Anthony Hopkins says that both of his parents painted. According to an interview a few years ago in the Las Vegas Sun, his wife Stella encouraged him to return to art after she found a pile of old scripts with his drawings on them. He recently told the Guardian that his passion for acting has returned since he started composing and painting. "When it comes along, I enjoy it more because I'm laid back. My mind is clear, my body is clear. I'm fit and well, so I can apply all my strength and power to the movie."
