Sir Michael Caine on Old Movie Stars, Young Cockneys, and Life Lessons
SirÂ Michael Caine has starred in over 100 movies and won two Academy Awards, and today he shares stories and advice from his remarkable career. Â He reveals why he never believed in taking advice from older movie stars, why he never wanted to be James Bond,Â and how the 1960â€™s made it cool to be a young cockney in the movies. Â He recalls hisÂ humble working class beginnings in the projects of London known as the Elephant Castle, shares how he learned his famous discipline while serving in the Korean War, and advises young actors to "make reliability your brand." Â He talks about coming out of his self-imposed retirement over 20 years agoÂ and says heâ€™s getting better parts now at age 85 than he did when he was a young leading man. Â Plus Michael Caine on why John Wayne never wore suede shoes,Â John Huston on a director's most important job, having the best time of his life filming Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, andÂ doing Vegas with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.
