Cary Grant

“I think being relaxed all times, and I mean relaxed, not collapsed, can add to the happiness and duration of one’s life and looks. And relaxed people are fun to be around”. Cary Grant

And relaxed he was, all his 82 years of life and fun he was to be around with.  And even now 26 years after his death, he is fun when you watch his movies; he is relaxed when you look at his photos.

Cary Grant was a gentleman, a style icon, a great movie star, a great father and a great man.

I could have gone on acting and playing a grandfather or a bum, but I discovered more important things in life. I retired when I became a father because I didn't want to miss any part of my daughter's growing up. Jennifer is the best production I ever made. CG
