ANTHONY HOPKINS WRITES A LETTER TO PAMELA ANDERSON!

MALIBU – It is now becoming apparent that Sir Anthony Hopkins‘ wonderful fan letter to Bryan Cranston and the Breaking Bad cast was simply the latest in a long series of fan mail which the Hopster has sent down the years.

We have already published those to Lee Majors and Mr. T. Now comes a letter written to the busty Baywatch star  Pamela Anderson in 1998.  

Dear Miss Anderson.
I wanted to write you this letter – so I am contacting you through Yasmin Bleeth – isn’t she a great gal?
I’ve just finished  watching “BAYWATCH” – from episode one of the First Season – to the last  episodes of the Sixth Season [There were actually only 5 seasons – the EXEC]. I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as C.J. Parker was the best acting I have seen – ever.
I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bullshit in this business, and I’ve sort of lost belief in anything really. But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers, the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (a word I will only use this once) awesome.
From what started as a light comedy about a lifeguard, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction, country music and big hair. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.
If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – except David Hasselhoff – I’m writing him a separate letter – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is endless.
Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.
You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.
That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It’s almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.
Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.
Best regards
Tony Hopkins.

ANTHONY HOPKINS’ LETTER TO MR. T

MALIBU – After breaking the news of Sir Anthony Hopkins‘ wonderful fan letter to Bryan Cranston and the Breaking Bad cast, the Studio Exec has since obtained several other letters.

We have already published one (to read the Lee Majors letter click HERE), but now we are also making public a copy of a letter that Hopkins wrote to Mr. T in 1987. 


Dear Mister T.
I wanted to write you this letter – so I am contacting you through George Peppard  – isn’t he a great guy?
I’ve just finished  watching “THE A TEAM”. I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as the Bad Attitude Baracas was the best acting I have seen – ever.

How the producers, the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (I word I will only use this once) awesome.
From what started as a light comedy about a team of Vietnam mercenary vets, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction, country music and big hair. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearean or Greek Tragedy.
If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – George Peppard, Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is… well, that’s the list.
Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.
You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.

ANTHONY HOPKINS’ LETTER TO LEE MAJORS

MALIBU – The whole of the internet wore a big sappy grin as it read Sir Anthony Hopkins‘ wonderful fan letter to Bryan Cranston and the Breaking Bad cast.

However, the Studio Exec has obtained a copy of a letter that Sir Anthony Hopkins wrote to Lee Majors in 1986. 

Dear Mister Majors.
I wanted to write you this letter – so I am contacting you through Glen L. Larson – isn’t he a great guy?
I’ve just finished  watching “THE FALL GUY” – from episode one of the First Season – to the last eight episodes of the Sixth Season [There were actually only 5 seasons – the EXEC]. I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as the Unknown Stuntman, Colt Seavers was the best acting I have seen – ever.
I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bullshit in this business, and I’ve sort of lost belief in anything really. But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making?

From what started as a light comedy about a stuntman, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction, country music and big hair. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.
If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – Douglas Barr, Heather Thomas, Jo-Ann Pflug, Nedra Volz, – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is endless.
Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.
You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.

BRYAN CRANSTON REPLIES TO SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS

HOLLYWOOD – Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad fame wrote s a wonderful reply to Anthony Hopkins’ fan letter. 

We print it EXCLUSIVELY:
Dear Tony,
 
Thanks for your kind e-mail. I was in the middle of cooking a fresh batch of Meth when I got it and I was so shocked I knocked over the propane tank and nearly blew the damn lab up!
You seem like a modest, self-deprecating man which is rare and refreshing in this industry. I received a drunken e-mail from Bruce Willis yesterday full of bile and expletives in which he claimed that he should have played Walter White and when they invent a time machine he’s going back to 2007, kick me in the ass and take the role he claims was rightfully his. I got a similar note from Patrick Stewart last week. I used to refer to him as Sir Patrick Stewart but no knight of the realm should have such a wide range of coarse profanity in his vocabulary.
 
Suffice to say, I rarely receive any compliments from my peers and I really appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to pat me on the back. It was also kind of you to mention the other members of the cast but I cannot pass on this message to them. Unfortunately, we are no longer in contact and they are, in effect, dead to me. In fact, I walked past Aaron Paul in the street this morning and he attempted to approach me, so I asked my security guard to ensure he didn’t invade my personal space. It might sound cruel but after six years on the show I can no longer stand the sight of him. That’s showbiz I suppose but no harm no foul. Knowing Aaron, he’ll recover from his injuries pretty quickly.
 
If you are ever in New Mexico, we should hook up and have dinner sometime. I know a great place that serves the best Fava beans and Chianti in the state (Sorry I couldn’t resist) but seriously, just give me a call and I’ll make myself available.
 
All the best,
 
The One who Knocks
 
P.S I f*cking loved you in FreeJack, man.
