During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Stewart participated in two segments titled “Two Truths and a Lie” and “Where’s The Lie, Martha?" during which she explained why she cut ties with the 84-year-old actor.

“I dated Sir Anthony Hopkins but broke up with him because I couldn’t stop thinking of him as Hannibal Lecter,” the clue read. However, DeGeneres said it was a lie.

Stewart proved her wrong by confirming that the fact was also a "truth."

“I have a big scary house in Maine that’s way by itself on a hundred acres in the forest,” Stewart revealed. “I couldn’t even imagine taking Anthony Hopkins there.”

She added, “All I could think of was him eating, you know….”

In the movie “The Silence of the Lambs,” Hopkins played Hannibal Lecter, a serial killer who devoured his victims, according to People.

Stewart is known for staying mum on the status of her love life. However, some say she may be a bit of a heartbreaker.

In August 2020, the star found herself with a slew of new admirers after posting a sultry pool selfie.

“I’ve had 14 proposals, I don’t know what for, but they’re proposals,” Stewart said during an appearance on E! ’s “Daily Pop.”

In the now-infamous pic, Stewart can be seen hanging out in her expansive swimming pool in East Hampton, New York. She struck a pose with her glowing skin and pouty lips on full display and gave fans a glimpse of her bare shoulders.
