Anthony Hopkins has had a vast career with roles ranging from his award-winning portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs to his recent stint as Pope Benedict in The Two Popes. However, he's best known to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for playing Thor's father, Odin. The 82-year-old actor has a nice presence on social media, and occasionally posts some fun Marvel throwbacks. Currently, Hopkins is one of the countless people self-quarantining in the hopes of avoiding COVID-19. The actor recently took to Twitter to share a video chronicling his tenth day in isolation.
“Hello, everyone. Thank you for your generous comments and well wishes. As you see, I am in self-quarantine," Hopkins explains in the video. "I’m 82 years of age and I found lots of things to do.” He goes on to share that he’s been painting and playing the piano for his cat, Niblo, who he jokes is “busy at the moment writing his memoir." You can check out the video in the post below:
