Last week, he won the Best Actor In A Leading Role award at this year's Oscars ceremony for his role in The Father.
And Anthony Hopkins was seen stepping out for the first time since his win as he posed with fans in the Italian town Cortona, where he is believed to be holidaying with his wife Stella Arroyave.
The actor, 83, -who had his Covid-19 vaccine in January- stood next to a few excited fans and took selfies with them after they saw him in the town.

Sir Anthony and the fans made sure to keep wearing their face masks while they posed for photos, with the fans keeping their hands at their sides.
The actor looked casually chic for his outing as he donned a black jacket over a polo shirt, which he teamed with jeans and slip-on shoes.
It is unclear when Sir Anthony arrived in Italy from the UK, but he last shared a video from Wales via Twitter on May 2 when he visited an old school friend, although it is not clear when the footage was originally filmed.

According to government guidelines, entry into Italy is no longer restricted to just Italian residents and those with necessary reasons to travel.
A person is allowed to travel to Italy if they provide at the airport a negative COVID-19 rapid antigenic or molecular swab test that was taken no more than 48 hours before the flight.
Upon arrival in Italy, a person must report to local health authorities and self-isolate for five days, and then take another rapid antigenic or molecular test at the end of the period.
MailOnline has contacted Sir Anthony's representatives for further comment.
