Womanizer low birth

Brawlers and ladies` man on the scene, it is not like that in my life. He is prone to childishness

and finds his wife - Shakira, which has been married for 27 years - the most

beautiful woman in the world.

Born from a porter-father and mother-cleaners in the southern district of London, Maurice Maykluayt emerged from poverty to fame in 1966 when played womanizer low birth named Alfie, and later - four-eyes-agent Harry Palmer in a trilogy about spies. Along the way he threw the second half of his last name, replacing it with a more refined Kane.

At the beginning of his career, Kane has been done for a drunkard and bully. Since then, he always tries to curb his tendency to binge and violence, while trying to be polite, refined. Caine starred in more than 70 films, but probably the most successful and the bravest of them - "The Man Who Would Be King" (1975), although the "Golden Globe Award" he received for "Education Rita" and "Oscar" - for best Supporting Actor in the film "Hannah and her sisters."

Now, in his 64 years old, he removed less often, trying to devote more time to their restaurants (he is the owner of five restaurants in London and one - in Miami). Many viewers remember him well as a sentimental con drama "Blood and Wine" (1997), as well as Captain Nemo in the miniseries "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." 1998 brought him the role of dowdy agent talent in the film "A small voice," directed by Mark Herman. A year later, he introduced to the audience Dr. Wilbur Lurch in the movie "The rules of wine making shop" on the novel by John Irving. Dr. Larch runs an orphanage and makes abortion out of compassion for mothers and unborn children. The film is based on the relationship of doctors with one of the wards, Homer, played by Tobey Maguire. This role brought another Kane "Oscar" for Best Supporting Actor. Most recently, he appeared on the screen in the romantic comedy Peter Yatesa "Calling the actor" as a spirit that teaches James Spader appreciate the love.

There is something very soothing demeanor Kane. Its simplicity makes it easy to communicate with him. In it there is no affectation, though he has a strange habit when talking with someone steps back and gives him his eyes up and down, and during the conversation to look him straight in the eye.

The question of why he became a cult hero of modern British youths causing a mischievous twinkle in his soft blue eyes, "I have my own theory on this subject in most films made in the UK in recent years, starring starring men who were. smart and fun, and at the same time a little suspicious, but they all seemed impotent and "frozen." I`m one of the few actors who continue to play a heterosexual masculinity. in rebyatnet doubts about me. they watch me and trust me. I think . that the heroes of such films as "The Italian Job" (1969), "Get Carter" (1971) and "Alfie" (1966) continue to have an impact on young people`s first film tells us about good football, the hero of the second film - Carter - a gangster, who beat anyone he does not like, right in the jaw, well, the hero of the third simply seduced every woman on the way. If you add it all together, you get a pretty good guy who plays football well, beats those he does not like, and always gets the girl. I play a guy for 30 years. And, believe it or not proud of it. "

He has a tendency to childishness, even in its present age it is as charming and thinned. He is married to the same woman for 27 years. Her name, Shakira, she is a former Miss Guyana. Kane saw her for the first time in the advertising of coffee "Maxwell House", and then found it. "If you work in a business where you are surrounded by a very beautiful woman, and you at the same time going to marry your wife must be even more beautiful it, - he says -. Shakira is a woman Here it is beautiful not only externally I myself.. not very beautiful, and besides, I have not too good internal quality. I`m too stubborn to me easily lived, but she loves me so much that tolerate it. we are very happy together, because we are intertwined with each other. we know he thinks every one of us. we easily let in the other people in our lives, but remain honest partners. it will be very difficult to get a divorce, because we have to unravel, and we die alone. "

He never thought about whether there was a successful his life. He had a miserable childhood; he participated in the fighting in Korea while serving in the army; he was 10 years made its way to television ... In general, it was difficult to gain a foothold in life. Success he achieved with the film "Zulu" (1964), which played an army officer from a higher composition. And after a while, "Alfie" (1966) confirmed that the star potential is provided to him. To date, his personal income from the movies and restaurants, is 40 million dollars. He has two daughters, Natasha, has a degree in philosophy, and Dominique, the daughter of his first wife, Patricia Hayes, who owns the farm for the breeding of horses.

His philosophy is to calmly accept everything that will meet on the way. "It is impossible to predict which movie will achieve the greatest success, so you just have to keep working and if one picture would be a failure, you must have two more left.", - He says.
