👆🏽That Christmas of 1975, Jenni his second wife walked out on Hopkins.
Hopkins then spent several days binge drinking, which ended with him waking up in a hotel room, calling Jenni, 'crying like a baby', saying he didn't know how he had come to be there.
Jenni told him he had to stop drinking and get help.
A few days later, Hopkins blacked out at a party, after hitting the bottle hard. A Hollywood movie agent expressed his concern about the actor’s talent going to waste and handed him a card for AA – Alcoholics Anonymous.
Anthony Hopkins made the call to AA, after his last drink on the 29th morning of December 1975. He has been a lifetime member since that day when he declared war on his demons.
What made Hopkins suddenly wake-up?
He says - fear.
Fear of losing his wife, his career, and himself.
Anthony Hopkins has been sober now for 41+ years!! 👏🏽
