We are learning there is so much more to Sir Anthony Hopkins than just his incredible career as an actor, director, and producer. The man is truly a well-rounded artist, and the internet recently got its first glimpse into his likely lesser-known talents.
ARTnews revealed that “the award-winning actor best known for portraying Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs and more recently for his role in Westworld, became an internet sensation when he posted a TikTok of himself dancing to Drake’s hit song 'Toosie Slide.'

At first glance, the painting might look like a work by Francis Picabia from the artist’s famed 'Transparencies' series. In fact, the work is by Hopkins himself—though Picabia is among his influences.”
His artistic inspiration began in childhood where the seeds were planted, but never quite blossomed into what he had hoped for by his teenage years.
