Sir Michael Caine, one of Britain’s greatest actor, has been named one of Esquire magazine’s heroes for its upcoming heroes series. The legendary actor, best known to the masses as the ever loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth from the Dark Knight Trilogy movies among other great roles, is more than worthy of being considered a hero, with his many strengths as an actor and a person overall.
Caine shared some secrets of success and what it takes to be hero of sorts with the magazine for its upcoming issues, where he graces the cover in one of the five issues dedicated to heroes. Caine doesn’t believe in taking revenge against people, which is admirable. Said Caine, “If anybody does anything against me, I don’t seek revenge.”
As far as success goes, Caine had this to share with the magazine: “If you keep looking backwards you’ll trip over. The movies retire you, sometimes after your first one if you’re not very lucky. You will sit at home and the phone will not ring. That’s it. You’re done.”
