Michael Caine and David Bailey in double act

The latest portrait of Michael Caine by David Bailey

Michael Caine is an icon – in part thanks to the photographs of David Bailey – and the pair interview each other in today’s Mail on Sunday Live supplement.

‘I don’t analyse,’ says Caine. ‘The trouble with being an icon is that you don’t know anyone who is an icon.  There’s no cafe where you can go and talk to other icons, there’s no lessons, evening classes or anything. You don’t know what to do, so I don’t do anything. I just relax.’

He does watch his stats though:

‘Jack [Nicholson] and I are friends and we’re the only guys nominated for an Oscar every decade for the past five decades. But he’s won three and I’ve only won two. So he’s beaten me.’
