A second Oscar win deserves as much ...

We have a new favorite celebrity friendship, and no, it is not Youn Yuh-jung and Brad Pitt (though if you see them together at Nobu, call me). 

In the days following Anthony Hopkins's surprising Oscar win (the actor himself was fast asleep at his home in Wales when he was awarded the acting prize), Salma Hayek shared a video of herself and the two-time Oscar winner swaying theatrically (how else?) to Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me to the End of Love."

"Celebrating with the king @anthonyhopkins 👑 his 2nd Oscar for his extraordinary performance in The Father," Hayek captioned her Instagram video.

Hopkins even replied (with an emoji and everything!), commenting, "Thank you queen 👸🏻 for the love and laughter. A memorable, beautiful day."

Evidently, Hayek and Hopkins have been friendly since at least 2003, when the former attended the unveiling of the Silence of the Lambs actor's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
