty!
In the interview, the actor explains going to the (movie) studio and asking for make-up tests so that he could see if he could walk down the streets of NYC dressed as a woman and not get weird stares!
"When we got to that point and looked at it on screen, I was shocked that I wasn't more attractive. I said, 'Now you have me looking like a woman, now make me a beautiful woman.' Because I thought I should be beautiful. … And they said to me, 'That's as good as it gets.'"
He then starts to cry, recalling a later convo with his wife about the standards of female beauty.
We don't want to give it all away, so watch the video (above) to see the emotionally unexpected interview!
