The Godfather is going nowhere, says Al Pacino

Good news for Al Pacino fans - he has no desire to retire from the film industry.

The Godfather might be 75 but he has no plans to quit and take things slow.

Pacino, who stars in new movie Manglehorn, said: "I have no desire to quit. Sorry. Why? Why didn't I quit 20 years ago, 40 years ago? What's the point of quitting?"

Although he is certain his acting abilities have not diminished with age, Pacino accepts some people have to retire because they're physically not able to do their jobs any more.

Speaking to The Guardian, he said: "A painter can be 100 and paint a group of college kids playing football. It doesn't matter, because he's not playing football. He just grabs a brush and does the strokes. That's the difference (with age). That's really all it is."
