Anthony Hopkins’ $5 million Malibu mansion is just feet away from falling into the sea after torrential downpours caused extensive cliff erosion.
The Hollywood actor, 81, owns a luxury home by the beach in California, but recent bad weather has meant the house is now perilously close to the cliff edge.
The area has been plagued by disaster in recent months as many homes burned to the ground in the devastating wildfires there last November.
Several of Hopkins’ neighbours lost their homes, but his appeared to have escaped relatively unscathed.
There are several large tarpaulins that have been put up around the building, suggesting there may be repair works underway after possible fire damage.
However, the pictures show the other major threat facing the house as cliff erosion has left the building teetering on the cliff edge.
Recent storms brought heavy rain and mudslides to Malibu and they will only have exacerbated the erosion issues facing residents including The Silence Of The Lambs star.
While Hopkins’ home appears relatively in tact after the bad weather, there are plenty of stars who lost their properties in the fires last year.
Miley Cyrus and her husband Liam Hemsworth were left devastated when their $2.5 million Malibu mansion was destroyed in a blaze.
They shared pictures of the charred remains of their home, which had been burned to the ground. All that was left was a sign that read ‘Love’.
Cyrus wrote in a post on social media: "’I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now."
Actress Kim Basinger, reality TV star Khloe Kardashian and pop singer Robin Thicke also lost their homes in the fires.
The wildfires of November 2018 were the most destructive in the state’s history – almost 300,000 people had to evacuate their homes and three people were killed.
Around 1,600 residences were destroyed in the flames, which were eventually brought under control on November 21.
