Anthony Hopkins Barks Like a Dog

"Fracture” co-star calls Anthony Hopkins’ dog bark "perfect.”

Sir Anthony Hopkins has transformed into a number of memorable characters throughout his award-winning acting career.

But between shooting scenes for “Fracture,” the new psychological thriller that opens Friday, the Oscar-winning actor decided to blow off steam by barking like a dog.

Hopkins would deliver the pitch-perfect performance then sit innocently by while members of the cast and crew searched for the loose animal.

“Oh, man, he really does sound like a dog,” declares co-star Ryan Gosling, at the film’s premiere. “You can almost tell the breed. It’s, like, perfect.”

Gosling says he was in constant awe of his co-star’s talent, dog barking included. “He’s just one of those people who are good at everything – he paints, he writes music, he directs, and he does great imitations of cats and dogs,” says Gosling, who plays an assistant district attorney in pursuit of a murderous Hopkins. “He’s a lot funnier than I thought he’d be, just a regular guy.”

When asked about the canine impressions, Hopkins admits to the pranks. “Yeah, I do dog barks,” Hopkins says. “You’ve got to have some fun – otherwise it’s not worth getting out of bed in the morning.”

Hopkins is one of the GREAT actors of our time. Who'd of geusses he can do animals as well. He learned the skill of ventriloquism when he did the movie "Magic".
