    Dustin Hoffman tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross about creating the character of Dorothy Michaels in Tootsie:



Before we started shooting, I said … “Well, the first thing that comes to mind is I’m not a very attractive man, nor have I ever been and, if I looked like this as a woman I would have [had] a lot of trouble and I really felt that the men I would be attracted to would not be attracted to me and then … I would not get married and compromise on some guy just to be married. I would probably give my life to my art and that was the beginning of this character named Dorothy Michaels.
