  • At the time of the divorce, Jennifer lived in the UK, while Hopkins was based in Los Angeles, USA, applying for US Citizenship. Despite a long marriage, the couple never had any children together.

Scandalous Beginning & End :

  • Perhaps the reason that Jennifer’s relationship with Anthony Hopkins was so well-publicized is because when the movie star met her, he was already married to actress Petronella Barker when they met.
  • Jennifer was then working as a production assistant. Hopkins, who was ten years Jennifer’s senior, left his wife and a 14-month-old daughter to be with Jennifer.
  • Reportedly, later on, Anthony was also disloyal to her, at least during the last years of their marriage, having supposedly been dating multiple women between 1995 and 2002, including Joyce Ingalls, Francine Kay, and finally, Stella Arroyave, who he married just one year after the divorce with Jennifer.

Personal Details & Early Life :

  • Jennifer was born in Britain on October 26, 1947. Her star sign is Scorpio. She is known to her friends as Jenni.
  • Despite her high-profile husband, she managed to keep most details of her private life and upbringing hidden from public knowledge. So this retired production assistant still remains very much a mystery.
