Martha Stewart is dishing why her piping hot romance with Sir Anthony Hopkins went cold.

On Wednesday, the 80-year-old appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres” show and revealed that she broke up with the Oscar winner after he starred in the 1991 thriller “The Silence of the Lambs.”

The businesswoman and TV personality made the revelation during a rendition of “Two Truths and a Lie,” titled “Where’s The Lie, Martha?” It was during that game that Stewart insisted her relationship with the 84-year-old was the real deal.

“I have a big scary house in Maine that’s way by itself on 100 acres in the forest,” said Stewart. “I couldn’t even imagine taking Anthony Hopkins there.”

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

“And you stopped because of that?” DeGeneres, 63, asked. Stewart replied, “Yeah,” to laughs and applause from the audience.

The horror flick, which premiered on Valentine’s Day 1991, tells the tale of an FBI cadet who must resort to receiving help from an incarcerated cannibal to catch another serial killer. The film grossed more than $270 million worldwide and earned five Oscars, including a best actor win for Hopkins.
