The news of beloved actor Anthony Hopkins comes as a shock.

Hopkins’ fans have some bad news. The Welsh actor, best known for his role in The Silence of the Lambs, is rumored to be retiring from acting at 85, with immediate effect.

Acting is no longer a pleasurable experience.

According to an unnamed source, he may have said, “As we get older, there are periods of life that we enter, and being an actor just isn’t fun anymore.”

Other sources, who did not provide details, suggested that he would venture into other creative sectors in which he excels and is more interested.
