Actor Sir Michael Caine is best known for his role as Alfred in the “Batman” movies, the firey pageant coach in both “Miss Congeniality” movies, and many more.
In 1973, Caine married his second wife, fellow actress Shakira Caine, and they have been together ever since.
In fact, as Caine most recently admitted while promoting a new book, he and his wife are inseparable. He added that she even travels to be on set with him when he is making movies.
According to IMDb, the British film icon has filmed over 100 movies since marrying Shakira.
He credits Shakira’s presence on set with him to why he’s been so faithful to her after 35 years of marriage.
Caine said, according to the Daily Mail:
“For a start, the obvious thing on location is you’re going on location, you’re married, with a load of beautiful actresses. You know what’s going to happen.”
“When you go away for a long time … you visit places the other one’s never seen, you eat in restaurants the other one’s never been, you meet people the other one’s never met.”
The actor also said that he credits their successful marriage to always being with each other.
Caine stressed that it’s when two people in a relationship live very separate lives that they get into trouble:
“Both of you have started a separate life and it’s very important you don’t do that I think. So my wife goes with me everywhere.”
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the actor and father of two went on to brag about how happy and good his life has been.
The 85-year-old said:
“I can’t think of anyone who has a better life than me. I am so happy. People say to me, ‘Do you believe in God?’ And I say, ‘If you had my life, you’d have to believe in God.'”
