It’s time to listen to the opinion of people using their brains. That means philosophers, spiritual leaders, poets, authors, and not stupid actors or singers just saying on the screen what was written by others.
Sir Anthony Hopkins, of ‘Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘The Two Popes’ fame, says he keeps his political opinions to himself for good reason. Other, more outspoken performers may want to take a page from his wise book these days.
Winner of the Academy Award for his memorable portrayal of Hannibal Lecter, Sir Anthony is no fan of opinionated actors, and he doesn’t count himself as one.
“I don’t have any opinions,” Hopkins told fellow celebrity Brad Pitt for Interview Magazine. “Actors are pretty stupid. My opinion is not worth anything.”
Hopkins, 81, said he’s often asked for his opinion on developments in the world, but he’s not as eager to answer as other celebrities.
“There’s no controversy for me, so don’t engage me in it, because I’m not going to participate,” the actor said.
