Caan Can't Afford To Stop Working

Subscribe to James Caan alerts

Hollywood star James Caan is still working at 65 because his four marriages and five children mean he can't afford to retire.

The Godfather actor is currently working 12 hour days appearing in a TV series, Las Vegas, for the first time - and admits the long hours are a shock after a lifetime in feature films.

However, Caan needs to work to support his past relationships.

He explains, "It's something I'm still trying to get used to. I was up at 5am this morning and we work 12 hour days and more, so it's tough.

"But I have to work. With my four marriages and five kids, I can't afford to retire."

But, the OSCAR nominee - currently married to LINDA STOKES, who he has two young children with - refuses to regret his colourful past.

He says, "I very much believe in love - that's why I keep getting married. I'm really a diehard romantic. I think all marriages are beautiful.

"It's the living together afterwards that's kind of difficult!

"I'm doing good. I've been married for eight years now. It's a record for me, a hell of a record."
