Video shows Richard Dreyfuss trying on 5 dresses before anti-trans speech


Richard Dreyfuss

Tried on 5 different dresses

…Before the anti-trans rant

Richard Dreyfuss“The transphobic rant was apparently premeditated – because the guy was in a store right before he went on stage trying on dresses…and we got the video.

TMZ obtained surveillance footage from late May… showing Richard being helped by a number of employees at Worthy Girl Consignment in Beverly, Massachusetts – where he then took the stage and made a number of controversial remarks, especially against trans people.

As you can see, employees help the Oscar winner as he tries on 5 different looks… smiling and laughing with the people in the store before choosing one.

We’re told Richard ended up staying at the consignment store for about 30 minutes, eventually settling on the blue floral dress he wore on stage — which our sources say is from the plus-size brand Torrid and costs $20.99.

As we previously reported…the actor then made a controversial appearance at the Cabot Theater later Saturday night… where he stepped out in the dress in question before launching into a tirade about the trans community – among other inflammatory remarks.

Now, Worthy Girl Consignment is seriously pissed… with one employee telling us the actor’s comments insulted their core customer base, the LGBTQ+ community, which shocks them.

The employee adds that they thought RD was just a cute little old guy trying on dresses — and they could never have known he planned to do any of that.

It’s interesting… out of all the stores in Beverly, Richard chose Worthy Girl Consignment… because the business makes it clear that they are pro-LGBTQ+ by hanging a pride flag on their storefront.

It is unclear whether or not Richard realized the irony of the situation at the time. Regardless, we’re told the store is capitalizing on this controversy for a good cause, designing a Pride shirt referencing the incident — the proceeds of which will be donated to the North Shore Alliance for GLBTQ+ Youth.

We’ve contacted Richard’s representatives…so far, no response.
