On Sunday, Sir Anthony Hopkins, a renowned British actor with a career spanning seven decades, showcased his lighthearted side as he danced to Mambo Italiano in his kitchen.
In a video shared on TikTok and Instagram, the 85-year-old actor, dressed casually in black sweatpants and a matching top, animatedly danced to the classic tune while cooking what appeared to be an Italian dish.
Positioned between his oven and kitchen island, Hopkins grooved to the beat, occasionally closing his eyes to fully immerse himself in the music. The video showed him stepping left and right, mouthing lyrics, and enjoying the vibe of the moment.
Towards the end of his dance, he beamed a smile, walked towards the camera, and captioned the post on TikTok, “Hey goomba do you like how I dance the rumba…? Sunday vibe.”
The clip, showcasing the lighter side of the seasoned actor, received positive responses from fans, with comments expressing admiration and joy.
Some suggested the idea of him and Stanley Tucci discussing Italian food, referencing Tucci’s show “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy.” Others appreciated the unexpected sight of Sir Anthony Hopkins dancing, with references to his iconic role as Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Sir Anthony Hopkins portrayed Dr. Hannibal Lecter in films like “The Silence Of The Lambs” (1991), “Hannibal” (2001), and “Red Dragon” (2002). The featured song, “Mambo Italiano,” was originally written by Bob Merrill in 1954 for Rosemary Clooney.
