In March this year, he told in an interview that his retirement is near since he finds it difficult to cope with the early start and long shifts of the showbiz.

He is now 88 now and has worked for over six decades in this field. Caine does not want to leave but also is aware that it will happen soon.

He said:

“They haven’t retired me just yet. I feel it’s coming. “I’m 85 this week and getting up at 6.30am and learning six pages of dialogue… well, it’s not my idea of paradise.”

He said that he never turned down any roles but regretted doing some roles.
