... that despite the fact that in 1987 he received the honor of Commander, Order of the British Empire and was Knighted in 1993, Anthony Hopkins, who has lived much of his adult life in the United States made it official and became an American citizen on April 12 2000. (Because of a special dispensation, he was allowed to retain his knighthood so if you ever run into him, it's okay to call him Sir Anthony.)
