Theo James: Working With Anthony Hopkins Was An 'Eye Opener'

Theo James runs around Los Angeles for some errands on Friday afternoon (May 9).

The 29-year-old Divergent star recently chatted with Metro about working with Sir Anthony Hopkins earlier in his career.

“I asked Anthony Hopkins what he was doing the following week. He said: ‘I’m popping over to Italy where a concerto I’ve written is being performed. After that, I’m off to New York because one of my paintings is on display so I’m quite busy.’ I thought: ‘F***ing hell, I need to start working on other stuff.’ It was an eye opener.”

Theo added, “It was a small role but he was the first big actor I interacted with and he had an easy charm and a lack of familiarity. He’s quite warm and friendly, and he’s just himself – which is a good way to be around people.”

    He’s so hot.

  • alice

    he is so cute :) he needs to take more roles in different kinds of movies… he deserves to be the next big thing in hollywood

  • NativeNYker
  • Lauren

    I kindof hate that there are pap photos of him like this. It seems obvious that he called them and I like to think he’s not that kind of actor! Oh well. I suppose he can’t be perfect.

  • Emma

    I totally agree @Lauren!! He was all smart and stuff in interviews and like above calling pap guys but then he’s just randomly found in Holywood! He definitely called paps. And I really liked him as Four but i realized that in other peoples interviews like with Jai Courtney he wasn’t very well liked on the set. And Shailene never seems to like him in interviews, yet she’s all over Miles Teller and Ansel Algort in press things. I think he must be full of himself or something. And he’s not that hot with his receding hairline LOL.

  • Emma

    You can tell that I’m a mega Divergent fan since I watch all there interviews!!!! LOL

  • talia

    @Lauren: i don’t know what pics you are looking at because IMO he looks annoyed when he sees the papz.

  • Gucci

    I like him a lot, he seems quite smart and funny. I hope he gets more roles, not just Four on divergent. And let’s get real, at the beginning of their careers stars need the paparazzi attention every once in a while…maybe his management called them.

  • Jemma

    I agree that he or his manager called the paparazzi. And have you guys seen his Facebook page? It is SUCH A TURNOFF. I was crushing on him after seeing him in Divergent and ended up looking at his “#1 Fan site” on Facebook. It is SO obnoxious. Even if it’s his management that run it, he surely has a say in what they post. There’s the most obnoxious stuff posted on there. Like links to articles that say he’s together with Shailene (when obviously they are not – he has a girlfriend from the UK) and a bunch of other stuff. And he (or his management) constantly refer to himself as sexy – and not in a joking manner. Ugh. Totally ruined it for me. He’s cute, but you don’t see any other respectable actor with FB pages like that. You’d expect it from maybe Kellen Lutz or something, but not a guy who’s actually wanting to be taken seriously.

  • Attracive

    Hot, but why the heck did he anglicise his name?! He’s of Greek descent and has a Greek name. Reality of working in a superficial industry I guess.

  • Attracive

    @9 I don’t think he has an official facebook. Probably a fan account you saw.

  • Mel


    Theo doesn’t have any sort of public Facebook or Twitter so whatever you’re seeing is from fans. Seriously doubt he called these paps to watch him make what looks like a cigarette run. He looks like he’s wondering why they bother. He’s been very private about his personal life.

  • Mel

    Theo is 1/4 Greek, 1/4 English and 1/2 Scottish. He didn’t do anything to his face.

  • Mel

    @Attracive: @Attracive: oh and he claims he uses his middle name because it’s easier to spell and gives his family a bit of anonymity. A lot of people use stage names and as I stated he’s more Brit than Greek anyway.

  • seriously!

    I’m always baffled by some comments that the actors called papparazzis to be on some silly gossip rag or blogs . They really don’t unless you are some low life celebrity , which apparently this guy is not . If you told me the Kardashians did i would believe it , that’s what they live for . Nothing against Hillary Duff she’s fine but no one ever questioned why she’s always on some blogs , She is on every friggin entertainment blogs and she has zero to promote , but i don’t read anything nasty about her . Also if you gonna say something negative why bother clicking on it !!!

  • Dette

    @Emma: Actually, Theo and Shai really do well during interviews together. They kind of support each other when answering questions. And their chemistry is really great.

    And I agree that Theo is not that kind of person who’d call a pap to actually take photos of him. He’s not full of himself nor is he constantly clamoring for attention. Again, refer to his interviews during the Divergent tour with Shailene.

    Adorei Divergente,theo está sex e ele é realmente lindo,talentoso,e haverá mais papéis pra que ele possa mostrar mais seu talento. E quanto a sua origem genética é fácil perceber a causa de tanta beleza, ele é um “deus” grego!!!

  • Ro
