With his glasses and working-class cockney accent, Caine seemed an unlikely movie star at first, but with films like The Ipcress File and Alfie, he came to personify the cultural upheaval of 1960s Britain.
The actor had already played hundreds of roles by the time he hit it big due to his repertory theater roots. His experience and talents made him one of the most versatile leading actors on screen. Caine’s success as Alfred in Batman Begins was the start of a series of collaborations that would last for the next two decades. Trying to summarize his seven-decade career investments would be an all-day jawbreaker of a job. We are just as glad to see his constant presence on the silver screen to date.

Although Collins cited his loss of hearing on his left ear as one of the reasons for his retirement, his fans welcomed him back in 2011 when he started performing again. He has released an autobiography called, Not Dead Yet!, which only he can pull off. He has put a lot of investment money on a property in Miami, but he also owns land in England.
At 67 years old, Pierce Brosnan remains as suave and sexy as he was during his stint as the iconic 007 James Bond.

The celebrity even congratulated Craig on his performance with some sage advice on what the actor can do after his final appearance as Bond. In case you didn’t know, Brosnan’s first breakthrough wasn’t on the silver screen but rather in the theater where he worked with Tennessee Williams.
For films, he appeared in box-office hits like Mrs. Doubtfire, Dante’s Peak, Mamma Mia, and Don’t Talk to Strangers. The former 007 also starred in the TV series Remmington Steele.

Rick Astley hit the music scene in the 1980s with his number 1 song, Never Gonna Give You Up.

He did release another album, which was a more matured sounding one. It contained the hit song Cry for Help, but his newfound fame started to fizzle. The funky artist did retire when he was only 27, but this didn’t matter to him since he had enough investment money to support his new family.
Astley did not expect to be an internet sensation, though. In 2007, he unexpectedly started to blow up the Internet. This was because he became an online meme. Netizens even coined a term for it— Rickrolled. Thanks to the prank, Astley rekindled his popularity and became a radio celebrity over the years. Even today, he still looks just the way he was when he was 21 and will not be retiring any time soon, thanks to the Internet.

For him, he will not make any announcement that he will be retiring but simply fade from the Silver Screen.
Redford is as good at directing and producing as he is an actor. Among the films he directed included The Horse Whisperer, The Legend of Bagger Vance, A River Runs Through It.

However, Wood’s untimely passing has placed Wagner as a person of interest, and he had a hard time getting back on track. Eventually, though, the multi-talented actor found love with Jill St. John, whom he married later on.

Although RDJ did not get money loans from him, Howard believes that he should be reimbursed.
