Dustin Hoffman Cries Over That Time ‘Tootsie’ Taught Him Women Should be Valued for More Than Their Looks [VIDEO]

Get ready to get out all your Monday feels — because Dustin Hoffman crying about women only being valued for their looks might make you misty too.

This video from the AFI Archives (circa late 2012) recently surfaced and features Hoffman breaking down into tears when discussing his makeup test for ‘Tootsie’ and what it made him realize about the ladies around him.

The revelation first came about when Hoffman realized that he could be a woman but he could not be a beautiful woman for the classic film, which in turn made him understand that there are legions of interesting and amazing women he probably never had the chance to know — because thanks to societal norms, he didn’t deem them attractive enough to talk to.

Cue Dustin Hoffman blubbering. Cue you crying along. And cue us virtually hugging Dustin Hoffman.
