Caine’s daughter banned from seeing latest film

Apparently, Michael Caine does too good of an acting job in his latest movie, “Is Anybody There?” Caine plays an aging magician coping with the onset of dementia, befriended by a boy who lives at the same nursing home.

Caine’s wife, Shakira Crane, did not like what she saw in the film, according to a report from The Guardian:

As a result Shakira Caine, his wife of 36 years, found the film so unsettling that she has banned their pregnant daughter, Natasha, from seeing it. “She didn’t like it one little bit,” said Caine, who supports his wife’s decision … “Shakira explained how she felt to me the other day. I said to her, ‘But you have seen me die in lots of movies’. ‘No,’ she said, ‘I have only seen you killed in movies. In this movie you die as an old man’. It touched her.”

Bill Milner, the 14-year-old actor who plays the boy, and Caine received top-notch magical training from Scott Penrose of the Magic Circle.

  2. Pregnant daughter as in she’s pregnant with a daughter or the daughter is pregnant?
    If it’s the latter, I don’t see how they can really stop her from watching it.

  3. Thank you for the spoiler.

    Dumb ****.

  4. May not be a good idea for someone pregnant to watch a heart-breaking movie (like watching her dad die of old age). There should be no problem after she gave birth, though.
