Many Hollywood stars have achieved impressive results in the fight against excess weight. But Sir Anthony Hopkins, due to his wife and an extreme diet, has gradually lost much weight.
The whole world knows Anthony Hopkins for his role as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. Of course, in his life the actor has nothing to do with his on-screen disgusting character – he is surprisingly fun, intelligent and friendly person.
Now, when Sir Anthony turned 73 year, he claims that he has reached his best physical form. And, looking at his latest pictures, we believe in it unconditionally.
According to Hopkins, to achieve such result in his age he was engaged in the gym six times a week. His daily diet was reduced to 1800 calories per day. Actually, he became a man obsessed with a healthy lifestyle, who was carefully watching what he ate, but he also adhered to a strict fitness regime.
Almost 10 years ago, the Oscar-winning actor with his third wife, Stella Arroyave (a native of Colombia, she is 18 years younger) went on an extreme diet. According to friends of the star couple, this diet involved a significant reduction of the volume of all the dishes.
Extreme diet allowed the actor to lose somewhere about 30 kilos.
However, a few years after that radical change, during the filming in Europe Hopkins gained several kilograms. Nevertheless, it was not a problem. We even think that it was right decision, because immediately after the weight loss the actor looked exhausted.
In general, Anthony Hopkins manages for quite long time to maintain a slim figure by the force of will and a charming young wife. Even years after his transformation he doesn’t come back to his previous condition and weight.
