Prepare for what is absolutely the best thing you’ll see on the internet today. Sir Anthony Hopkins is on TikTok. We repeat, Sir Anthony Hopkins is on TikTok! Many of us find ourselves with extra time on our hands these days, so why not use it for new skills? While many already know the absolute delightful Academy-Award winner Sir Anthony Hopkins is on Twitter, this new video on TikTok will undoubtedly add some joy to all our lives as well.
Hopkins dove right in with his 44 second clip. He dances—quite well, might we add—to Drake’s Toosie Slide. While he’s aware that he’s late to the TikTok party, he knows it’s better late than never. After he does the slide, he calls out pals Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger (and mentions Lulu, Schwarzenegger’s donkey) to join him in the Toosie Slide challenge as well.
The 82 year old actor has been active on Twitter and Instagram for a while now, even going so far as hosting his own Instagram live this May 17th. He’ll be taking questions from fans while playing the piano. But we can’t forget about the other star in Sir Hopkins online presence: his adorable cat, Niblo. Niblo often appears in his videos, whether on his lap or in the background. He’s a calming presence in these uneasy times.
And recently, Niblo appeared in a TikTok video with Hopkins. This is one sweet, patient kitty.
Niblo says Happy Wednesday… NOT!!! ?
Hopkins released a video closer to the start of the stay-at-home orders where he told viewers ways he was passing the time in quarantine. He’s been playing the piano for Niblo and painting “just for the fun of it.” Whatever creative outlet Sir Anthony Hopkins wants to try next, he will probably excel at it. One thing’s for sure though: we want more TikTok videos! Don’t leave your fans hanging.
