    Anthony Hopkins explains how he dropped 75 pounds in two years

    I had noticed that Anthony Hopkins had lost a great deal of weight in the past few years, but I always assumed that he was sick and that we would find out at some point what terrible illness he was fighting, and until then, we should just respect his privacy. As it turns out, however, Sir Anthony was actually on a diet. He wasnít sick. At least thatís what he claims. Heís promoting his supporting part in the Woody Allen ensemble, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, and he did an interview with NYPís Cindy Adams. He tells Adams that his wife put on a diet and made him go to the gym six days a week (Jesus), and that he lost 75 pounds in two years the old fashioned way - through hard work. Just so you know, I find this whole interview charming, and I would hit it:
    Sir Anthony Hopkins. In Woody Allenís delicious new film ďYou Will Meet a Tall Dark StrangerĒ ó about how after you get older, des perate, divorced, Viagra and so sexy you marry a hooker, it all goes lousy. Said Hannibal Lecter:

    ďComedy is not my usual role. Iím not Dick Van Dyke, but this was a good part, and I enjoy offbeat New York Jewish humor. I can play any situation. My character is Ďafraid of being alone.í I know one divorced Hollywood guy in his 60s who got into hookers. He died, alone, in six months. They can have it. Iím in my 70s, and I know.Ē

    ďFor seven years Iím with my third wife, whoís 18 years younger and a nurturer. Iím a loner. Very few friends. None actors. She has her Spanish lady friends around, and I love that. We have a ball. Iím not looking for women, but I do love the ladies.Ē

    Said newly slim Tony Hopkins: ďI 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 wifeís no dictator, but she said I must stick to a regimen. So Iím in the gym six days a week, I power walk, live on 800 calories a day. No pasta. No seconds. A sandwich occasionally. Now Iím a health nut. I canít get back into my wardrobe. I gave it all away to some mission. I tried tailoring the pants but they look ridiculous.Ē

    ďI canít do anything but act. I stumbled into the profession 55 years ago. Iím careless. I go astray. Misplace things. As an impractical kid I was hopeless. Iíd do odd jobs. If I werenít an actor Iíd be a burglar or seafarer.Ē
    [From The NY Post]
    ďShe has her Spanish lady friends around, and I love that. We have a ball. Iím not looking for women, but I do love the ladies.Ē How much would you love that? To be one of his wifeís girlfriends and get to go over to his house and flirt with him? But it does strike me that he probably is more comfortable being around women - he seems like that kind of man, doesnít he? I love those men. As far as his dieting and exercise - heís 73 years old! I understand that his wife wants him to be healthy, but let him have a cookie, for the love of God.

    That is especially extreme for a male, even an older one.

    His wife is 55, but would probably be flattered to be referred to as a child at this point.

    I love him too. He shouldn't lose another pound. He's in the gym six days a week and only 800 calories a day? Sounds like a diet from those pro-ana sites. His wife doesn't seem too young. She looks at least 50. Not saying she's old but she's not exactly a young piece of ass.

    It says his wife is 17 years younger so that makes her approximately 55 or 56, which is hardly a child. If he was running about with a 23 year old then I might raise and eyebrow and wait for him to go out with a bang and a smile on his face, but not for 55 and 72.

    If he's happy, who gives a fuck? She looks nice.

    Re:800 calories. I recently had a conversation with my Dr, i'm now on 1200 per day as I'm having a hard time loosing the weight. Anything over 1500 & I'm gaining. We had this conversation about it & if it doesn't happen I need to eat less & exercise more... So it could be that he's seen my Dr too... Lol!

    My dad is 2 yrs older than Hoppy (& look better if I day so myself) and he's not a big eater any more & lives a much more defender lifestyle.
    I still have a feeling that he eats 800/day but isn't counting the booze... He's not emaciated if you check out his waistband & 78 in 2 years is "steady" (3/4lb per week), he probably picked 800 out of the ether to sound "cool".

    Especially one that works out six days a week.

    I was just checking on another site:

    800 calories = two medium orders of McDonald's french fries. That combo would have to hold you over for the whole day.

    Or 800 calories would get you one and a half blueberry muffins from Dunkin Donuts.

    Well in all fairness I'm going to assume he's not dieting by only eating fast food, we're not talking about Morgan Spurlock here

    He does! He must have had a few procedures but still. Wasn't he a serious boozer at one time?
