Hopkins scraps his memoirs

Jan 31, 2011 | 9:00am EST

The Oscar-winning actor, 73, agreed a deal for his memoirs and was even sent an advance fee from the publishers.

He began work the book but soon became convinced it was "c**p" - so he scrapped the project and sent the money back to the unnamed publishing house.

The Silence of the Lambs star tells Britain's Seven magazine, "Well, I started it but I sent the cheque back. Some publishing house. I told my agent I can't be doing with all this stuff. Who's interested in someone else's life?... I'm not interested in my own life.

"Well, you get self-conscious about it, don't you. I started writing and I thought: 'Who the hell wants to read this c**p?'"
