    Sir Anthony Hopkins Practically Calls Paris Hilton Stupid

    Anthony Hopkins may have been knighted, but apparently no one ever taught him that name-calling isn't nice.

    Not that we totally blame him.

    The Oscar winner doesn't exactly call Paris Hilton "stupid," but that's clearly what he was thinking.

    "You look at the red carpet, Paris Hilton, you know, these people and you think, 'Is there anything going on up there?' " he tells Starpulse.

    He doesn't think much more highly of models.

    "We're living in a pretty strange time," he surmises. "I went into a shop to buy my wife some clothes and I wanted them gift wrapped. And they had this big plasma screen on with these women on the catwalk. I thought, 'God almighty, what have we become?' These girls—anorexic, walking like machines, no soul."

    Then he gets all deep about it. We'd tell him to pick on someone his own age or size, but he beats us to it.

    "It's a mass enslavement and it's kind of fascism. And it's the androgyny of it; the androgyny of the human soul. I don't think people think anymore," he says. "But maybe I'm just old."
