82-year-old Anthony Hopkins recently connected with his fans amid the coronavirus pandemic. He acknowledged their good tidings and shared details of how he has been self-isolating willingly.


Irrespective of the homebound rule set by the government, Hollywood stars are using avenues such as the Internet, to reach out to their fans.

These superstars have been active on social media where they keep their followers abreast of their well-being while urging them to religiously follow the recommendations from health agencies, which includes self-quarantine, proper hygiene, among other things.

Anthony isn't one to keep mute, even as an octogenarian, he has come out to show his fans his bubbly self as he isolates in his residence.

Apart from being a renowned actor, the star is also an impressive painter who has taken out time to better his craft during the ten days he has spent in isolation. With hands in his pocket, he cheerfully said in the clip:

"Hello everyone, well thank you for your generous compliments and well wishes...I'm in self-quarantine, I'm 82-years of age."


He continued to smile while bringing his cat, Niblo, into the picture. The actor explained that his paintings are probably nothing compared to his cat's who he jokingly referred to as a "better painter than me."

Having numerous awards to his name can only mean that the "Two Popes" star dedicatedly delivers his lines in each of his features. However, it should also be noted that another thing he has passion for is spending time with his pet. 

He is also a thoughtful individual, and a role model, who sought to make the world a better place by voluntarily self quarantining.


Niblo is the 82-year-old's closest pal, and Anthony never tries to shy away from the fact that he loves his animal dearly. 

At the beginning of the voluntary self-quarantine, he flaunted an alone time with Niblo. As the Oscar winner played some melodious tunes on a keyboard, the cat looked interested in the content. He captioned the post:

"Niblo is making sure I stay healthy and demands I entertain him in exchange...cats."


With hundreds of award-winning productions to his name, It will be correct to say that he has lived his life as a well-accomplished man.

For Anthony, however, his experiences and age have only bestowed more knowledge and understanding of life, which is seemingly "awe-inspiring" to figure out.


During an interview with Brad Pitt, he opened up on his beliefs on faith, time, and life generally. The "Hamlet" star stated that he believed things are predestined, meaning he's an advocate of fate.

Not only that, but he is also a thoughtful individual, and a role model, who sought to make the world a better place by voluntarily self quarantining even though he's not tested positive to the virus.
