Venerable actor Michael Caine (left) poses with his wife, Shakira Caine, before the premiere of his film Batman Begins on June 6, 2005. The premiere was held at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. Michael Caine played Alfred Pennyworth, venerable butler to billionaire Bruce Wayne, who -- spoiler alert! -- is secretly Batman. Michael Caine was born in 1933, so he turned a venerable 72 years old in 2005.
