Sir Anthony Hopkins dances with Salma Hayek in Wales after Oscars win

Sir Anthony Hopkins appeared over the moon as he celebrated his Oscars win for his role in The Father with friend Salma Hayek in Wales.

The acclaimed screen star, 83, couldn’t contain his delight as he boogied in an extravagant home, before the Mexican-American actress, 54, joined him in a funny video shared to her Instagram account on Tuesday.

The director landed his second Best Actor In A Leading Role gong for his performance as a man with dementia in his latest drama film – although he was a no-show at Sunday’s LA-based event.

The film stars swayed to a track by the late Leonard Cohen before sharing a sweet hug.

Salma, who has been keeping busy filming scenes as jailed clairvoyant Pina Auriemma for House Of Gucci in Rome, wrote in an accompanying caption: ‘Celebrating with the king @anthonyhopkins.

‘His 2nd Oscar for his extraordinary performance in The Father Celebrando con el Rey #anthonyhopkins su segundo #oscar por su extraordinaria actuación en El Padre #leonardcohen.’ (sic)

It is unclear why she has travelled to the UK, but she and the Welsh thespian appear to have a close friendship – with the brunette supporting him as he received a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in September 2003.

The mother-of-one shares daughter Valentina, 13, with her fashion mogul husband François-Henri Pinault, 58. MailOnline has contacted Salma’s representatives for further comment.

Sir Anthony plays aging Anthony, whose daughter Anne (Olivia Colman) attempts to help him with his progressing memory loss. 

The producer, who scooped the same award for his performance in The Silence of the Lambs at the 1992 ceremony, skipped this year’s show, held in Union Station, and didn’t give his acceptance speech until waking up on Monday near Port Talbot. 

In his speech, he paid tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, who many expected to win the gong for his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Speaking in a short clip surrounded by sprawling Welsh countryside, Sir Anthony – who became the oldest winner in history – said: ‘Good morning, here I am in my homeland of Wales and at 83-years-of-age I did not expect to get this award. 

‘I really didn’t. I am grateful to the Academy and thank you. I want to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman who was taken from us far too early, and again, thank you all very much. 

‘I really did not expect this, so I feel very privileged and honoured. Thank you.’ 

The TV and film star missed the Hollywood ceremony weeks after also dodging the BAFTA Awards, deciding to paint in his hotel room instead. 

Sir Anthony only learned he had won Best Actor at Britain’s top film awards because of yelling and banging through the walls.

The performer said recently that his late father Richard, who had died in 1992, had inspired parts of his Oscar-winning performance.

Sir Anthony said of one scene where he rows with his daughter Anne: ‘What struck me was my own father was in me. I’m always on to her, nagging at her (Anne). 

‘My father was like that as he was dying, because he was frightened. He was afraid. Not mean, just irascible, scared. 

‘And it’s painful to see that. And you think of the hopelessness, the emptiness, the sadness of it all, and knowing none of us get out of this alive.’
