Veteran star Anthony Hopkins has called himself a “loner” who doesn`t “have many friends” because he enjoys his solitude. `The Silence Of The Lambs` star said that he`s not “antisocial” as he does have a rich family life and keeps himself busy with his work and hobbies.
He told People: “I`m very much a loner. I have very few friends. I`m not antisocial. I`m friendly, but I don`t seek out (company) … I do enjoy solitude. I know that sounds morbid but I do enjoy it.”
Despite coming across quite serious, Hopkins has shown off his silly side on TikTok with his goofy dance videos, and he has insisted his wife Stella and 20-year-old niece Tara talked him into joining the platform, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He added: “I`m slightly reluctant. I say: `Oh no, not again.` But I do something silly because we need humour. We need a laugh in life. For good reason I guess, life is tough. The world is a savage place but life does have its beauty.”
Hopkins went on to address his own mortality – insisting he knows he`s only got a few more years of work left in him, but he`s actually in excellent shape. He explained, “I`m aware of my mortality. To be realistic, I know that if I have a few more years of work left in me, I can do it. I`ve just had a medical check-up, I`m in good shape.”
It comes after the veteran actor celebrates almost five decades since giving up booze as 2024 will mark his 49th year sober.
