If you know any put them here =]]




"The British actor Anthony Hopkins [who shot to fame as Hannibal Lecter] was delighted to hear that he had landed a leading role in a film based on the book The Girl From Petrovka by George Feifer. A few days after signing the contract, Hopkins travelled to London to buy a copy of the book. He tried several bookshops, but there wasn’t one to be had. Waiting at Leicester Square underground for his train home, he noticed a book apparently discarded on a bench. Incredibly, it was The Girl From Petrovka. That in itself would have been coincidence enough but in fact it was merely the beginning of an extraordinary chain of events. Two years later, in the middle of filming in Vienna, Hopkins was visited by George Feifer, the author. Feifer mentioned that he did not have a copy of his own book. He had lent the last one – containing his own annotations – to a friend who had lost it somewhere in London. With mounting astonishment, Hopkins handed Feifer the book he had found. ‘Is this the one?’ he asked, ‘with the notes scribbled in the margins?’ It was the same book.

If true that is very bizarre."

Too many things wrong with this --

I have a doubt that so many bookstores would be sold out of the same book at the same time, and surely he'd have spoken to someone before deciding to give it up about ordering a copy of it. Of course he could have just ordered it online, which makes the most sense, being as he's famous and would probably have a difficult time just willy-nilly walking around London book shopping without being recognized.

Why in the world would he be on a train? Come on. Anthony Hopkins? Taking the train? I doubt it.

Two years later he was talking to the author, and the author told him that TWO YEARS previously he had lent the last copy of his book to someone and it wasn't returned? Seriously, in the two years that followed he never acquired another copy? TWO YEARS?! Yeah, no.
