Anthony Hopkins is gorgeous - I literally bumped into him outside the Shaftbury Theatre in London when he was in Madame Butterfly - I was 19 - I just stood there blinking and said 'Your Anthony Hopkins!' and he put his hand on my shoulder to steady me and laughed and said 'Yes, I am!' very down to earth and witty and no at all starry! Lovely man!
He went into the foyer and picked up a drink and me and my mate pressed our nose against the glass - he was chatting to two men and we banged on the glass and gave him a thumbs up and he gave us one back!
That is amazing! He really does come across as such a polite, charming, genuine man in interviews, so I'm glad that your experience with him validates that.
You are soooo lucky...I'm envious!
