Fun fact: Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins decided secretly that they’d play Hook and Smee as a gay couple. When Spielberg, the director, found out, he was furious.
I just think it’s hilarious.
The movie veteran tells Playboy magazine, “Bob Hoskins and I were rehearsing and suddenly we looked at each other and realised it at the same time. We said, ‘These guys are gay….’ and it was fun.
“Suddenly we rehearsed it that way: ‘Get over here, Smee. Give me a foot massage.’
“We went to Spielberg… and he said, ‘This is a kids’ movie.’” - Source
I find it very interesting that Spielberg finds a playful on screen homosexual couple more harmful towards children than a scene about killing yourself.
HEY HERE’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
maybe spielberg didn’t want any kind of sexual overtones whatsoever.
heterosexual ones would have been inappropriate, too.
he probably would have gotten in trouble for making their homosexual relationship look unhealthy and sadistic BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN, they are co-dependent as fuck.
and also, when actors do stuff without telling their directors, IT IS ANNOYING AS A DIRECTOR.
just because something is hetero, it isn’t better.
just because something is homo, it isn’t better.
so fucking relax and watch hook because this movie is perfect.
I care very much about aviation.
