Salma Hayek dances with Anthony Hopkins to celebrate his Academy Awards win

Salma Hayek has helped Anthony Hopkins celebrate his historic Best Actor Oscars victory by joining him for a sweet dance.


The 83-year-old became the oldest actor to strike gold at the Academy Awards on Sunday when he was feted for his role in The Father, but he actually slept through the Los Angeles ceremony at his home in Wales, and instead delivered his acceptance speech via social media the following day.

On Tuesday, Hopkins was reunited with Hayek, and together, they had a little fun together in his living room.

The Frida star shared the sweet footage on Instagram, with Hopkins featured dancing solo to Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me to the End of Love, before Hayek moves into the frame and shimmies next to her pal.

The clip ends with the pair hugging.

“Celebrating with the king @anthonyhopkins his 2nd Oscar for his extraordinary performance in The Father,” Hayek wrote in the accompanying caption.

“Thank you queen for the love and laughter. A memorable, beautiful day,” Hopkins responded in the comments section.

The video was also liked by stars including Zoe Saldana, Antonio Banderas, and Freida Pinto, who remarked, “Aww my Heart…absolutely well-deserved and what a beautiful human he gets to celebrate with.”

Hopkins previously took home an Oscar for Best Actor in 1992 for his killer role in The Silence of the Lambs.
