Hannibal‘s cannibal has been known to have old friends for dinner, but star Anthony Hopkins admits there are some foods he can’t stomach. Among them: ”Fava beans.” Other cast members, tapped at the sequel’s Manhattan premiere, noted their culinary quirks. ”The ghastliest thing I’ve ever eaten,” says Frankie Faison, ”would be … innards, chitlins, which sort of resemble Hannibal’s menu.” Foster follower Julianne Moore says ”yogurt that’s gone bad” is most gross, while the thought of escargots makes Ray Liotta queasy. ”On Survivor, I’d fail that one,” he says. ”Those bugs, forget about it!” But ghoulish gourmand Gary Oldman rules nothing out — not even human flesh. ”I don’t know,” he muses. ”I hear it’s rather sweet.”
