“Be proud of your life”: sober for 47 years, Anthony Hopkins sends a message of support to people who are victims of addiction (video)
Actor who needs no introduction thanks to his roles in “The Silence of the Lambs”, “Hannibal” or even “Elephant Man”, Anthony Hopkins is also a man who does not hesitate to support others. To celebrate the new year 2023, the actor published a video in which he talks about his experience with alcohol and encourages people who are victims of addiction to fight against it.
“47 years ago I was in dire straits, probably didn’t have much time to live and one day I realized there was something wrong with me“. In a video posted on his Instagram account, the American actor gave himself up as rarely.
He recounts in particular his former addiction to alcohol, but also supports people in the grip of an addiction. “(…) don’t be put down by others (…) if you need help with an addiction or problem, talk to someone you respect, like a professional, or join a 12-step program“.
A very nice message and a gesture of great elegance from the actor, who recently celebrated his 85th birthday.
