Anthony Hopkins News Archive
Chris Hemsworth is playing the muscle-popping Thor in the upcoming movie, Thor.
He’s also on the most recent issue of Men’s Health and looking super hawt. Inside the issue he discusses role models, caves in Australia, and acting.
Check out these excerpts:
On his role models
“Anthony Hopkins. His whole approach to this business, his work ethic and attitude on set was inspiring, however many films down the track he still has that and he still is excited to be there and treats everyone as equals and everything he does, he is an impressive person. I love Paul Giamatti, Johnny Depp, Al Pacino, and Matt Damon, ya know, I could go on and on.”
On fearlessly searching caves in Australia as a kid
“We built wooden swords and hammered nails into them, and we checked out the cave. My friends and I were convinced we’d meet some ghosts and devils.”
On why he loves being an actor
“I always loved film, but never thought about it as a career choice. I had a different idea of what I wanted to do professionally every week. You know, I was a lawyer one week, a doctor, a sportsman in some way, and then I found out I can pretend to do all those things in acting.”

Being a world-famous actor doesn’t mean you won’t have low moments in life.
"She met me ten years ago when I was shut down. Shut down for some years. I didn't feel shut down at that time. I felt I was quite happy. But I was dealing with slight depression. Not trusting anyone. Certainly not trusting women.”
"Everyday she wakes up happy. She's very positive about everything. I learnt from her just to take life as it comes. So I live my life in non-expectation. My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier."
OMG we love his outlook on life! Do your best, but don’t expect too much and you’ll never be disappointed!

Anthony Hopkins’ weight used to be like the beginning of a roller coaster — steadily climbing and showing no signs of ever going down. Fortunately, in the last two years he’s turned things around and dropped 75 pounds.
“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.”
In case six days a week at the gym doesn’t sound impressive enough, Anthony is 73!! So inspiring!!
