Anthony Hopkins Loves Mob Wives

Sunday, January 29, 2012

SIR Anthony Hopkins loves a quiet night in watching Mob Wives.

The Silence of the Lambs star admitted he is a loner who prefers his own company to other people’s and loves to watch the VH1 show which follows the lives of four women whose husbands or fathers are doing time for Mob-related activities.

“My idea of a good night is staying in and watching Mob Wives on TV,” he said. “I don’t have many friends; I’m very much a loner. As a child I was very isolated and I’ve never been really close to anyone. Ask nothing, expect nothing. That’s my creed. We’re all just a bunch of sinners crashing around in the darkness.”

Anthony also revealed despite the perception that he was close friends with legendary fellow Welsh actor Richard Bruton, the pair were never pals.

“I don’t know where everyone gets the idea we were good friends,” he said.” I suppose it’s because we are both Welsh and grew up near the same town.

“I didn’t really know him at all. I once went up to his sister’s house to ask for his autograph which he gave me and the only other time I met him was in his dressing room in New York when he was performing in Equus.”
