Happy Friday, there's some important Martha Stewart news incoming. In case you aren't aware, Martha used to date Anthony Hopkins back in the day, and she just casually informed everyone that she ended the relationship because he reminded her too much of Hannibal Lecter, the cannibal he plays in Silence of the Lambs.

During a game of Two Truths and a Lie with Ellen DeGeneres, Martha mused "I dated Sir Anthony Hopkins but broke up with him because I couldn't stop thinking of him as Hannibal Lecter." Ellen naturally assumed this was a lie, but nope.

"I have a big scary house in Maine that's way by itself on a hundred acres in the forest," Martha said. "I couldn't even imagine taking Anthony Hopkins there. All I could think of was him eating, you know."

According to People, Martha also revealed that she worried about her boyfriend eating her for dinner during a 2006 interview with Howard Stern saying "Oh, I loved him, but he was... scary. I was going to invite him up to Maine; I have this beautiful home in Maine... but then I reconsidered because I saw that movie again. Do you want someone eating your brain while you are sitting in your beautiful dining room in Maine? I would have probably had a very nice relationship with Anthony Hopkins, but I couldn't get past the Lecter thing."

I mean, Silence of the Lambs is a fictional movie, but fair.

Kay, that's all, I'll just go ahead and leave you with this:
