Actor SIR Anthony Hopkins fears he will soon be unemployed - because computer wizardry means movies no longer require human stars.

The 68-year-old is amazed by the special effects employed on the set of his new movie BEOWULF, but insists the motion-capture technology could ruin Hollywood.

He says, "You really feel ridiculous. I don't know why they do it that way.

"I think eventually they won't use actors. They're sneaking up on us to get rid of us."
