Martha Stewart loves serving a good dinner, but she apparently once feared she’d be the main course for her then-boyfriend, Sir Anthony Hopkins!
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, the lifestyle guru revealed that the reason she dumped the Silence of the Lambs star in the ‘90s was because he was too good at his job — meaning, she had trouble separating him from his onscreen persona, Hannibal Lector, and feared he might take a bite out of her IRL!
The revelation came during a rousing game of “Where’s the lie?”, which saw the 80-year-old reading three facts about herself and Ellen DeGeneres having to guess which one was made up.
During the second round, Martha claimed she dated Hopkins but broke up with him because she couldn’t stop thinking of him as the cannibalistic serial killer he portrayed on the big screen, that she was asked to host Saturday Night Live and her biggest regret was saying “no,” and that she has a tattoo of her dog Creme Brulee on her foot.
