Dustin Hoffman got in touch with his feminine side for his role as a cross-dressing actor in 1982 comedy Tootsie and picked up his daughter from school while dressed in drag.

The Rain Man star put his acting talents to the test when he collected Jenna Hoffman, who was 10 at the time, from school and managed to fool even her teacher into thinking he was a woman.

The actor tells British newspaper the Sunday People, "Every man has a woman inside him. Every man has thought about what it would be like to be a woman. I was preparing for the role in Tootsie so one day I just decided to dress up and pick my daughter up from school to see if her teacher realised. She didn't."
