Actor Anthony Hopkins said he avoids talking publicly about politics because he believes “actors are pretty stupid.”

The Oscar-winning star of The Silence of the Lambs and the upcoming Netflix movie The Two Popes spoke in a conversation with fellow actor Brad Pitt for the latest issue of Interview magazine.

“People ask me questions about present situations in life, ” Hopkins said.

“I say, ‘I don’t know, I’m just an actor. I don’t have any opinions. Actors are pretty stupid. My opinion is not worth anything. There’s no controversy for me, so don’t engage me in it, because I’m not going to participate.’”

Unlike many of his Hollywood peers, Hopkins has studiously avoided talking publicly about politics and offering his opinion about President Donald Trump. The Welsh star is a long-time California resident who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2000.

In the Interview conversation, Hopkins spoke about the preparation he did for playing President Richard Nixon in the 1995 biopic directed by Oliver Stone.

“Oliver Stone gave me the part of Nixon, and I remember thinking, ‘Why would he give me that part?’ And he said, ‘Because I’ve read interviews about you being a loner. That was Nixon,’” the actor recalled.
