Actor Anthony Hopkins: "I Lost Too Much Weight"

Silence Of The Lambs actor Anthony Hopkins admits he has lost “too much” weight.

Hopkins, 72, says he’s shed 75 pounds in two years, thanks to a harsh diet, cutting down the calories, and exercising six days a week.

“I lost too much, 75 pounds in two years, he told the New York Post.

“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.”

He added: “I got tired of being heavy, so I went on a really good regime of eating healthily and exercising for an hour a day,” he said.

“I’m not a nutty, macrobiotic kind of guy, but I enjoy being alive.”
