The great Anthony Hopkins is celebrating his 83rd birthday. And we have a double opportunity to wish him Many Many Happy Returns of the Day, as well as Happy New Year in advances. The late British filmmaker Richard Attenborough had once called the Welsh actor the 'the greatest actor of his generation'.
