ANTHONY HOPKINS’ COLD RESPONSE WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER
Saturday, May 26, 2018
No surprise here – Hannibal Lecter isn’t the world’s greatest dad!
Sir Anthony Hopkins admitted in an interview to Radio Times that he is estranged from his daughter Abigail who is 48. When asked if he was a granddad, Hopkins let it be known that it made no difference to him.
“I don’t have any idea. People break up. Families split and, you know: Get on with your life. People make choices. I don’t care one way or the other. You don’t have to like your family. Children don’t like their fathers. You don’t have to love each other.”
When he was warned of how cold he came across, he didn’t seem to mind.
“Well, it is cold. Because life is cold.”
It’s unclear what happened between Hopkins and his singer/songwriter daughter, but considering he walked out on her and her mother when she was just 14 months old, we’re sure the tension has been building.
Abigail appeared in two of his movies – Shadowlands and The Remains of the Day in 1993. However, Hopkins admitted the two were estranged in 2002, and Abigail admitted in 2006 that he had never attended any of her singing gigs.
