Anthony Hopkins, 85, Grooves to the ‘Sunday Vibe’ While Cooking Italian Delights

On Sunday, Sir Anthony Hopkins, the renowned British actor with a career spanning seven decades, revealed his playful side by dancing 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, energetically danced to the classic tune while seemingly preparing an Italian dish.

Positioned between his oven and kitchen island, Hopkins enthusiastically grooved to the beat, occasionally closing his eyes to fully immerse himself in the music. The video captured him stepping left and right, mouthing lyrics, and embracing the joyful vibe of the moment.

As his dance concluded, he flashed a smile, walked towards the camera, and captioned the TikTok post with, “Hey goomba do you like how I dance the rumba…? Sunday vibe.”

The clip, showcasing the more lighthearted aspect of the seasoned actor, garnered positive responses from fans, who expressed admiration and joy. Some fans suggested the idea of him and Stanley Tucci discussing Italian food, making a nod to Tucci’s show “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy.” Others appreciated the unexpected sight of Sir Anthony Hopkins dancing, with playful references to his iconic role as Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

It’s worth noting that 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.
