It had been previously announced that Sir Anthony Hopkins would receive The Legend Award, and ahead of the ceremony the Oscar winner gave an interview with the publication.
During the interview he urged budding actors ‘not to waste their money’ on acting school.
He insisted: ‘Don’t waste your money. They’re failed actors that set themselves up as gurus.’
He added when speaking to the magazine ahead of its ceremony: ‘There’s one very well-known actor with an acting class here in Los Angeles and he’s the star of the show!

‘And all these other students sitting around paying their fees and he’s the star! He’s on stage with them, interrupting them, being rude to them. No, you don’t do that.’
Anthony also candidly discussed his decision to leave the National Theatre, explaining: ‘That’s one of the reasons I left the National Theatre – we had a particular director who was very picky.
‘And that’s one of the reasons that I would be angry. This was in my days of raging paranoia and I warned one director, ”You ever speak to me like that again I’ll punch your face in”.’
He then quipped: ‘Obviously, I don’t do that any more.’
It was announced in July that Idris and his wife Sabrina would present the ceremony, with the actor saying: ‘In their various ways, the GQ Men Of The Year award winners have kept all of our spirits up throughout one of the most difficult years and we are very much looking forward to celebrating with them – and hosting a great party!’
Ahead of this year’s awards, Nick Sargent, chief business officer of culture at Condé Nast Britain and publishing director of British GQ, said: ‘After the unprecedented year we’ve had, I’m thrilled to announce the return of the Men Of The Year Awards for 2021 as a live event.
‘Even though our virtual event last year was a huge success, it’s exciting to be able to come together again in person to celebrate the incredible talent who best represent GQ and continue to push the boundaries on the world’s cultural stage. It will be a night to remember.’
Last year’s GQ Men Of The Year was presented by Jack Whitehall and took place virtually due to the Covid pandemic, with many stars accepting their prizes in pre-recorded clips that formed the ceremony, which was streamed live on YouTube.
