Martha Stewart and Anthony Hopkins would have made an adorable couple, but their relationship ended due to fictional problems.

Hopkins won an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1992 for his role as Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of The Lambs," but lost a girlfriend in the process.

As hilarious as it sounds, the world-renowned baker ended things because she did not want her brains eaten by the Lecter.

Martha Stewart Details Breakup With Anthony Hopkins Over Famous Thriller

On Wednesday, January 19, Stewart appeared on a fun-filled episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and gave a rather amusing insight into an old relationship.

During a segment titled "Where's The Lie, Martha?" A clue read that Stewart ended her romance with Hopkins because she could not stop seeing him as Hannibal Lecter.

DeGeneres considered it a lie, but the "Martha Bakes" star confirmed that this is true. She recounted:

"I have a big scary house in Maine that's way by itself on a hundred acres in the forest. I couldn't even imagine taking Anthony Hopkins there. All I could think of was him eating, you know..."

Stewart did not end her train of thoughts, but she undoubtedly referred to the fictional serial killer's favorite meal: his captured human victims.

The poor lady was scared she would be eaten alive in her home with nobody to hear her screams in the deep, dark woods! 

Although, we imagine the only thing Hopkins would have an appetite for would be her famous and delectable baked goods.

Stewart did not give the details of her relationship timeline with Hopkins, but, in 2006, she told Howard Stern that she "loved him, but he was... scary."

The "Pixels" actress talked about her property in Maine again, asking, "Do you want someone eating your brain while you are sitting in your beautiful dining room?" 

Nevertheless, Stewart believes she and Hopkins, who has been married to Stella Arroyave since 2003, would have had a satisfying relationship if not for his stellar role as a serial killer.

Things may not have worked out between Stewart and Hopkins, but she has a new man in her life. Although she keeps him a secret, he is, thankfully, not a Hannibal Lecter.

The Blast shared that while on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live," the blonde beauty was asked if she was in a relationship with anyone.

Stewart said no but later admitted, “I shouldn’t say no. I mean yes, but I’m not going to tell you.”

The Enviable Friendship of "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party" Hosts

Stewart and Snoop Dogg are proof that opposites attract. The two have one of the best Hollywood friendships despite being polar opposites.

The Blast dived into their famous platonic bond. The "Bad Moms" actress was born in New Jersey, attended Barnard College, and became the queen of baking and home appliances. 

Snoop, on the other hand, began rapping in high school, which culminated in him being a famous musical personality and actor.

In 2008, the pair were introduced on “The Martha Stewart Show,” where the "High" rapper showed her the recipe for his homemade mashed potatoes using his local terminologies.

Their on-screen chemistry became a fan favorite, and Snoop returned to show her how to make brownies. The fun-filled episode showed the rapper using allusions to marijuana when it was illegal. 

VH1 then gave these besties their show in 2016 titled “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” which has been going strong for its ten-episode seasons.

Anthony Hopkins Celebrates 45 Years Of Sobriety 

Hopkins has a lot to celebrate with his arsenal of awards, including two Oscars, four BAFTA awards, two primetime Emmy Awards, and more.

Despite these incredible accolades, The Blast disclosed in 2020 that he achieved yet another stunning accomplishment: over four decades of sobriety.

"The Father" actor took to his Instagram page to reflect on battling alcohol addiction and how his decision to stay sober has benefited his life.

In the uploaded video, Hopkins expressed that he was heading for disaster, drinking himself to death, but a little thought popped into his head asking: “Do you want to live or die?”

The "Westworld" actor noted, “Today is the tomorrow you were so worried about yesterday. You young people, don’t give up."
