It looks like Anthony Hopkins is the latest star to join the “guess how much weight I’ve lost!” club. The venerated actor revealed to the New York Post’s Cindy Adams that he’s shed 75 pounds in two years – although he added that he’s gained a bit of it back.
“I was addicted to bread, cookies, whatnot. I love all the bad stuff,” he said. “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.”
