Anthony Hopkins Being DIVA On Thor Set!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersSuper Seniors


Not cool, Anthony Hopkins! Just because you played freaky ass Hannibal Lector doesn't mean you run the show!!

Apparently there's some serious dramz going down on the set of the movie Thor because the Hop doesn't think his inexperienced co-star Chris Hemsworth, who plays the title character, cuts it as an actor!

A source says:

"Anthony has not tried to hide his disapproval of Chris' acting skills. Chris is definitely the least-experienced actor on set, but he's trying. He respects Anthony a great deal, and it looks like he's trying to grin and bear all of his criticism. Anthony keeps complaining that they're shooting too many scenes inside the L.A. studio and not enough on location. Everyone is cranky and frustrated that it's taking so long. But it's a very high-tech movie, and it just takes time to get things right. He isn't used to this kind of work, and his pessimism is really starting to wear everyone down."

Puh-LEASE. Didn't he have to do all that weird CGI shiz for Beowulf?

Sounds to us like he's just acting like an old fart!! It's not like he signed up for a serious, character driven think piece!

The movie is called Thor! Act like an adult!

    Oh c'mon Anthony just fuck Chris up the butt already and get it over with!

  2. 2

    Chris, HEMSWORTH! Not Hemworth. Come on now Perez! And I'm surprised you didn't mention he's miley's boyfriends brother

  3. 3

    Perez, i think i have an epiphany about why some people disliek you! You are not a real person. You have not established yourself as a real person. Someone with values, and principles, and a general philosophy that runs your life.

    You just spout shit, whenever you think you can get away with it. (like so many of us at times) I am quite sure that Mario is a very nice wonderful human being, with the best sense of humour that side of the Mississippi (this side of the Mississip' is mine!)

    I think this Perez Hilton is someone who (for humanity's sake) will go away as soon as more people start to realize that this negativity is NOT something they want in their lives.

    What good does Perez do for the greater good? You must be the chnage you want to see in this world ; Ghandi.

    That's SIR Anthony Hopkins.

    Umm, Sir Anthony is a two time academy award winning actor. He has been doing this so long and everything he is in is just fantastic. He has every right as an actor to voice his opinion and be cranky. He has paid his dues. If I were a director, producer, and got Anthony Hopkins on my film, whatever he says goes. And the young actors better cut it. In the Army, the Sargeants are the ones who run the guys. they march them, order them around and make them the soldiers they become. Most officers who come in are young, college kids. These sargeants are 20 or longer years experience. Even though the officers are the higher command, the NCO's are the ones that they listen to and let rule the roost because of their experience. Its called respect. Anthony deserves respect. Adn when someone like you has to talk badly about him and criticize him, well, your credibility goes out the window. You cannot shine a light next to mr. hopkins. To hell with you, the source and the young actor if you guys cannot show some respect to Sir Anthony Hopkins.

    I like and respect Anthony Hopkins, but come on - this is THOR we are talking about. Not exactly a top level project, and he is clearly doing it for the money.

  8. 8

    Anthony Hopkins has never been anything more than a massive over-acting ego

  9. 9

    OMG! An inexperienced actor in a big Hollywood movie! Unheard of! No wonder Sir Tony's all hissy. I wonder how the newbee got the part. Talented genes no doubt.

  10. 10

    I have a lot of respect for Anthony Hopkins but he shouldn't be mean to young up and comers!

  11. 11

    HA HA! They should have case, Alexander Skarsgard instead!!

  12. 12

    dude if the movie is called Thor and the actor playing Thor can't act….I mean c'mon! And SIR Anthony Hopkins is the man

  13. Rynne says – reply to this


    Beowulf sucked so hard. So hard.

  14. 14

    BTW it's Lecter not Lector!

  15. 15

    he is Sir Anthony fuckin Hopkins, he can do whatever the fuck he wants!!!
    if the blond guy sucks…too bad for him

    Re: Rican31 – hell yeah!

  16. 16

    If Hop thinks hes a crap actor he probably is..I've watched this guy in Push and the Fantastic Four's and..He basically played the same guy. But anywho I love how bias perez is (which most post/updates are from staff and not actually from perez but w/e)

  17. 17

    Re: stellagranos – Read a thor comic book then you'll realise that the film needs to be taken seriously and not to hire some pretty boy homo to play thor. He was only hired so 12 year old girls will see it. So shut up you dumb bitch

  18. 18

    I spent a bunch of time with Anthony Hopkins about 10 years ago, and he's not a diva. He is a professional, and a very hard worker. He treated everyone on the movie set with much respect, except the couple of slackers. So if it walks like a duck….

  19. 19

    Re: Rynne – thanks, I thought I was the only one that hated that fucked up mess…

  20. 20

    he looks good with horns!

  21. 21

    Once again you show your ignorance and your predjudice towards young hunky actors no matter the caliber of their talent. Anthony Hopkins is one of the greatest actors of our time. If you had your way, every movie would be populated by Twinks and Disney kids and Hunks you fantasize would be available to you.

  22. 22

    That story's so not true! GossipCop said it was bullshiz hours ago.

  23. 23

    Funny how you call someone else a diva, Perez. Do I need to bring up what happened at KTLA and how that reporter owned the shit out of you?

  24. 24

    Sir Anthony Hopkins, Thank you for making sure this movie is done CORRECTLY. With all the accomplishments this man has under his belt along with the greatness of his works so far, bitches better shut up. This new actor or wannabe actor better listen to him. He knows what he is saying and if I was him and the lead actor of a film I was in was not living up to expectation, I would say somethign as well. What good is a movie if the only good acting comes from co stars and not the main star? Just shut up newbies. Bow to a legend and take notes. Not criticisms.

  25. 25

    Ah, what do I expect from a douchebag like you to rip on Sir Anthony Hopkins, a fucking TALENT BEYOND ANYTHING. All you're interested in is cyber-stalking young boys (Bieber) and well, you know. (Caca). You are so fucking pathetic and lame. It's actually fun to make fun of you.

  26. 26

    Tony's an icon - but c'mon. You'd think he'd have the grace to help a new actor. Boo to Tony on this one.

  27. 27

    Re: FL Shady Bitch – I agree with you - but I'd think Tony could do it with a little bit of dignity.
    Also, the technical part of it may still be over his head re the differences in filming.

  28. 28

    Re: jeanmarie – Oh. Just saw this. Hmmmmm. But, he is 10 years older, and he wouldn't be the first person who was 70's-80's and was cranky.

  29. 29

    i would like to know this source of yours perez sometimes i wonder if u make shit up

  30. 30

    Right. The movie is called Thor. How serious can it be??

    At what point do all Men turn into crotchety old farts who know everything, yell at inanimate objects, curse at the wind, and eschew everything new? That includes people and technology. When does arrogance parallel ignorance?


  31. Laura says – reply to this


    Actually, I think playing freaky ass Hannibal Lector does mean you can run the show, especially to some newbie kid.

  32. fiona says – reply to this


    You are stepping into dangerous territory. Sir Anthony is iconic and authentic. It is a shame that some director cast a pretty boy for teen appeal, rather than someone who deserves a chance to work with a master.
    You are an immature poser.

    He is brilliant and a fascinating actor.

  33. 33

    Chris Hemsworth is adorable and I love him to pieces, but let's be honest here, he IS inexperienced and has a long way to go before he can be classed as a serious actor. A few years on 'Home and Away' is hardly experience!
    But agreed Perez, the movie is Thor… so why is Anthony Hopkins even in it?

  34. 34

    Re: Rican31 – well said.

  35. 35

    Re: Monica Anabella – WAIT! what happened at KTLA? I want to know!

  36. 36

    is the beowulf movie mentioned in the post about the book?

  37. 37

    Re: Mike-N-NYC – actually hollywood is one tag teamed game.perez gives these celebrities so much publicity who otherwise wouldnt receive it

  38. 38

    Is it too much that the actors in the movies that we pay good money to see can actually ACT!?!? I freaking hate cringeing through bad acting performances. I'm no film making genius and I can see they suck, why couldn't the person casting, directing, editing, producing, etc see it! Usually you can tell where a movie's waning from the previews. If its the acting they are just posing in the previews and saying a dramatic emphasis because if they say anymore it'll be clear they suck; if its the comedy they show jokes that should be too funny for commercials and thereby killing it when you actually see it during the film after you've already figured out that they didn't have anything else; and if its the story they make the previews so confusing you can't tell what the hell is going on.
    All I see out of young actors now a days is dramatic emphases…
    I can't even focus if the acting is really bad. I'm with Hopkins on this one. Don't be stealing 2 hours and 10 bucks from me and giving me dribble.

  39. 39

    Re: AlchyAnonMS – You have a point - but Tony was the newbie once - can't he, who is SO talented, help the kid out?

  40. 40

    HAHA Chris is a fucking dick, he has no talent and a huge ego, I did Red Dawn with him and the asshole always held up filming acted like a prima-donna and treated everyone like shit. Anthony Hopkins is a real talent, Kenneth Branaugh is an amazing actor and director, Chris is plaing with the big boys, he will either make or break Thor, he needs to shape up and be a real actor, not act like a movie star, Hopkins has the best rep in Hollywood so if he is upset he has a reason. I may never have the career of Chris or Hopkins, but I have enough talent to know Chris is just another created Hollywood product. I am not saying this from a jealous stand-point, I may or may not break as an actor it doesn't matter to me, I am more then capable of knowing who is talented or a flash in the pan. Chris save your money, don't be a hollywood asshole, study your craft, and always be prepared to play with the big boys.. This is probably going 2 kill me in the biz but it's the truth….

  41. 41

    This is what happens when actors are chosen based on looks over talent, you get stuck with mediocre acting the kiddiots eat up (see Twilight).

  42. 42

    Don't you refer to Sir Anthony as an 'old fart' you FUCKER! How DARE you! You are not fit to offer your services as his TOILET!!

  43. 43

    Re: Lulu-2 – To me after working with Chris and seeing the way he acted to everyone and including myself, it's not about being new in the biz, on Red Dawn he was the big dog, and yes he is the bigger dog in Thor, although Hopkins is truly a bigger dog, and chris is consumed with being a movie star rather then being a good actor, maybe he will wise up probably not cause he has been put on a fast track to stardom, so the only way he will learn is from failures, I sure hope from my personal standpoint red dawn is a success, but Thor could fail because Chris does not have the work ethic to make the movie a success, he needs to remember he is an actor before he is a movie star. I am an actor a proud working actor, if by chance I land a huge role, I become a movie star I will only view myself as an actor that does successful movie…

  44. 44

    Like me, he's upset that Alexander Skarsgard wasn't cast as Thor.

  45. 45

    "freaky ass Hannibal Lector"?
    wow. it really goes to show that you know nothing about anything other then your favorites.
    Anthony Hopkins is an acting legend, so, he can bitch on his set as much as he wants.

  46. 46

    If Sir Anthony tells the director "the sky is pink", the director should replay "yes it is".

  47. @v@ says – reply to this


    Hopkins could put his experience and coaching where his complaints are and lend young Hemsworth a little invaluable help. That's how you mentor, and make loyal friendships. Maybe Hopkins isn't feeling well.

  48. 48

    hey give the guy some credit, he did act on home and away for years. im sure thats gotta count as some experience even if it's not wonderful experience!

  49. 49

    Re: NookiesWA – NookiesWA… you are a FUCKING MORON! Before you go commenting on a certain person…make sure you've got you're thinking of the right person
    Chris Hemsworth is not the guy off 'Push' and 'Fantastic Four', THAT GUY is named Chris Evans. Chris Hemsworth is an australian actor (A.K.A Liam Hemsworth's older brother) from 'Star Trek' and 'A Perfect Getaway'.
    Getcha shit straight homie…

  50. 50

    That would be SIR Anthony to you lard ass. In contrast, you're worthless and you're a diva.

  51. 51

    Chris Hemsworth used to be in a ridiculous, dramatic soap opera back home in Australia, before he ditched this beautiful country for LA, called 'Home And Away'. It's like our answer to 'Days of our Lives' or 'The Young and the Restless'. It sucks, the plots have been done, and re-done, and re-done. But I digress.
    I used to watch that show every single night, and Chris's acting was not that great. In fact, he was average at best. So I can understand why Sir Anthony Hopkins might be a little frustrated with him. I fully agree with him.

  52. 52

    You do know that behind Sir Anthony's name is a wall of credentials. So he can act like a Diva all he wants. He doesn't need the money,

  53. 53

    Oh please….any time he talks about his costars he has always been gracious. Maybe he's demanding a certain standard/quality of work that many younger actors don't have these days.

  54. 54

    talk shit about any other actor, but Anthony Hopkins is a legend. he gets to act however he wants. who the fuck is Chris Hemsworth anyway? he should be grateful to be acting alongside such a legend.

  55. 55

    Pig Face, sounds like the production is a train wreck and he's not used to working with a bunch of amateurs. Good on him for calling them on their ineptness.

  56. 56

    Re: Mike-N-NYC – I couldn't explain it here without butchering the hilarity of it. Youtube "perez hilton ktla".

  57. 57

    anthony hopkins knows what he's doing and Thor is a cheap excuse for a superhero movie.

  58. 58

    Re: Anonymousactor11 – Got it. I don't know personally, and you have far more insight on this than I do.

  59. 59

    Need a baby THor?…My sons real name is Thor and is the blonde god who should play a 2 year old THOR!

  60. 60

    You are absolutley right Perez. How dare a seasoned, respected, talented Oscar winning actor expect his co-actors to actually be able to act! Doesn't he know that the new crop of "actors" don't know the first thing about acting? Doesn't he know that hardly any of them have even seen, or even heard of, an acting school? Doesn't he realize they are all just flashes in the pan that are put on the screen to look pretty and generate money from all the brainless tweens that'll pay to watch these morons take a shit if you gave them a chance? Come on Mr.Hopkins, get with the program will ya?!

  61. 61

    Why did he sign up for a movie called Thor? It sounds like a crap movie.

  62. 62

    I'm sorry Perez but I think you're wrong.
    His performance as Hannibal gives him every right to be a diva.
    and its SIR Anthony Hopkins.. you don't just get that title for nothing.
    Plus, I think this story is bullshit anyways.
    When he filmed the movie "Fracture" with Ryan Gosling, Ryan say that he was really supportive, and was always goofing around on set to make sure no one was taking themselves too seriously.
    I don't believe this story for a second.

  63. 63

    If this is true….wouldn't it be nicer for Sir Anthony to help the kid a bit? Then when the guy goes on to be a huge star and nails the performance (or any in the future) he could thank Sir Anthony over and over …instead he will just always think of him as a douche.
