Winning the 1992 Best Actor Oscar for his chilling performance as Dr Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs overwhelmingly confirmed Anthony Hopkins' star status. He has since been nominated a further three times and has become a huge force in Hollywood, with more recent films such as Hannibal, Red Dragon and the Human Stain, and Oliver Stone's Alexander.
This definitive biography includes how Hopkins, CBE and Knight of the British Empire, has now become a citizen of the United States and married his third wife, antiques specialist Stella Aroyave. Written largely with the co-operation of Anthony Hopkins, his family, friends, collegues and critics, this is a highly readable and informative portrait of a great actor.

"Gets us as close as we'll probably ever be to the secret of what makes Anthony Hopkins the man, and the actor, that he is" (Kathryn Hughes Daily Mail)
"Intelligent and hugely readable" ( Total Film)

Though Anthony Hopkins had enjoyed early success in The Lion in Winter, it was Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs - voted the greatest screen villain of all time and for which he won the Best Actor Oscar in 1991 - that he gained his greatest popular recognition. Equally compelling performances in The Remains of The Day, Shadowlands, Howards End, Nixon, The Mask of Zorro, Amistad, Titus, The Human Stain and Alexander established his magnetic presence and a dangerous vitality.
But Alcoholism came close to wrecking the Welsh-born actor's enviable career on stage and screen: only by a massive effort of will has Hopkins overcome his demons and reformed his life. Covering his latest work, his stormy private life, third marriage and his decision to take US citizenship, and including contributions from Hopkins himself and many of those who know and have worked with him, Anthony Hopkins is a frank and revealing account of one of the most influential and legendary actors of our time.
