He may be an Oscar-winning Hollywood actor, but behind his cheery exterior, Sir Anthony Hopkins has been hiding a dark family past.
This Tuesday, the 80-year-old told Radio Times that he has not spoken to his only daughter, Abigail Harrison, 48, in 20 years. He doesn't even know where she lives, or if she has children!
"People break up. Families split and, you know, 'get on with your life.' People make choices. I don't care one way or the other. It is cold. Because life is cold," the actor said.
RadarOnline.com has learned Harrison changed her surname in hopes of making it in the film industry without her father's help. She is now an actress and theater director.
While the two have been estranged for most of Harrison's life, they briefly reconnected in the '90s, when she starred in two of his hit films. Afterward, their relationship fell through once again, and they haven't spoken since.
"Children don't like their fathers, you don't have to love each other," Sir Anthony Hopkins continued, adding that he's happier than ever living in Malibu with his third wife.
