Hopkins is best known for his roles of mastermind villain Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991), Hannibal (2001), and Red Dragon (2002). Hopkins started acting at the age of 15, encouraged by actor Richard Burton who then told him "You'll make a great actor, kid." Hopkins was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1993. Besides being an actor Hopkins is a brilliant pianist. In fact he took a break from acting in 2008 and went on a world piano tour where he played piano on stage, spoke about his life and acting, and cracked many anecdotes. For years Hopkins suffered from alcohol addiction which ruined his two marriages. "I was never a good husband or father, for which I am sorry" said Hopkins on his piano tour. Hopkins acted in over 90 movies, and at the age of 75 he does not plan to retire any time soon. He's currently involved in 6 movies which are in filming and pre-production stages.
