Anthony Hopkins on ‘American Idol’ – “I think it’s fantastic”
HollywoodNews.com: Even though it is a well-known fact that American Idol has an enormous audience, you still wouldn’t expect certain people to be a huge fan. One fan you might not expect? Oscar-winner, Sir Anthony Hopkins.
The Rite actor recently admitted on an episode of Kimmy Kimmel Live that he is a huge fan of the show. Kimmel showed a clip of the actor in the audience at an American Idol taping. The actor then admitted his love for the show and how it embodies much more for him than just a performance.
When asked why he likes the show so much, Hopkins had this to say, “I think it’s a great show because it’s like the American dream, isn’t it? These kids can get up there and do what they want and I think it’s fantastic,” according to Digital Spy. It seems as though Hopkins doesn’t turn his nose up at any kind of performance, a true man of the arts as we would say.
