Hopkins: I hate arrogant directors

Anthony Hopkins will walk off set if the director annoys him

Sir Anthony Hopkins has admitted to walking off set if he is not happy with the way directors work.

The 74-year-old Thor star - who has just released an album of classical music he composed himself - told The Guardian he doesn't like directors who are arrogant and imposing.

Sir Anthony said: "I can't stand directors who try to micro-manage everything.

"When it happens these days I just walk off set, saying if they don't like the way I'm doing it they can get someone else. Life's too short to deal with other people's insecurities."

The Welsh actor is famous for his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of The Lambs, for which he won the Oscar for best actor.

But Sir Anthony revealed: "It was very nice to get an Oscar but now it just rusts and tarnishes on the sideboard near the TV. "
