In case you needed to be reminded, Anthony Hopkins is amazing. Not only is he a deeply talented actor, but he's also an all-around gentleman and national treasure (even if he's, you know, not of our nation). And a few more reasons that support this claim have recently come forth.

To star in the upcoming Hitchcock, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel had to channel classic Hollywood glam – well, at least one of them.
In the film, which tells the story of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock's life and marriage at the time he was making his 1960 horror classic Psycho, Johansson, 27, and Biel, 30, play the parts of that film's leading ladies, Janet Leigh and Vera Miles, respectively.
"When we took that still of Scarlett behind the wheel and put it up against the still of Janet behind the wheel in Psycho, it was eerie," says Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. "The extent to which Scarlett was able to channel Janet [was] a real surprise. She brought it in such a way that no one really anticipated."

Sir Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for playing one of the biggest psychos of all time, Hannibal Lecter, in 1991's The Silence of the Lambs.
Now he's playing the man who directed the movie that had all of America screaming, Alfred Hitchcock, at the time the Hollywood legend was making his classic 1960 film Psycho.
Here, in this first look from the movie Hitchcock, which began shooting last Friday (Hitch would have loved the date, Friday the 13th), Hopkins, 74, is seen as the bald, portly and droll 60-year-old.

Movie history proved golden at this year's Oscars – what with the winning The Artist and Hugo, as well as the nominated My Week with Marilyn – so, what's next?
How about a look-back to Tinseltown's glorious and goriest past with Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Hopkins, who are set to costar in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, reports Variety.
Johansson will play leading lady Janet Leigh, who took the screen's most famous shower in the 1960 classic of its genre. James D'Arcy (Madonna's W.E.) will play Anthony Perkins, whose acting career never quite recovered after he was typecast as Norman Bates, a motel owner with something of a mother complex.
