Something Attractive

This has been all over the Internet lately, and has generated a lot of discussion, some of it relevant, some of it . . . less so.

And while I can’t help thinking that Adam Mordecai wasn’t wrong when he titled this clip, “Dustin Hoffman Breaks Down Crying Explaining Something That Every Woman Sadly Already Experienced,” I also can’t help hoping that because Dustin Hoffman said it, some people might actually listen.

Because it’s rare that anyone with Mr. Hoffman’s professional stake in personal attractiveness admits with this amount of sincerity that interesting people of any gender affiliation come in all shapes and sizes and levels of Officially Sanctioned Hotness.

And that it’s a crying shame and our loss when we let the last three words of the previous sentence stop us from paying attention to those interesting people.

Take it away, Mr. Hoffman:

  1. This interview is one of the most interesting and sincere celebrity discussions I’ve seen. I disagree with the title – not *every* woman understands – but hope more people start paying attention.

    And it’s been my experience that the more interesting people are lurking away from the swirl of the bright lights of The Beautiful People anyway. Now maybe I’m doing the reverse discrimination thing 🙂

    • I think everyone has been negatively judged on their appearance in some way at least once.

      And I tend to reverse discriminate, too–I wonder why I think TBP will be more likely to judge?

Talk to me!
