Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins CBE, better known as Anthony Hopkins, is a Welsh actor, director, producer, widely considered to be one of the world's greatest living actors.

  • His Oscar-winning performance as Hannibal Lecter in _The Silence of the Lambs (1991)_ (qv) was ranked #1 on the American Film Institute's Villains list in its compilation of the 100 Years of The Greatest Screen Heroes and Villains.
  • Has played two characters that lost a hand by having it severed: in _Titus (1999)_ (qv) and _Hannibal (2001)_ (qv).
  • 4/12/00: Became a U.S. citizen, but is allowed to retain his British knighthood and the title of Sir.
  • Was listed as a potential nominee on the 2005 Razzie Award nominating ballot. He was suggested in the Worst Supporting Actor category for his performance in the film _Alexander (2004)_ (qv), however, he failed to receive a nomination. Had he gotten the nomination, it would have been his first in 24 years. He was previously nominated for Worst Actor in the film _A Change of Seasons (1980)_ (qv) at the very first Razzie Awards.
  • Father of 'Abigail Hopkins' (qv)
  • Appears in _Nixon (1995)_ (qv) with 'Dan Hedaya' (qv), and _The Good Father (1985)_ (qv) with 'Jim Broadbent' (qv). Hedaya later played Nixon in _Dick (1999)_ (qv), and Broadbent played Nixon in _Dirty Tricks (2000) (TV)_ (qv).
  • Is proud of his improvisational touches as Hannibal Lecter in _The Silence of the Lambs (1991)_ (qv) such as: the unnerving effect on 'Jodie Foster' (qv) when he mocked her character's West Virginia accent; the distorion of the word "chianti" and the vile slurping sound he makes after he describes eating the "census-taker." Hopkins also notes that Hannibal never blinked his eyes when he spoke.
  • Was offered the part of Colonel Colin Caine in Lifeforce (1985).
