One of the greatest performers to ever live is Sir Michael Caine. He is regarded as an iconic figure in Hollywood with a career spanning seven decades.

Michael Caine is the kind of actor who can elevate any film.

On a personal level, Caine is also renowned for being a wonderful gentleman, which is why I find it so upsetting to learn about his current struggles.

I think Michael Cain is cool, and what a damned wonderful actor he is. I wish he would live forever because of the combination of his grammatically faultless speech and his intellectually sounding dialect.

However, rumors of Sir Michael Caine quitting his long career have grown following an interview he delivered in October 2021.

It is well known that the British actor has had health problems, as his wife stated in March 2022. Michael has been married to Shakira since 1973, and she has verified that the actor had a significant back operation at a London hospital at the time.

Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the gaps between the vertebrae in the spine narrow and put pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots. His procedure was intended to alleviate this condition. The illness is known to produce excruciating limb and back pain.

In addition, Caine has worried about his general health for a large portion of the past few years. For instance, he feared contracting cancer.

But now, the Oscar-winning actor cites his wife’s help for aiding him in getting through the bumps in the road.

“I know my days are numbered and that’s the main worry,” he explained back in 2017. “I’ve had to cut back on the drinking and I’m always looking up what’s the best thing against cancer, so I’ll eat that or do this or not do that.”

Shakira saved his life

Sir Michael Caine has been married to his love, Shakira Caine, for over 49 years. Shakira is Guyanese and worked as an actress and model for years, which is how this long-lasting couple eventually met.

Caine has explained that seeing Shakira in a 1970’s coffee commercial for the first time is when he immediately fell for her.

Within eight minutes, Caine started to feel his palms start to sweat and was unable to put his feelings into words. Fortunately, a buddy gave the “Dress to Kill” singer Shakira’s contact information.

They became inseparable right once, and Shakira was able to readily reciprocate Caine’s affections. They have been together for for 50 years and are the epitome of a successful Hollywood love tale.

They have nevertheless gone through difficult times together. At the height of his fame, Caine freely acknowledged that he developed a drinking problem and needed Shakira’s assistance to stop.

According to the actor himself, he used to drink “a bottle of vodka and smoke several packets of cigarettes a day.”

Caine says, “She saved my life, really.”

The pair had two daughters eventually, Natasha Caine and Dominique Caine, and are now the grandparents of two, Miles Michael and Taylor Michael.

Today, Caine claims that Shakira is the one who got him to swap out salt and sugar for healthier alternative options. Caine managed to lose an impressive 30Ibs after changing his habits.

Together, the couple hopes that making healthy choices will allow them to continue watching their grandchildren grow up.

Caine has even said, “Without her, I’d have been dead long ago.”

Michael Caine walking frame

Caine and his wife recently went on a date at Harry’s bar in London, precisely as they may have done at the beginning of their relationship. Caine was observed walking steadily while using a walking frame.

Fans were once more alarmed by the venerable actor as not everyone knew that Caine genuinely used a walking frame to go around.

Shakira, 75, and Michael Caine, 89, however, arrived at the pub in style. Caine appeared in a red lace top and a black blazer, while his longtime wife was attired in a blue shirt and a blue blazer.

Staff helped Caine to exit the bar later in the evening, and the “The Man Who Would be King” actor was seen with the walking frame he is now known to use to help him travel on foot.

Whether Caine will return to the big screen or not remains to be seen. When the British actor spoke with BBC Radio’s Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review, Caine said the 2021 film, Best Sellers, might be the last time he would be seen in a movie.

“Funnily enough, it has turned out to be my last part, really,” said Caine and added that he had not been working “for two years.”

“I don’t have any… there haven’t been any offers, obviously, for two years because nobody’s been making any movies that I wanna do, but also I’m 88,” the British actor went on to say, “There’s not exactly scripts pouring out with a leading man who’s 88, you know?”

But in 2022, Caine made a comeback and appeared on the silver screen again when he starred as Lord Boresh in Medieval, a historical drama film about the life of Jan Žižka.

I love what Michael Caine has done in his career! One of the greatest And I really hope he gets the chance to enjoy life for many years to come – share this article on Facebook if you agree!
