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
