Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins celebrated his long abstinence from alcohol in an Instagram video.

“45 years ago today I had a wake-up call.

I was moving towards disaster, drinking myself to my death, ”said Hopkins.

He didn't want to preach, but a thought had occurred to him: "Do you want to live or die?" He wanted to live.

The actor turns 83 on Thursday.

In his video message, Hopkins also addressed his young fans: "Be brave and mighty forces will stand by you." This attitude carried him through his life.

"Happy New Year!

This will be the best year. "

As the psychopathic Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs", the Brit won the Oscar for best leading actor in 1992.

But Hopkins was also considered difficult and unpredictable, and he often messed with his directors.

Broken marriages, escape into alcohol - in interviews he speaks openly about past dramas in his life.
