Anthony Hopkins: “I lost too much, 75 pounds in two years”

Actor Anthony Hopkins admits he has lost “too much” weight. The 72-year-old legend says he’s dropped 75 pounds in two years.

“I lost too much, 75 pounds in two years,” he told the New York Post newspaper. “But I gained a little back in Europe. I was addicted to bread, cookies, whatnot. I love all the bad stuff.

“My wife’s no dictator, but she said I must stick to a regimen. So I’m in the gym six days a week, I power walk, live on 800 calories a day. No pasta. No seconds. A sandwich occasionally. Now I’m a health nut. I can’t get back into my wardrobe. I gave it all away to some mission. I tried tailoring the pants but they look ridiculous.

“I can’t do anything but act. I stumbled into the profession 55 years ago. I’m careless. I go astray. Misplace things. As an impractical kid I was hopeless. I’d do odd jobs. If I weren’t an actor I’d be a burglar or seafarer.”

Hopkins then discussed his role in new film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.

“Comedy is not my usual role. I’m not Dick Van Dyke, but this was a good part, and I enjoy offbeat New York Jewish humor,” he said.

“I can play any situation. My character is ‘afraid of being alone.’ I know one divorced Hollywood guy in his 60s who got into hookers. He died, alone, in six months. They can have it. I’m in my 70s, and I know.

“For seven years I’m with my third wife, who’s 18 years younger and a nurturer. I’m a loner. Very few friends. None actors. She has her Spanish lady friends around, and I love that. We have a ball. I’m not looking for women, but I do love the ladies.”
