MICHAEL CAINE STALKED OWN WIFE!

HUNTED BEAUTY DOWN AF­TER SEE­ING HER ON TV

National Enquirer - - NEWS -

EESTEEMED Bri­tish act­ing icon Michael Caine has con­fessed that he met his wife of 46 years — af­ter stalk­ing her! The “Al­fie” star was blown away when he saw his fu­ture bride, Guyanese-born beauty Shakira Baksh, in a cof­fee com­mer­cial in 1971. He de­cided on the spot to track her down and make her his own! “I saw this lady on the tele­vi­sion in a com­mer­cial and fell in love in­stantly,” the two-time Os­car win­ner re­called.

With no clue as to who she was, Michael told a friend he’d leave im­me­di­ately for South Amer­ica — be­cause he mis­tak­enly be­lieved she was Brazil­ian!

Ex­cited by his plan, he and a cou­ple of pals went out to cel­e­brate at a disco where he told an­other buddy about the gor­geous stun­ner he was off to chase in Brazil the next day. But the friend set the now 85-yearold ac­tor straight.

“He said, ‘Michael, she’s not Brazil­ian, she is In­dian. And she lives on the Ful­ham Road right here in Lon­don!’” Michael laughed.

The “Get Carter” star sought Shakira out the next day, and within two years he was mar­ried to the model — who’s now 71 and still his life part­ner!
