“#Hello everyone, good morning. #Well, new year’s coming, it’s been a tough year,” he began in the black-and-white clip. “A lot of grief and sadness for many, many, many people. #But, 45 years ago today, I had a wake-up call.”

THESE SEVEN WORDS CHANGED ANTHONY HOPKINS’ LIFE – THEY CAN CHANGE YOURS, TOO

“The #Two #Popes” star said he was “heading for disaster drinking myself to death” at the time and said “a little thought” came to his mind: “#Do you want to live or die?”

“I said, ‘I want to live,'” #Hopkins remembered. “#Suddenly the relief came and my life has been amazing. I have my off days, sometimes little bits of doubt and all that, but, all in all, I say hang in there.”

“I look at it, and I think, ‘#What a great blessing that was, because it was painful.’ I did some bad things. #But it was all for a reason, in a way,” he said. “#And it’s strange to look back and think, ‘#God, I did all those things?’ #But it’s like there’s an inner voice that says, “#It’s over. #Done. #Move on.”
