Legendary actor Anthony Hopkins has been sober for 45 years and celebrated the milestone with a video message posted Tuesday on Twitter.
The Oscar-winning “Silence of the Lambs” star, who was an alcoholic early in his career, shared the uplifting message as many struggle with isolation and addiction during the holidays, which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s been a tough year, full of grief and sadness for many, many, many people,” he said. “But 45 years ago today I had a wake-up call. I was heading for disaster. I was drinking myself to death.
