Hopkins blames money, fame for wild antics of troubled starsNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:34 am ICT by admin
“When you get too much money, you take yourself too seriously. When you get too much publicity, you end up in jail or driving cars drunk as a mother,” Contactmusic quoted Hopkins, as saying.
“I think it’s to do with money and power, prestige and fame, and I think people go a little nuts. Its sad, but I’m not making a judgment. Actors do take themselves seriously.
Talking about his own life, ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ star said that despite all the money and fame, he’s tried to keep his lifestyle as “light” as possible.
“I’ve got no problem with it, except I want to say, ‘Lighten up, it’s only a movie, it’s a stupid movie.’ I’ve always had that attitude and it’s taken me a long time to get to this Zen-ed out approach to it all.
“I’ve had a great life as an actor and I’ve been well-paid for it, but I try and keep it light,” he added. (ANI)
