Sir Michael Caine looked dapper as he stepped out with wife Shakira to Scott’s restaurant in London’s Mayfair in Thursday night.
The actor, 88, was spotted wearing a navy suit and crisp blue shirt which he wore unbuttoned at the collar as he left the eatery with friends.
Shakira, 74, cut an elegant figure in a black jacket and matching trousers while she carried a bag bedazzled with crystals which shimmered under the nearby lights.
Sir Michael was helped to a taxi by a member of staff and the couple were in good spirits as they posed with friends outside the establishment before making their way home.
He and Shakira tied the knot in Las Vegas in 1973 and the couple have one daughter together, Natasha, 48, while the Alfie star has another daughter Dominique, 65, from his previous marriage with actress Patricia Haines.
The star has been using a walking stick since he suffered from an unfortunate ankle injury when he slipped on some ice in February 2018.
The veteran actor recently spoke out to confirm he is not stepping away from the Hollywood mainstream after prompting retirement rumours during a recent interview.
Sir Michael was appearing on BBC Radio 5 to promote his latest movie Best Sellers when he bemoaned the lack of opportunities for older actors.
He referred to the film as ‘my last part, really,’ noting that he has limited mobility and adding: ‘There’s not exactly scripts pouring in for a leading man that’s 88, you know?’
However, he clarified earlier this month that he will not be walking away from the acting world in a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post.
Using his iconic catchphrase, the British star wrote: ‘I’m not retiring, and not a lot of people know that!’
During his recent interview Sir Michael, who began acting in 1953 when he took a job at a repertory company in West Sussex, said that ‘I haven’t worked for two years and I have a spine problem which affects my legs so I can’t walk very well.’
Further he pointed to the memoirs he has been publishing over the past several years – The Elephant In Hollywood in 2010 and Blowing The Bloody Doors Off in 2018.
‘And I also wrote a book, a couple of books which were published and were successful so I’m now not an actor – I’m a writer,’ he said.
Appearing on Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review he told the hosts his literary lifestyle was ‘lovely because as an actor you have to get up half past six in the morning and go to the studio. As a writer you can start writing without leaving the bed.’
Sir Michael shared that ‘I think’ that Best Sellers ‘would be’ his last film as ‘there haven’t been any offers obviously for two years because nobody’s been making any movies I’d wanna do. But also I’m 88. There’s not exactly scripts pouring out with a leading man who’s 88, you know?’
