Sir Anthony Hopkins and his wife Stella are to be honoured for their work with a homeless charity, having become involved with the Midnight Mission eight years ago.
They will receive the accolades at the the 10th annual Golden Heart Awards, at a ceremony hosted in Los Angeles on Monday.
The couple got involved with the charity as many of the homeless people on Los Angeles' 'skid-row' have drink problems. Hopkins, having successfully overcome his battle with alcoholism, gives regular acting classes to the homeless in Los Angeles, and serves food and hands out presents at Christmas time.
