Anthony Hopkins Is a TikTok Icon
His first upload is already a huge hit
Published May 10, 2020As we creep up on the second full month of coronavirus quarantine, people are looking for new ways to stay entertained. And if you're like Sir Anthony Hopkins, maybe you've even gone as far as to download viral hit-making social platform TikTok to pass the time.
Hopkins began his TikTok journey earlier this week, uploading his first video just a few days ago, a clip that sees the actor shuffling around to Drake's "Toosie Slide" and doing impersonations of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger's classic characters from Rocky and Terminator.
"Hey, Mr. Stallone, keep writing! Good part for me in it? Gimme a part, major — huh?" Hopkins says in the clip. Continuing to jump around the room, he adds, "I couldn't even skip when I was a kid."
At the time of reporting, the 82-year-old actor already has over 143,000 hearts on his first upload, as well as over 100,000 followers.
One user commented on the video, "I didn't think I was going to care about TikTok, but now it's my reason for living," while another added, "The best actor alive is on TikTok."
Like them, we're also happy to see more amazing new content from the actor. If we're lucky, maybe we'll get to see more content featuring Hopkins's adorable cat, Niblo — who is apparently less than enthusiastic about the actor's creative outlets.
Hopkins is far from the first senior citizen to stake a claim on some TikTok fame. When it comes to the mostly Gen Z populated app, age is truly only a number.
