Sir Michael Caine, Actor

Michael Caine made it to the top of Hollywood from very humble origins - his father worked in a fish market and his mother was a cleaner.

He talks to Owen Bennett Jones about acting, stardom, wealth and happiness - and reveals how he has given up the "bling".

At the age of 73, Sir Michael says he no longer needs to impress people.
