CATEGORIES Movie NewsSir Anthony Hopkins is best known for playing the crazy cannibal Hannibal Lecter, a man who devours his victims. But the acting legend would now rather spend his nights watching reality shows about crazy ladies. That's right: Hopkins is a fan of the TV series "Mob Wives."
In an interview with the Guardian, the "Silence of the Lambs" star was asked what his "ideal night" would be.
"Staying in and watching 'Mob Wives' on TV. I don't have many friends; I'm very much a loner," said Hopkins. "As a child I was very isolated and I've never been really close to anyone. Ask nothing, expect nothing. That's my creed. We're all just a bunch of sinners crashing around in the darkness."
Perhaps "Mob Wives" provided inspiration for his recent classical album, "Composer"? Either way, future Anthony Hopkins reviewers should take note: do not snark "Mob Wives" or ask the actor about training himself "not to blink" when he played Hannibal Lecter. (The Guardian managed to do the latter: "What a stupid question. You don't need to train. You just keep your eyes open," said Hopkins.)
