As Dr. Hannibal Lecter, Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar and created one of the big screen's most memorable and terrifying characters. Part of the cannibal killer's mystique was, of course, that weird half hockey mask that's since become synonymous with The Silence of the Lambs. But it might have been different! Here are GIFs of Hopkins trying out different looks for the character via Redditor DonTago. And they're pretty fascinating. Enjoy!Read Full Story
(Getty)The love-fest surrounding Breaking Bad is far from over even though the series is. Binge watching sessions for those late to the game have turned the skeptical into believers, including Sir Anthony Hopkins. Though Britney Spears didn't dig on the Walter White, the revered Oscar winner certainly did. Hopkins was so impressed by the show, particularly the lead performance, that he went out of his way to tell Bryan Cranston he's the greatest.Thanks to Steven Michael Quezada's (Gomey) and...Read Full Story
There's a lot going on in the brand new poster for Thor: The Dark World. Heads float out of nowhere and each of the main characters are depicted in all of his or her otherworldly glory. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is clad in full Asgardian armor, while his love Jane (Natalie Portman) gets cuddly. As usual, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) makes it clear he probably just needs a little lovin' (or maybe just a hug). What the poster also depicts is the very real danger and threat from the evil Malekith, who...Read Full Story

The Bottom Line
Should you see it?
Lacking any authenticity, Hitchcock contains a campy unlikable performance by Anthony Hopkins and ignores real themes for cliched ones.
"You may call me Hitch. Hold the 'cock.'" Welcome to the world of Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock, a campy, ludicrous dramatization of Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock's relationship with his wife during the production of Psycho. Hitchcock wants to be Ed Wood, but it doesn't have a...Read Full Story
Total RecallDirected by Len WisemanStarring: Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan CranstonA remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, this new Total Recall really works as a brainless action flick. But it's mainly a missed opportunity to update the mistakes of the original or juice anything new out of the source material: Philip K. Dick's short story. It's essentially a two hour chase scene with no real payoff.See it? Nope.Full ReviewDiary of a...Read Full Story
Anthony Hopkins is a self-proclaimed "strange fellow" and seems like he's darn proud of it. At 72, who needs to be social and polite, anyway? He says he doesn't like socializing with other actors and talking about movies, and if he invites you over and you stay too long, he'll just go to bed. Take that! In an interview with German TV station TELE 5, he said: "If my guests go by car I already tell them on arrival that they immediately can start the engine again. Recently some friends...Read Full Story
Bauer Griffin Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins won over the whole crew of his upcoming film -- from his co-stars to the makeup artists -- when he showered them with personal gifts. A source on the set of the presently-untitled production from director Woody Allen said: "He has to be the nicest guy in showbiz. During filming he flew off for a weekend break to Italy and came back baring presents for everyone. He bought silk scarves for all the makeup girls and even painted them a picture each...Read Full Story
Bauer GriffinWelsh-born Silence of the Lambs star Anthony Hopkins never felt like he belonged in the UK because the nation's acting community is "so very strange." The 71-year-old actor, who started his career in on the London stage, said: I went to America years ago because I felt I didn't fit in here in England. I worked with some good people, like Judi Dench, but I never fitted in to a group of actors. I was on the outside; I was like a sore thumb. I didn't have any friends who were...Read Full Story
Actor Anthony Hopkins' beach house in Malibu, CA... Pix by SC/Flynet 2008 (Photo by Flynet Pictures) Celebrities love to complain about how rough it is to be in the public eye, constantly hounded by paparazzi hungry for shots of cellulite or no-panty-parties. On one level, I sympathize: it would definitely suck to wake up and get dressed knowing that whatever you wear will be scrutinized by legions of online critics (yes, me included). A day without makeup is, for many stars...Read Full Story
