With an unmatched career marked with a mix of unique roles, the iconic British actor Michael Caine announced retiring at the age of 90 bidding farewell to the cinema universe after two Oscars and several other awards.
“I’ve figured, I’ve had a picture where I’ve played the lead and had incredible reviews … What am I going to do that will beat this?” said the actor according to several media reports.
Caine unveiled that he wanted to end his film career, which has spanned seven decades, on a high note.
“The only parts I’m liable to get now are 90-year-old men. Or maybe 85. They’re not going to be the lead. You don’t have leading men at 90, you’re going to have young handsome boys and girls. So I thought, I might as well leave with all this,” he explained.
Caine is known for playing Batman’s loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and for starring in Christofer Nolan’s “The Prestige”.
He has appeared in 160 movies and is one of only five male actors to be nominated for an Academy Award for acting in five different decades.
