Legendary Film Actor Michael Caine Thinks He Could Die At Any Moment From Now Because Of These 2 Reasons
SIR Michael Caine has shed over ten kilograms on a health kick and admits he fears dying of cancer.
The Get Carter star, 84, says he wants to see his grandkids grow up.
He told The Sunon Sunday: “I know my days are numbered and that’s the main worry.
“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.
“I’ll probably drop dead talking to you but you know I’ve lost 13kgs just because I want to see my grandchildren. They’re twins of six and a boy of seven. I’d like to get to 17 for the boy.”
Oscar winner Caine, dad to Dominique and Natasha, banned all sugar, salt and gluten from meals but admitted his weakness will always be a bacon sandwich.
He praised wife Shakira, 70, for saving him from his destructive lifestyle a decade ago.
The actor said: “Without her I’d have been dead long ago.
“I used to drink a bottle of vodka a day and smoke several packs of cigarettes.”
Caine’s 163rd film, heist caper Going In Style is out next month.
He said: “When the offers of work stop I will say I have retired.
“The film business will have to give me up, not the other way around.”
