Thompson Begged Hoffman To Wear A Disguise

EMMA THOMPSON grew so tired of hitting the streets of Chicago, Illinois, with her STRANGER THAN FICTION co-star DUSTIN HOFFMAN, she insisted he wear a disguise. The RAIN MAN star refused to don a hat, scarf or glasses when he and the British actress went out for daily script-learning walks, and would be recognised at every turn. Thompson says, "There was no attempt to disguise the fact that he was Dustin Hoffman, which meant that you could get about two feet before somebody, over enthusiastic, would stop us, him rather, and go on and on and on and finish by inviting us for dinner. "It was quite irritating after a while, actually. And, so, I said, 'Why don't you wear a hat (as a disguise), I'll get you a hat.' "He said, 'No, no, then you'd just see my nose, I'd rather be recognised than look like an ageing Jew.'"
