[[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ahopkins-slambs.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:258:"[-I edited this article with some fava beans, and a nice Chianti-]."]] Sir Anthony Hopkins (born 1937) is a Welsh-born American actor (he became a naturalized US citizen in 2000) who is best known for playing [[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, JohnQuincyAdams, Yitzhak Rabin, [[MutinyOnTheBounty William Bligh]], RichardNixon, Pablo Picasso, Odin, AdolfHitler, and Creator/AlfredHitchcock. Almost every film he's in is good, and in some cases, it's [[SugarWIki/RuleOfSeanConnery just because he's in it]]. He is 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]]. Despite being known for playing one of Cinema's most famous monsters, Hopkins is known as [[MeanCharacterNiceActor a very sweet and friendly man]] who likes to be called Tony. After initially doodling on his scripts, the man has taken up painting and now has his own collection in galleries for sale, the proceeds of which go to charity. !!Films he has appeared in include: * ''{{Amistad}}'' * ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'' * ''[[MutinyOnTheBounty ''The Bounty'']]'' - as Lieutenant Bligh. * ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' - as Van Helsing. * ''Film/TheBunker'' as AdolfHitler * ''[[Creator/CharlieChaplin Chaplin]]'' * ''Film/TheEdge'' * ''TheElephantMan'' - as the doctor. * ''[[Film/{{Fracture2007}} Fracture]]'' (2007) * ''{{Freejack}}'' - the BigBad * ''HallmarkHallOfFame'' - 3 films, including ''The Tenth Man'' ('82) and ''Hunchback of Notre Dame'' ('88) * ''Literature/HeartsInAtlantis'' * ''Film/{{Hitchcock}}'' - Creator/AlfredHitchcock * ''HowardsEnd'' * ''TheHumanStain'' * ''LegendsOfTheFall'' * ''TheLionInWinter'' - His first major film role. * ''Film/MissionImpossibleII'' * ''TheMaskOfZorro'' - As Zorro himself. * ''MeetJoeBlack'' * ''Film/{{Nixon}}'' - RichardNixon * ''TheRemainsOfTheDay'' * ''TheRite'' * ''TheRoadToWellville'' * ''{{Shadowlands}}'' * ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' & sequels - In which he codified and popularized the HannibalLecture. * ''Film/{{Thor}}''- Odin * ''[[Theatre/TitusAndronicus Titus]]'' * ''VictoryAtEntebbe''[[hottip:*: A 1976 made-for-TV movie about Operation Entebbe.
