Dustin Hoffman on Brainwashing and Invisible Women

Dustin Hoffman as Tootsie is easily one of the best performances ever by any actor. Hoffman was annoyingly, famously careful in his research bringing this character to life but in the process it made him think differently about women. One of the laments in watching how Hollywood is changing is that the actors and filmmakers who came of age in the late ’60s and early ’70s are going away. There are no brilliant minds to replace them. It was an era of smart actors, assertive women, political action, daring cinema, Blood on the Tracks for godssakes.  Though it was mostly before my time I can’t help but continually look back at the great generation of artists that era produced.  I am hoping that soon there will be prominent actors like Dustin Hoffman who are not afraid to think and to say things like this (thanks to @maxthegirl):
