Sir Michael Caine took method acting to a whole new level when he tried not to blink for eight years because of something he read in an acting book: "They thought I was a psychopath. I used to frighten the life out of people." https://t.co/bEsPLi5So1 pic.twitter.com/X8gjBX6koL— IndieWire (@IndieWire) August 26, 2021
In a new interview with The Mirror, the 2x Oscar-winner revealed he read a book called ‘Teach Yourself Film Acting’ and took one very important lesson from it. “One thing that stuck in my mind was, ‘Don’t blink. You must never blink.’”
“For the next eight years, I walked around trying not to blink. People around me, my mother and everybody, thought I had gone nuts. They thought I was a psychopath. I used to frighten the life out of people.”
For it, he received the nickname “snake eyes.”
ONTD, do you blink?
