AceShowbiz - Martha Stewart used to date Anthony Hopkins, but their relationship didn't last long. As for why they decided to split, the celebrity chef revealed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that she was creeped out by one thing related to the actor.
In the Thursday, January 20 episode of the talk show, Martha revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that they called it quits after he starred in the 1991 thriller "The Silence of the Lambs." The movie featured the Oscar-winning actor playing creepy convicted cannibal Dr. Hannibal Lecter and apparently Martha was struggling to separate him from the character.
"I have a big, scary house in Maine that's way by itself on 100 acres in the forest, and I could't even imagine taking Anthony Hopkins there," Martha said with a chuckle. "I couldn't - all I could think of was him eating, you know."
After learning of the confession, the host asked, "And you stopped because of that?" To that, the lifestyle guru replied, "Yeah."
Martha, however, didn't say exactly when she dated the "Thor". The "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party" host previously married Andrew Stewart from 1961 until 1990. As for Anthony, the 84-year-old wed his third wife, Stella Arroyave, in 2003.
Also during the episode, Martha shared that she doesn't have any tattoos. "I have no tattoos. I wouldn't think of having a tattoo," she said. That surprised Ellen, who shared, "I wouldn't either, but I just thought, you're tough."
"It's not about being tough," Martha explained. "It's about, you know, growing old with tattoos that get stretched out and ugly. Let other people get tattoos."
