On the theme of beauty, my mom shared on her Facebook page this short video interview with Dustin Hoffman. In 1982, he acted in a movie called Tootsie. I’ve never seen it, but it’s a comedy where his character dresses up as a woman in order to land an acting job.
Dustin Hoffman had an epiphany sort of moment when he realized that his female character, though passable, could not be made beautiful. He felt for a moment what some women have to face all their lives and it changed his point of view on that fleeting thing called beauty.
And I’m happy to see that I’m not the only one who gets teary-eyed about the topic.
