Sir Anthony Hopkins has revealed that he owes his new skinny look to serious dieting.
The Silence of The Lambs star has shed 80 pounds over 10 months after getting serious with his diet.
The actor sparked health concerns last year (09) by sporting a slim new frame.
However, he has said that he just needed to lose weight after years of eating badly.
"I got tired of being heavy, so I went on a really good regime of eating healthy and exercising for an hour a day," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Men's Journal magazine.
"I'm not a nutty, macrobiotic kind of guy, but I enjoy being alive," he added.
