Cranky Anthony Hopkins calls method actors 'a pain in the ass'11/20/2012
Some people mellow in old age. Then there's 74-year-old acting legend Anthony Hopkins. In a recent interview, the star of the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock biopic (cleverly called "Hitchcock") unloaded on his method-acting peers and railed against those who campaign for an Oscar. When asked if he stayed in character as Hitchcock in between scenes, you could almost hear him bristle. "I think that's a lot of crap," he said, calling actors who do "a pain in the ass." (Hear that, Daniel "Abraham Lincoln" Day-Lewis?) And he wants nothing to do with the phrase "Oscar buzz," either. "People … kissing the backsides of famous producers … makes me want to throw up," he said. Tell us how you really feel. [Source]
