The Seat of Heat
Jon Stewart: This is an acting question. This is about your career. [Which was m]ore harrowing for you to do as an actor: Have your teeth pulled by a Nazi in Marathon Man, drilled, or to be groped by Charles Durning in Tootsie?
Dustin Hoffman: Durning.
Jon Stewart: Because of the size of the man's hands.
Dustin Hoffman: And he really groped.
Jon Stewart: So in other words, he went for it. How many takes do you think he went?
Dustin Hoffman: Well, there were about forty-seven takes, we were on location. I mean, he's reputed to be heterosexual, but... [smiles] Charlie…
Jon Stewart: So there was some bruising?
Dustin Hoffman: Yes.
Jon Stewart: All right, fair enough.
