Anthony Hopkins' Skinny Wardrobe

Sir Anthony Hopkins gave all his clothes away to charity because they no longer fitted him.

The 'Silence of the Lambs' actor recently lost 80lbs after putting himself on a strict diet but says his body shape changed so much all of the items in his wardrobe were too big for him.

He said: "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."

The Oscar-winning star credits his wife Stella Arroyave for helping maintain his weight loss, which he achieved by eating just 800 calories a day and going to the gym six times a week.

He told the NY Post newspaper: "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 was addicted to bread, cookies, whatnot. I love all the bad stuff."

Hopkins, 73, has previously said he went on a diet because he hated himself being big.

He said: "I got tired of being heavy, so I went on a really good regime of eating healthy and exercising for an hour a day. I'm not a nutty, macrobiotic kind of guy, but I enjoy being alive."
