English film star Michael Caine announced on Saturday that his most recent film credit will be his last, and he is officially retiring from acting at 90 years of age.
During an interview with a BBC Radio podcast, Caine confirmed his decision to end his legendary career that dates back to the 1950s.
Caine stated, "I keep saying I’m going to retire. Well, I am now."
Speaking about his last movie role, Caine explained "I’ve played the lead, and it’s got incredible reviews. The only parts I’m going to get now are old men — 90-year-old men, or maybe 85, you know. And I thought, well, I might as well leave with all this. I’ve got wonderful reviews. What am I going to do to beat this?"
Caine's career is incredible as he has starred in 160 films with his first appearance being in Morning Departure in 1950. Ten years later Caine would be catapulted into stardom for his role in the film Zulu.
Many know Caine best from his appearances in director Christopher Nolan's many films like Inception and the Batman trilogy. But now Caine's filmography is complete, and he can enjoy what will hopefully be a long and fulfilling retirement.
