Anthony Hopkins: Chris Hemsworth eats tuna cans

Nov 5 2013, 10:26am CST | by Bang Movies

Sir Anthony Hopkins says Chris Hemsworth eats whole cans of tuna - ''including the can''.

The 'Hannibal' actor - who stars alongside Hemsworth in 'Thor: The Dark World' - joked about the 30-year-old's high protein diet and revealed how his ''amazing'' co-star kept in shape for the titular role in the new blockbuster.

Speaking on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' yesterday (04.11.13), he said: ''He's an amazing guy. You know he works out about five hours a day ... that's what he told me. And he eats whole cans of tuna, including the can, I think, because he has all that protein!''

The 75-year-old Oscar winner - who plays Thor's father Odin in the new film - also admitted he felt like the ''old guy'' next to his much younger stars.

He said: ''For me to be in a movie like this with beautiful women like Natalie Portman and Rene Russo, and then with Tom Hiddleston, it's fun to be part of. I'm the old guy in it.''

Hopkins - who was knighted by the Queen for his services to the arts in 1993 - even revealed that he struggled to understand the complicated script, which combines Marvel comic book superheroes with Nordic mythology, and often lied about his preparation during filming.

He said: ''I don't know much about Nordic mythology - so reading through these scripts, I'll leave that to the experts. I think, 'Well, I don't need to know all this. I can't make head nor tail of it.' So I learn all my stuff and when the director says, 'You know how this fits in?' I say, 'Oh yeah, yeah, yeah', but I don't really.''

He added: ''I just stand there, turn up in my armour and my beard and that's it. You don't need to over analyse it. ''

Hannibal: Mads Mikkelsen on Where Lecter Goes Next

Sep 15 2014 7:14pm CDT | Source: ign

One of the best shows on television, Hannibal manages to mix over the top, grandiose — and visually stunning — horror scenarios with beautifully measured performances that ground the material, despite the story’s bigger than life nature. At the center of this, of course, is the title character, played by Mads Mikkelsen. Overcoming the pressure that came with playing a role so memorably conveyed by Anthony Hopkins before him, Mikkelsen has succeeded ...
