Dustin Hoffman got emotional about his role as a woman in 80s film 'Tootsie'.

The 75-year-old actor was disappointed he didn't look more beautiful when he saw himself in the mirror all dressed up as his character Dorothy Michaels.

He said: ''I was shocked that I wasn't more attractive. I said, 'Now you have me looking like a woman, now make me beautiful.'

''I thought I should be beautiful if I was going to be a woman. I would want to be as beautiful as possible.''

When the make-up team informed him they couldn't do anything to make him look more attractive, the actor had an ''epiphany'' and broke down.

He revealed in an interview with the American Film Institute: ''It was at that moment I had an epiphany, and I went home and started crying. Talking to my wife, I said, 'I have to make this picture', and she said, 'Why?' And I said, 'Because I think I am an interesting woman when I look at myself on screen.

''And I know that if I met myself at a party, I would never talk to that character because she doesn't fulfill physically the demands that we're brought up to think women have to have in order to ask them out.' ''
