Anthony Hopkins dances with Salma Hayek to celebrate his Oscar surprise

Anthony Hopkins may have missed his second Oscar in person, but he’s still celebrating his win in style! The 83-year-old actor had fun with his friend, Salma Hayek, on Tuesday at their home in Wales.

“Celebrating with the king @anthonyhopkins 👑 his second Oscar for his extraordinary performance in The father,” Hayek captioned in a sweet video.

In the clip, Hopkins is soloing Leonard Cohen’s “Dance Me to the End of Love” before 54-year-old Hayek enters the scene, dancing with him. They end with a sweet hug.

It’s unclear exactly how the A-listers are known, but Hayek also attended Hopkins’s 2003 Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.

Hopkins became the oldest living actor to take home the Best Actor award on Sunday for his role in The father.

He did not attend the show and instead was at his home in Wales.

The actor’s representative, Jeremy Barber, issued a statement to ET about breaking the news to Hopkins. “I am happy to confirm that Tony was sleeping in Wales and that I called him at 4am to wake him up and give him the news that he had won,” he shared. “I was so happy, surprised and full of gratitude.”

Hopkins first won the Best Actor Oscar in 1992 for his role as Hannibal Lecter in The silence of the lambs.
