The star feels too scared to dine with the iconic actor
Luke Hemsworth recently admitted he was too “scared” to share a breakfast table with his Westworld co-star Sir Anthony Hopkins.
The 35-year-old actor, known as the older brother of Liam and Chris Hemsworth, didn’t shy away from calling the co-star “lovely” while admitting he was too nervous in his presence.
He told Vulture: “I get to do a few things with Anthony, and I wouldn’t say I was hanging out with him, but yeah, he’s a lovely, lovely gentleman.
He’s quite happy to have a chat. I’ve met him before, so it definitely makes it a little bit easier and helped me calm down my nerves a little bit that’s for sure. The first thing he says to me is, ‘How’s Chris?’
He actually invited me to have breakfast with him and I just couldn’t do it because … I just … it’s too scary! It’s exactly that reaction of like, ‘I can’t go and have breakfast — you’re Tony Hopkins! What am I going to talk about?'”
But the star is eager to get over his fear and have breakfast with the legendary actor someday. He continued: “It just hasn’t come to fruition yet. I’m still working myself up to it.”
Luke isn’t the only one who has felt intimidated by Mr. Hopkins. Evan Rachel Wood had recently burst into “happy tears” after filming her first Westworld scenes alongside the Silence of the Lambs actor.
She admitted: “He really is the greatest actor I’ve ever worked with. I did a couple scenes and afterwards just had to go into a corner and weep.
And someone found me and said, ‘Oh my God, are you OK? Did the scene go badly?’ I was crying. And I went ‘No, it went really well. I’m just crying because I’ve hit a milestone as an actor. That’s a little overwhelming and I’m taking a moment.'”
