Anthony Hopkins was caught chatting up a young woman on Hollywood Boulevard yesterday, October 6th; actress Winona Ryder.
The The Silence Of The Lambs actor turned out to pay tribute to his Bram Stoker’s Dracula co-star as she unveiled her star on the infamous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
And Hopkins, joyfully reunited with Ryder, paid tribute to the
Little WomenLITTLE WOMEN star's beauty in his speech before asking her on a date.
He says, "I haven't seen Winona for a few years, so when I was
asked last week if I would be here with her, I can't tell you what
an honor it was."
And he told the crowd, "she's so beautiful. Devastatingly beautiful. She took my breath away just now when I met her after such a long, long time. We're going to have lunch next week, or dinner?"
Hopkins later confided Ryder's winning combination of beauty and
shyness makes him putty in her hands. He says, "She's so beautiful,
so touching and shy and I'm a sucker for that."
Luckily Hopkins did get closer than most to Winona, she sprinted across the pavement to hug him when she first spotted him at the event.
Nonetheless, the actress refuses to believe she's a real movie star because she's just not glamorous enough.
Winona, says she was constantly in awe of screen stars while growing up.
She says, "my mum ran a movie house so I loved old movie stars.
I always pictured them spending their whole life looking like they
did in their movies, they didn't age, they were just legends.
"But I never considered myself as a movie star, I always thought
of myself as this little actress. So when I heard about the star,
I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a joke” – Lucy Edkins (Wenn, Los Angeles).
