Among the films starring Gene Hackman are The French Connection, Bonnie and Clyde, Unforgiven, and The Royal Tenenbaums. However, the actor hasn’t released a new film in nearly two decades. The formerly successful actor ceased acting, but not because he had lost interest in entertainment; he was suffering from health problems.
Hackman decided to retire from acting at the age of 74. He has avoided the Hollywood lifestyle and given few interviews since then. However, the 92-year-old has recently spoken up about his decision to stop performing and his life in general.
