According to reports, the tune Hopkins belted is a Welsh classic famously sang in schools back in the days. It is titled "Mae gen i dipyn o dy bach twt" and translates to "I've got quite a little house."

The lovely video comes shortly after the award-winning actor enjoyed a memorable dance with Salma Hayek shorty after his record-breaking Oscar win for Best Actor for his stellar performance in "The Father."

In the heartwarming clip shared on Hayek's page, the 83-year-old was seen dancing in his living room to "Dance Me to the End of Love" by Leonard Cohen. The "Frida" star soon joined him, and they ended their rendition with a hug.

The lovely video was celebrated by fans who applauded their close friendship. Although it's not sure how the pair became close friends, Hayek was at Hopkins' Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in 2003.

The award season has undoubtedly been a great one for Hopkins. Weeks before the Academy Awards, the actor became a four-time BAFTA award winner beating out the late Chadwick Boseman.

Although he was one of the night's biggest winners, Hopkins

was absent

 from the virtual ceremony. In a post-ceremony press conference, he shared that he spent the night painting in his hotel.
