Martha Stewart, 72 is a well known American TV personality, writer and businesswoman. She had a brief affair with the Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins about a decade ago but ended it because she couldn’t help picturing him as Hannibal Lector, Hopkin’s famous character from ‘Silence of the Lambs’.
In an interview on Howard Stern’s radio show Martha admitted she had second thoughts about her relationship with Hopkins after watching him as the cannibalistic serial killer in the famous movie. She told Stern she wanted to invite Hopkins to her beautiful house in Maine but seeing a re-run of the film made her change her mind. Martha also expressed her regret about it not working out with Hopkins as they would have had a very nice relationship, in her opinion, but apparently her fear of Hopkin’s character was stronger. After all, who would want to have their brain eaten while sitting in the beautiful dining room of their house ?
