Once the unlikeliest of stars, at 75 Dustin Hoffman is a first-time director with Quartet, starring Maggie Smith, in theaters now.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, Hoffman shares personal photos from his life during the ’50s to the ’80s and reflects on everything from his time “as a sex symbol” to his role as a woman in 1982’s hit Tootsie.

But don’t think this is his swan song! “I’m just getting started,” he tells PEOPLE. “I like to think I’m in the second act of life – and there are three.”
