'Born free, Be free!' Anthony Hopkins puts on his Santa hat and grooves to Leonard Cohen on Christmas
MALIBU, CALIFORNIA: Anthony Hopkins shared a charming video on Instagram showing him in the Christmas spirit on December 25. The famous 84-year-old actor put on a glittery Santa hat and entertained his loved ones by dancing around the house.
The 'Silence Of The Lambs' actor twirled around the dance floor to Leonard Cohen's 'Dance Me To The End Of Love,' showing off his signature mischievous grin. Hopkins captioned the video, "Born free, Be free. Happy holidays," perhaps alluding to the popular 1960s British film 'Born Free," about a well-meaning couple raising a lioness. Hugh Jackman, his co-star in the new film 'The Son," commented on the post with "Happy Christmas Tony x"

Hopkins clearly showed how much he enjoys the conveniences of home when he won an Oscar for 'The Father' last year and chose not to even Zoom into the event to accept it. When Anthony's Oscar win was revealed, a source later said that he was "sound asleep" at home in Wales, as per Daily Mail.
Given that Chadwick Boseman had recently died, some people at the time considered his victory to be unexpected. Anthony announced his astonishment and thankfulness for receiving the Academy Award in a video the next day from Wales.
On December 21, Hopkins, 84, impersonated the character of the Thing from the Addams Family by marking up his right hand to resemble the scars of the character in honor of the well-liked Netflix series 'Wednesday.' In a video posted to Instagram in black and white, Hopkins portrays Thing as his hand moves across a surface as the iconic Addams Family theme music plays before coming into contact with a piano and starting to tickle the keys.
The 'Silence of the Lambs' actor captioned the picture, "Happy Wednesday," and he tagged the Netflix series' official Instagram account. Jenna Ortega plays Wednesday Addams in the Netflix series. "THING happens when an actor has free time on his hands," Hopkins added in the caption. Catherine Zeta-Jones, who costarred with Hopkins in 1998's 'The Mask of Zorro' and plays Morticia Addams in 'Wednesday', expressed her love in response to Hopkins' portrayal of the phantom hand. "Haha. I love you so Tony," Zeta-Jones, 53, wrote in the comments of the actor's post.
