Anthony Hopkins has appeared in so many movies that it's hard to pick a favorite. For me, although I did enjoy his Hannibal Lecter role in Silence Of The Lambs etc, my favorite movies of his would be a toss up between The Edge and Amistad. In both of these movies Anthony Hopkins not only does some great acting, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching them and could watch them time and time again.

So what is your favorite Anthony Hopkins movie and why?

      I love Anthony Hopkins! The highlight of visiting Madame Tussaud's was seeing Anthony Hopkins. Of course, I had my picture made with his figure, sent it to my daughter and she freaked out that she missed seeing him :) I didn't tell her for days that it was just the wax figure.

      He's such a good actor that I'm scared of him. If I saw him walking down the street I'd cross to the other side.
