British actor Sir Michael Caine says his father thought he was gay when he told him he wanted to become an actor.
Speaking to Esquire magazine, the 80-year-old actor said: ‘My dad was a Billingsgate fish market porter. When I told him that I was going to be an actor, he never said a word but I saw his face and thought, he thinks I’m gay.
‘The theater in those days was very gay. But I wasn’t.’
When he was young, he thought he was an ‘ugly bugger’ but others thought of him differently.
