Michael Caine is confirming his retirement. The 90-year-old actor spoke out in an interview with The Telegraph, confirming that his upcoming film The Great Escaper may be his last. “I am bloody 90 now, and I can’t walk properly and all that. I sort of am retired now,” he said to the outlet. The actor used a walking stick while filming the true story of Bernard Jordan, a British World War II veteran who escaped his retirement home to attend the 70th anniversary of D-Day commemorations in France. “I was so happy to do it. I just loved the character of Bernie. I thought he was incredible, and it’s so beautifully written,” he said of the role. “They gave me a very good walking stick, and I was able to do scenes that needed that. I’d just do them once, and then fall over. But just one take, and that’s it. Forget it.” “I’ve had the best possible life I could have thought of. The best possible wife, and the best possible family. They may not be a family that other people would say is the best possible family — but the best possible family for me,” he added.

Dwayne Johnson says fame doesn’t come with drawbacks because he remembers what life was like before he was famous. He says, quote, “I couldn’t pay rent, I was struggling to figure out who I was, I was broke as [eff]. I try my best to keep all of that in the forefront of my mind . . . I always say, ‘I’m a day away from being evicted again’ so it keeps me hungry.” Dwayne added that fame can be hard to balance if you’re not grounded. Quote, “Anchors and perspective is always important. Humility and kindness matters.” He points out that its greatest benefit is being able to impact people in a positive way around the world. Of course, because he’s famous he can’t just go out in public without causing a scene. But he doesn’t see that as a “drawback” because it’s what he signed up for. (People)
(PROFANITY WARNING: His video contains F-bombs and other profanity.) In case you didn’t know, Kevin Bacon has owned farmland in Connecticut since 1983. When he wanted to expand his property and buy the neighboring plot, he was originally turned down because it’s HAUNTED. The owner told Kevin, quote, “I can’t sell it to you because it’s haunted and I’m afraid that you’ll get possessed and, you know, do some serious damage.” He eventually was able to talk the owner into selling, but under the condition he DESTROY the old haunted house on the property within a month. Kevin was told that the house dated back to the 1700s and involved the murder of a Native American by a colonial soldier. The former owner even had ghostbusters come for a visit. Of course, he destroyed it. And his wife Kyra Sedgwick didn’t want to take any chances, so she didn’t let him keep ANYTHING from the house. And no, he hasn’t seen any ghosts. BUT he hopes someday it happens. (EW)
Just when you thought dating shows had figured out every premise and every gimmick, we get this: “Naked Attraction” . . . a show where people choose a mate based on their NAKED BODIES. It’s a British show, but you can now watch it on Max. Here’s how it works: In each episode, one person has six potential dates to choose from. Those dates are completely naked, and are revealed one body part at a time. Their FACES are revealed LAST. As body parts are revealed, the “chooser” is eliminating potential dates until only two remain. Then the chooser gets naked, and they offer THEIR critiques. Once a match is made, the couple goes on a date . . . with their clothes on. It all sounds pretty horrible, but people will watch it, if only for the disclaimer before each episode that says, quote, “The following series . . . contains full frontal nudity, coarse language, and graphic discussions about the human body.” (Check out a trailer here.)
