Anthony Hopkins is r, famed for his chilling portrayal of Hannibal Lecter, has garnered a flood of support on social media after sharing an ‘inspirational’ New Year’s message.

Hopkins, known for his role in “The Silence of the Lambs,” decided to ditch alcohol back in December 1975, and this year marked his 48th year of sobriety.

It was a wake-up call, a stark realization that he was steering towards self-destruction. “I was heading for disaster, drinking myself to death,” he admitted. The turning point came with a simple question: ‘Do you want to live or die?’ His answer was crystal clear—he chose life.

To celebrate the 48th anniversary of that life-changing decision and to offer hope to those grappling with similar addiction battles, Hopkins shared a video on his Instagram page on December 29th.

In the video, he extends New Year’s wishes to revelers while sharing his own story: “If you get a hangover, remember me. I don’t get them anymore because 48 years ago today, I stopped, I got help for it and my life changed.” He offers support and encouragement, emphasizing that every day is a step toward a better life.

Fans rallied around Hopkins, showering him with love and support for his journey and his inspiring words. Messages poured in, applauding his courage and resilience, thanking him for being a beacon of hope.
