Anthony Hopkins celebrates 47 years of sobriety: 'I have found a life where no one bullies me'
Quote
Anthony Hopkins celebrated a big milestone on Thursday as marked 47 years of sobriety. The Oscar-winning actor reflected on his battle with alcoholism in an inspiring video message and urged people to seek help if they are struggling. Hopkins, who turns 85 on Saturday, said getting sober saved his life.

"I'm celebrating 47 years today of sobriety," the acclaimed actor began. "This is a message not meant to be heavy, but I hope helpful. I am a recovering alcoholic. And to you out there I know there are people struggling. In this day and age of cancel and hatred and non-compromise, children being bullied, I say... Be kind to yourself. Be kind. Stay out of the circle of toxicity with people, if they offend you. Live your life. Be proud of your life..."

Do not the adulterated bully children more than any other in this world?

But Sir Anthony, why compromise with bullies and why not cancel bullies once and forever so no other innocents need be turned into alcoholics because of bullies and their existence? What's if being a bully was in people's blood, expressed in varying degrees dependent on circumstance and environment?

Does 'turning the other cheek' really work to stop bullies in the long run?

Hopkins; The Man Who Still Isn't Hannibal Lecter

Not that he is complaining. ''Hannibal,'' the sequel to ''The Silence of the Lambs,'' appeared well on its way to hitting $100 million at the box office this weekend, and the Lecter character, with its cannibalistic menace, has clearly struck a powerful minor-key chord with the public. But Sir Anthony is, admittedly, undeniably, understandably, burnt out on talking about the movie, defending the movie, on answering for Hannibal Lecter altogether.

If you're going to eat someone, is it not better to eat the guilty than the innocent? Who are the truly guilty in this world?

When will Hopkins finally redeem himself before the true and living and become Lecter in the flesh?  :)

Lastly, I trust Hopkins understanding of what a bully is more than most other human-beings, although not at all near perfect understanding! Reminder:

''I'm almost a vegetarian. I don't like meat. I like a bit of fish. Fish and pasta.''



Hopkins would be better off going full vegan in regards to non-humans and eating human-beings whenever he gets the craving for fish, especially in the mind of the almighty! ;)

(I probably wouldn't need to drink as of late if I didn't see human-being flaws as easily as I do, especially the real bullying!).
