Bruce Willis fascinated by Anthony Hopkins

bruce When Bruce Willis found out that Anthony Hopkins was going to join the cast of Red 2, he was very excited. Bruce admits that he is a huge fan of Hopkins and says he was fascinated watching the Oscar winner working.

He said: “The day that we found out that Tony was going to do the film, I was like, ‘Yeah! This is so good!’ Everybody was very excited – Dean Parisot too, Dean is our director and is a very low-key guy but he was very, very excited that we got Tony. The other assorted kooks and characters who are in this film were all so happy to watch Tony work. There were times when I kind of stopped acting – I was just a fan for a few moments on the set.”

John Malkovich? Yeah! I’d met Bruce before just briefly, and he gave me a great welcome, everyone did,” the 76-year-old actor said.

Red 2 will be released in theaters in the United States on July 19.
