Oscar-winning ‘Godfather’ veteran Al Pacino may be turning 75 on April 25, but he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
In an interview with ‘Closer Weekly’ at the recent NYC premiere of his new movie, ‘Danny Collins,’ he said, “I guess I’m looking forward to a porch and a rocking chair, but so far, things keeps pulling me back in.”

“When you’re my age and someone says, ‘How old are you?’ it’s like asking me, ‘How much longer do you have left?’” Al told ‘Closer.’ “I don’t know. I don’t think in numbers.”
This great attitude makes virtually every actor in Hollywood still want to work with him. Jennifer Garner, who starred alongside Al in ‘Danny Collins,’ said, “He’s not afraid to play and imagine and just go there and have a good time.”

After decades in Hollywood, Al told ‘Closer’ he has no regrets.
“I’ll tell you why — out of mistakes, and I’ve made plenty, I’ve learned,” he explained to ‘Closer.’ “Through those mistakes, I’ve met people, and my life has changed. Mistakes aren’t quite mistakes, unless you slip off a roof. Then you can’t come back.”
