"I ALWAYS KNEW I'D EVENTUALLY GET AROUND TO PLAYING ME MUM"
The other day, Michael Caine was said to have announced his "retirement" from acting. "I haven’t retired and not a lot of people know that," Caine tweeted later the same day. Somewhere in between all of that, Sam Irvin posted the photo above on Facebook, with the following caption:
Happy Retirement from Acting to 88-year-old Michael Caine (though I don’t believe a word of it — like Cher’s multiple retirements 😝😘). I had the honor and pleasure of working with Michael in 1979 on DRESSED TO KILL (I was Brian De Palma’s assistant). Here we are at base camp outside Michael’s trailer. When he appeared on the set for the first time in full drag as “Bobbie,” he broke the ice by saying, “I always knew I’d eventually get around to playing me mum.” Total gentleman. Consummate professional. Witty. Pure delight. We all adored him. Good luck to Michael on his new chapter as a bestselling author!
