Anthony Hopkins 1

It was a challenge, to work with Oliver Stone.
Anthony Hopkins

I’ve got no need to prove to myself that I can do Shakespeare. I’ve done it.
Anthony Hopkins

I have no interest in Shakespeare and all that British nonsense… I just wanted to get famous and all the rest is hogwash.
Anthony Hopkins

Actors I admire? Ed Harris, or course, I think he’s terrific; because I know he always had to fight being what he looked like a lot, but I think he’s a terrific actor.
Anthony Hopkins

And I love a scary movie. It makes your toes curl and it’s not you going through it.
Anthony Hopkins

Every time I try to retire, or even think of retiring from acting, my agent comes up with a script.
Anthony Hopkins

I came here in 1974 to do a play, and then I went to L.A. I really like living in America. I feel more at home here than anywhere else.
Anthony Hopkins

I don’t have people following me around, like bodyguards. I don’t know how people live like that. Maybe the young movie stars have to live like that, I don’t know. But it seems a little crazy to me. I don’t think you need all that stuff.
Anthony Hopkins

I don’t know what acting is, but I enjoy it.
Anthony Hopkins

I have dual citizenship, it just so happens I live in America.
Anthony Hopkins

I like the good life too much, I’m not good at going on stage night after night and on wet Wednesday afternoons.
Anthony Hopkins

I love roller coasters. I don’t get a chance often, but I’ve gone to Magic Mountain and gone on the rides. I love roller coasters.
Anthony Hopkins

I never make conscious decisions.
Anthony Hopkins

I think all those actors from that generation, like Bogart – they were wonderful actors. They didn’t act. They just came on and they did it, and the characters were wonderful.
Anthony Hopkins

I worked with Lawrence Olivier some years ago. He was a great mentor.
Anthony Hopkins

I worked with Steven Spielberg on Amistad… he seemed so very secure in himself that he let me do things.
Anthony Hopkins

I’m always cast in these strange men… that’s not me, really.
Anthony Hopkins

I’m the slowest driver in the world.
Anthony Hopkins

I’ve got a great sense of humor.
Anthony Hopkins

My father was grounded, a very meat-and-potatoes man. He was a baker.
Anthony Hopkins

Oh yes. I’m an actor, so I just learn my lines, and show up and do it. I gave it a little bit of thought.
Anthony Hopkins

Richard Burton came from the same town as me, so I thought I’d follow my nose, and follow my luck. I think I’ve been very lucky.
Anthony Hopkins

Well, everyone likes movies when they’re a little kid.
Anthony Hopkins

I love life because what more is there?
Anthony Hopkins

This industry has been really good to me. It’s been a great life. I’m not through yet. I’m ready when you are, Mr. DeMille.
Anthony Hopkins

The art of acting is not to act. Once you show them more, what you show them, in fact is bad acting.
