When he was done playing the cannibal psychopath, he was acting in other major films like Bram Stoker’s 'Dracula', 'The Mask of Zorro', 'Amistad' and 'Meet Joe Black'. He even narrated the popular 2000 holiday film, 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'.
In the 1990s, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his contributions to the arts, hence the “Sir” that now precedes his name. In 2003, he received the American version of knighthood when he got his star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Hopkins had a short music career in the 1980s when he released a single called Distant Star, which made it to number 75 on the UK charts. He later said that he wished he could have gone to music college, but he had to “settle for becoming an actor.” He has been in recovery from alcoholism for over 35 years and recently kicked the habit of smoking, as well.

93-year old Lee Grant had a somewhat bumpy career, thanks to some legal issues she found herself involved in. Director Edward Dmytryk named Grant’s husband at the time at the House Un-American Activities Committee, where she was asked to testify against him. When she refused, Hollywood put her name on a decade-long blacklist, during which time she divorced that husband and remarried, as well as had her daughter, Dinah.
After her sentencing was over, though, she got right back on the circuit in Tinseltown. Then, she kept going until she started racking up plenty of awards for her efforts. She won several Emmy’s in the ’60s and ’70s, along with the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1975’s Shampoo and was nominated for many more. Earlier this year, she appeared on screen in 'Reflections'. The actress lives in New York City, and still enjoys a net worth of around $15 million.
