Hopkins and I are a match made in heaven: Mirren
London: Helen Mirren claims she and Anthony Hopkins - who starred together in 'Hitchcock' and will be seen together again in 'RED 2' - are a match made in heaven.
The 67-year-old starred alongside the 75-year-old actor in 'Hitchcock' - a biographical film about the making of Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' - and will be seen on screen together again in upcoming action sequel 'RED 2'.
Mirren says Hopkins is an inspiration on set and she is very proud of their work together.
"It's a match made in heaven, if you ask me. Somehow we've always missed working together. And now I get to do two movies with him in one year. Completely coincidental. The incredible thing about Anthony is that he's still a real inspiration.
"He puts all the height of his incredible expertise, ability, talent and professionalism into anything and everything he does," she said.
The Oscar-winning actress also revealed she is inspired by Gene Hackman, the retired American actor who won three Golden Globes and two BAFTAs in a career that spanned five decades.
"Gene Hackman is someone I really, really admire and he has the same quality. No matter the material, he gives it his highest quality performance. That's the kind of actor I want to be."
