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.)
