Not all celebrities can boast about having a happy and loving family. Some have to go through many divorces, and others don’t really care much about their children.

Sir Anthony Hopkins has one daughter, Abigail Hopkins, from his first marriage. And as it turns out, the actor doesn't care how far his family tree goes.

In one of the newest interviews, the 80-year-old admitted he doesn’t know if he has any grandkids. While it may sound cold, it doesn’t seem to bother the actor:

People break up. Families split and, you know, ‘Get on with your life.’ People make choices. I don’t care one way or the other.

In another interview, 'The Silence of the Lambs' star clarified that his comments didn’t go from a cold place. According to him, Abigail was the one who pulled away. Apparently, his estranged daughter didn’t want to be part of his life, and Anthony got on with it:

I wasn’t cold. I’m not cold. Her choice is her choice.

But reportedly, Hopkins walked out of the relationship with Abigail when she was a toddler. The two reconciled in the 90s, when Anthony’s daughter even landed short cameos in two of his films. Since then, they’ve lost contact.


Of course, Anthony’s honest comments about the relationship with his daughter caused outrage on the Internet. People rushed to various social media platforms, shared that they had lost respect for Hopkins, and even compared the actor to the monstrous characters he often played in movies.

Everyone is quick to judge, but it’s only Anthony and Abigail who know the whole situation.
