The London born actor has come a long way since his humble beginnings. Leaving school at 15, he worked a run of odd jobs before joining the army.
The time away made Michael realize his true passion - acting. On his return, he joined a theater and took on the stage name Caine for extra cache.
In 1964, he was signed up to battle blockbuster "Zulu, but the lead role in "Alfie" – set in swinging 60s London – really rocketed Caine to global fame.
Caine had to wait until the mid-80s for his first Oscar though: in "Hannah and Her Sisters." His second Oscar came in "The Cider House Rules" in 1999. Dial forward to the 21st Century, and Caine’s still delivering the goods.
He’s formed a formidable duo with director Christopher Nolan, acting in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Inception.
As one of only two actors in the world nominated for an Oscar every decade from the 1960s til now (the other is Jack Nicholson) Caine is clearly an actor for every century.
