The "Hollywood" element of the term refers, naturally enough to the famous, celebrity studded, film capital of the world. When used in this context it implies a larger-then-life person, elements of bling or flashiness, moviestar good looks and of course a pearly white All-American smile.
The "Hopkins" element is less easy to pin-point, however it can most certainly be traced to Limerick, a city in the West of Ireland where a man by that name famously became the very embodyment of "Hollywood" style and glamour at the height of the Irish boom ecomomy. It is rumored that the person to whom the phrase became associated spent lavishly on dining out, local delicacies including Hot Chicken Rolls and ZeWeTon in particular, on cars and even Speed Boats.
A person who enjoys endulging in nightlife may also be know as a Hollywood Hopkins, especially if seen indulging in a lot of alcohol or practicing fashionable salsa dancing in nightclubs.

This is an increasingly popular abbreviation of the Irish surname Hannon. The reasoning behind this unusual, and unusually long for an abbreviation, abbreviation can be found in the predictive text function of popular Nokia Mobile Phones. When the user types in Hannon the meaningless word Hammo will appear. Naturally this term began to stick and has now passed into the common lexicon.
It is generally used as a term of endearment when refering to Hannon the Younger of the Greater Hannon Clan of Parteen, Co. Clare. Legend has it that when Hannon the Younger returned from his travels overseas he brought with him many fantastical tales, the telling of which instantly endeared him to the locals.
It is widely recognised that many of Hammo's tales of adventure centre around the taming of wild Amazon Women generally in posession of enormous breasts. Analysis of these stories has revealed that while the information with regard to the breast size of many of Hammo's conquests is accurate these women are not to be confused with Xena the Warrior Princess style Amazons. A fairer understanding would be comparision with larger women of the Dawn French subspecies.
"Hey did you hear that story about Hammo?"
"I heard that Hammo once tamed a woman this big." (Accompanied by wide armed gesturing)
