Umamin na ang Oscar winning actor na si Sir Anthony Hopkins tungkol sa pakikipaglaban niya sa alcoholism. Nabanggit ng 80-year-old actor na naging mahirap sa kanya ang magtrabaho noong nagsisimula siya sa kanyang stage career dahil parati siyang may hangover.

In 1975, nakumbinsi siya ng isang babae na pumasok sa Alcoholics Anonymous na nakapagbago ng buhay niya.

Ngayon ay speaker si Hopkins sa higit na 500 students ng University Of California para i-discuss ang kanyang mga naging problema with alcoholism at paano nito naapektuhan ang career niya.

“Because that’s what you do in theatre, you drink. But I was very difficult to work with, as well, because I was usually hungover. I was disgusted, busted and not to be trusted while drinking,” sey ng aktor.

Kinuwento pa ng aktor na ang sinabi sa kanya ng babae na nagpasok sa kanya sa AA ang naging simula ng pagbabago sa buhay niya.

“She asked me, why don’t you just trust in God?” sey ni Hopkins na hindi na bumalik sa pag-inom ng alak.

Si Sir Anthony Hopkins ay isa sa world’s greatest living actors na nakilala sa pagganap niya bilang cannibalistic serial killer na si Hannibal Lecter in 1991’s ‘The Silence Of The Lambs’. Napanalunan niya ang Oscar best actor noong taong iyon.

Na-nominate din siya para sa mga pelikulang ‘Remains Of The Day’, ‘Amistad’ and ‘Nixon’.

Sir Anthony was knighted in 1993 for services to the arts.

“Because I he had better to do. I was not at all bright in school and was often bullied.

“I believe that we are capable of so much. From my own life, I still cannot believe that my life is what it is because I should have died in Wales, drunk or something like that.”

Sa Malibu, California nakatira ang aktor with his actress wife, Stella Arroyave.

Parating advice siya sa mga students: “Say yes to everything. Say yes and take the risk.” ()
