Anthony Hopkins Had 'Anxiety' Over 'Thor' Eyepatch


Anthony Hopkins


Sir Anthony Hopkins suffered from 'moments of anxiety' while filming 'Thor', because his character's eyepatch restricted his vision and forced him to rely on others to guide him around the set.

The Welsh star Sir Anthony Hopkins portrays Odin, the King of Asgard, in the big screen Marvel adaptation, and had to have his right eye covered by a piece of gold metal as part of his costume.

Hopkins, 73, admits the temporary loss of eyesight impeded his ability to move around on his own - but that wasn't the only issue he encountered when he first began shooting.

He tells WENN, "They (costume designers) put it on the wrong eye first of all and I said, 'I think you made this for the wrong eye,' because it wouldn't fit... So they had another insert and put it in that (right) eye."

"The only problem was I had moments of anxiety because I had no three-dimensional vision. I felt very embarrassed to be guided onto the set because I'm not that old, but because I couldn't see."
