Why Luke Hemsworth was too 'scared' to meet Westworld co-star Anthony Hopkins

Luke Hemsworth was too "scared" to have breakfast with Sir Anthony Hopkins.

The 35-year-old hunk - who is the older brother of actors Chris and Liam Hemsworth - thinks his legendary Westworld co-star is "lovely", but has been too nervous to spend time with him off set.

He said: "I get to do a few things with Anthony, and I wouldn't say I was hanging out with him, but yeah, he's a lovely, lovely gentlemen.

"He's quite happy to have a chat. I've met him before, so it definitely makes it a little bit easier and helped me calm down my nerves a little bit that's for sure. The first thing he says to me is, 'How's Chris?'

"He actually invited me to have breakfast with him and I just couldn't do it because ... I just ... it's too scary! It's exactly that reaction of like, 'I can't go and have breakfast - you're Tony Hopkins! What am I going to talk about?' "

However, Luke is confident he'll "work up to" their breakfast meeting eventually.

He added to Vulture: "It just hasn't come to fruition yet. I'm still working myself up to it."

Luke's admission comes shortly after fellow Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood admitted she burst into tears after filming her first scenes for the show with the Silence of the Lambs actor.

She said: "He really is the greatest actor I've ever worked with. I did a couple scenes and afterwards just had to go into a corner and weep.

"And someone found me and said, 'Oh my God, are you OK? Did the scene go badly?' I was crying. And I went 'No, it went really well. I'm just crying because I've hit a milestone as an actor. That's a little overwhelming and I'm taking a moment.' "
