Sir Anthony Hopkins sits down with HFPA journalist Jenny Cooney to discuss how and why he took a second swing at playing William Shakespeare’s King Lear. They also discuss how he met Richard Burton, lessons from Laurence Olivier, screen tests for Peter O’Toole for The Lion in Winter, advice Katharine Hepburn gave him, working with Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, and Richard Eyre, why the Silence of the Lambs script made him want to play Hannibal Lecter, his experience on Westworld, and more.
