Napoleon Dynamite Star Discovers Hopkins Is A Fan28 August 2006
The actor, who played outcast PEDRO in the hit film, was attending the premiere of War of the Worlds when Hopkins recognised him.
Ramirez says, "He was wearing a 'Vote For Pedro' badge and he looked at me and said, 'Ah yes, you're Pedro.' I'm like, 'You're Sir Anthony Hopkins and you have a button.'
"He said, 'You were really funny in the movie.'"
And Hopkins isn't the only celebrity voting for Pedro - "Annette Bening once came up to me and said, 'Our kids, we love your film.' These are icons for the art of cinema."
