Sir Anthony Hopkins is known for dramatic portrayals of public figures like John Quincy Adams and Richard M. Nixon.  Now he's stepping into the famous silhouette of cinema’s master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock.  The new biopic "Hitchcock" examines the director's life during the filming of “Psycho,” specifically focusing on how his wife Alma Reville helped shape his legacy.    Hopkins tells FOX411 about becoming Hitchcock, meeting the filmmaker back in 1979, his thoughts on the Hollywood husband-wife relationship, and how he’s not just an actor these days. FOX 411: What were the most challenging aspects of turning yourself into Alfred Hitchcock. Anthony Hopkins: The voice was the first part.  To get the voice, the vocal sound of Hitchcock right.  Then the makeup. I didn't want to be overweight. I didn't want to put on weight.

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual's overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual's average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual's consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
