You might not think of the set of the creepy thriller "Silence of the Lambs," as being a particularly fun place to work but some behind-the-scenes photos from the movie that have just surfaced suggest otherwise.

The black-and-white images, by an unnamed photographer, show actor Anthony Hopkins in his Hannibal Lecter costume laughing it up with director Ted Demme on the set, along with the normally stoic Jodi Foster looking relaxed and cracking a smile at one point.

And if you remember the dog "Precious," who plays a pivotal roll in the 1991 film, he's shown here as a stuffed toy.

There are also some arresting images of actor Ted Levine, who plays the killer Buffalo Bill in the film, staying in character.

Check them out below.

If you like these shots, you might also like these lost images of the Rolling Stones in 1965 that were recently discovered at a flea market.
