[[UsefulNotes/KnightFever Sir]] '''Anthony Hopkins''' (born December 31, 1937) is a Welsh-born American actor (he became a naturalized US citizen in 2000) who is best known for playing [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]], for which he won an Oscar, but has had a long and illustrious career most often playing refined characters with a touch of mischief. Generally considered one of the world's best actors. Has played Theatre/TitusAndronicus, UsefulNotes/JohnQuincyAdams, Yitzhak Rabin, [[Literature/MutinyOnTheBounty William Bligh]], UsefulNotes/RichardNixon, Creator/PabloPicasso, [[Film/{{Thor}} Odin]], UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, Creator/CSLewis, Creator/AlfredHitchcock and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Burt]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burt_Munro Munro]]. Almost every film he's in is good, and in some cases, it's just because he's in it. He's also known for his deep, smooth voice.

Hopkins is sometimes considered a ClassicallyTrainedExtra, but he's really closer to an inversion. Once touted as the Next Big Shakespearean Actor, he ''deliberately'' chose to come to Hollywood to make loud, stupid movies because ''that's what he likes to do''. In his own words, "I have no interest in Shakespeare and all that British nonsense... I just wanted to get famous and all the rest is hogwash". He has also admitted that what drives his choice in roles is nothing but [[MoneyDearBoy cold, hard cash]].
Though one suspects that he also [[HamAndCheese genuinely enjoys the roles he plays, no matter how ridiculous they are]]. Pay him his money, and he will show up and '''''[[DoingItForTheArt act]]'''''. And your movie will be [[OneSceneWonder remembered forever for it]].
