Michael Caine eind dit jaar met pensioen


Michael Caine wil eind 2014 met pensioen gaan, dit zei hij in een interview met de BBC:

“I have no ambitions now… all I do is, I do films that I really want to do. If I don’t get a script – which I don’t have – that entices me out, I’ll be done in December when I do the last picture, the last script I’ve got. I always went into every movie with an aim. It was either to get an Oscar or make money, that’s the two reasons I do movies. I’ve got two Oscars and I’ve got some money so I’m alright.”

De acteur won Oscars voor zijn rollen in Hannah and her Sisters en The Cider House Rules. Hij houdt de mogelijkheid echter open om nog meer films te maken:

“I’ve retired about 30 times and then I always get a script I can’t refuse. Now I’ve retired sort of. I’m doing a second one of Now You See Me, a picture I did about magicians. I do that in December and then I stop. But then someone will give me a script.”
