Michael Caine shared jokes with Queen

SIR Michael Caine once shared a joke-telling session with Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

The 78-year-old actor portrays a 1966 Aston Martin in forthcoming movie 'Cars 2', which also features a vehicle in the likeness of the queen, and he thinks the monarch would love it because she has such a good sense of humour.

He said: "I think she'd react very well. She's good fun.

"I sat next to her at a dinner once, and she suddenly turned to me and said, 'Do you know any jokes?' And I said, 'Yes, but not many I could tell you, Your Majesty.'

"I said, 'You tell me one while I think of one to tell you.' "

However, the veteran actor - who has appeared in more than 150 movies throughout his career -can't remember the humorous retort she told him in response.

He added in an interview with the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I can't remember the joke she told me, but it was very funny. The Queen has an incredible sense of humour, a tremendous sense of fun."
