The Truth About the Children by James Caan

James Caan has died at the age of 82, according to CNN. James was an Oscar-nominated actor, known for his roles in The Godfather and Misery. His breakout role in The Godfather brought him Hollywood success. And while he was very focused on his film roles during his time in the film industry, he also valued and prioritized his family. James had five children: Tara Caan, Jacob Caan, Scott Caan, James Caan Jr. and Alexander Caan.

His family posted on his official Twitter account to announce his death. “It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Jimmy on the evening of July 6,” the tweet read. “The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy at this difficult time.”

James was married four times and had a large blended family. During his last marriage to Linda Stokes, he had two children, James and Jacob. According to the Daily Mail, he was ordered to pay her $400,000 in spousal and child support in 2016 after their 18-year marriage ended in a tumultuous divorce. Most of James Caan’s children seem to live very private lives away from the spotlight. However, one is also a notable actor who followed in his father’s footsteps.

In a 2017 interview with The Fall, Scott opened up about his relationship with his father and his connection back to acting. “My father didn’t want me to get into the business,” he said. “When you’re young you don’t see your dad as a legend, you just know he’s an interesting, colorful, wild cat, and you’re like, ‘I want to be like that guy.'” He explained that to him acting just came naturally to him, having grown up with James as his father.
