| Filed under: Film Flickers

Anthony Hopkins has gone through some dramatic changes over the last few years: 75 pounds to be exact!

“I lost too much, 75 pounds in two years. 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.”

800 calories a day is no easy regimen. Congrats on the weight loss! You look better than ever!

    ' 800 calories a day' is STUPID. And I cannot belive I am using that word towards one of the people I admire most but it is not HEALTHY.

    What ever happened to eating a BALANCED diet and plenty of exersize? As soon as he comes of this '800 calories a day' he will put it all back. Pointless really.



  2. 2

    Happy for him. Losing weight is very difficult.



  3. 3

    huffington post? yesterday?



  4. 4

    um, 800 calories a day is NOT good. no way to lose weight.



  5. 5

    800 cal a day is very unhealthy. Your body can burn more than that just doing nothing. It's great he lost all that weight but an average man needs at least 1800 cal a day to function.



  6. 6

    hes gonna bounce right back. 800 calories is unhealthy. At a certain point the body is gonna start holding on to food much faster, because it's in panic mode.

    Why Anthony have you done this to yourself! Your wife must be mad to allow you to lose so much weight. You look so much older…..please put a little back on. I want to see the old Anthony not the new model…..bring him back…just love the acting, keep up the good work :) xx

    800 calories/day doesn't sound very healthy to me……….esp for a man his age……….



  9. 9

    Older people who lose weight, tend to look a little sickly to me. Like Forest W.



  10. 10

    Firstley 800 calories a day is not healthy and secondly he does NOT look better. I'm all for losing a bit of weight and improving ones health but not to this extent. He looks ill!



  11. 11

    he looked better before. Old people just don't look good thin like that…it ages them



  12. 12

    800 calories a day is horribly unhealthy. Way to encourage eating disorders.



  13. 13

    Not nearly as handsome now. While I'm happy for him that he may feel better, he has accomplished looking like a frail old man. :( One of my fave actors, too!



  14. 14

    While I think he looked robust and healthy before his weight loss I doubt 800 calories a day is too little for his age…you really do eat, and need, much less food as you age.

    I agree with all the posters thus far: too thin; looks frail rather than toned (a hazard of simply being older); for a man of his size — 800 calories unhealthy;one of the great actors of the present day. One thing that age has yet to take away: his twinkling stark blue eyes (have only known one other individual in my life who had "twinkling" eyes).

    this kind of thinking is exactly why this country is going into the sh%$^#@.
    800 calories a day is sick and the fact that people are applauding this is sicker.

    he always looked amazing! so fuck you!



  18. 18

    I agree with most posters - not a good look for him - as you age - you need a little extra padding - otherwise you look old and frail.



  19. 19

    He looks horrible!!! He has no beat on the bones…..Probaly burned what little muscle he had with the whole 800 calorie diet thing. No nutrionist or physical trainer would recommend that diet for anyone let alone an 80 year old man. He did a crash diet that younger stars would do for a quick trim up for a role. Not to sustain a normal healthy life



  20. 20

    He looks better when he's pogdy. I love Anthony Hopkins :)



  21. 21

    No, not a good change. He looks unhappy and unhealthy.



  22. 22

    Oh Em Gee! In all seriousness - 800 calories a day is disgusting. It's not healthy and basically he is starving himself as an anorexic would. Even on a 2000 calorie/day regimen, he would probably still be in a deficit which would allow him to lose weight at a normal and healthy rate. He is starving himself to an early grave. What an imbecile.



  23. 23

    I am a trainer and weight management consultant, and would NEVER put a full grown man on 800 cals a day! Who is he listening to?



  24. 24

    800 cals a day is nowhere near healthy!! Especially for a grown man!!



  25. 25

    Why? I mean, why did his wife feel it necessary that he lose 75lbs and in that manner? Is she trying to kill him maybe? He seems to be crying out publicly for help.



  26. 26

    800 calories is insane, and being starving to look worse than he did before, is kinda stupid : /

    Ridiculous starvation diet for a man who was close to normal. If he doesn't develop severe osteoporosis, he might want to check his iron among other things to make sure his levels are all ok. BTW, people who walk around with a little extra weight live longer than stick people. He needs a nutritionist, not an 800 calorie a day gulag. Gain some back eating the right things to feed your body. 800 calories a day is a control issue thing, and would leave him with enough energy to take a nap.



  28. 28

    No! Too skinny!

    Re: syd3 – that wasn't Dumbledore by any chance? Lol.

    800 calories a day is only good for hollywood waifs that don't plan to live past 45 years old!!
    He's older and should know better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He looks like he's sick.



  31. 31

    800 calories a day is so unhealthy it's just like anorexia. He should be on 1500 for a good balanced diet at his current weight AT LEAST. He is exercising so much he isn't taking in any calories AT ALL. Get a nutritionist and a personal trainer and get a clue.

    He looked better before….
