The 76-year-old Reservoir Dogs star beat his speech impediment when he was a little boy, but, as he struggles with the fast pace of his busy life, Harvey has noticed he's struggling with his speech again.

"When I was a little boy, I had a stutter. I still stutter, but much less," he told Britain's Esquire magazine. "Back then, it was a real champion stutter. In time it faded away, for the most part. Now it seems to be returning a little bit. Maybe because I’m so fatigued. I don’t mean just now, but in these years."

Harvey opened up about the issue during a question and answer session with the publication. He also explained that despite his advancing age, he has no intention of retiring anytime soon.

"I don’t think about retiring," he said. "I will be retired at the proper time."

Harvey has recently finished working on the movies Gandhi of the Month, Chosen and Lies We Tell, as well as promoting the acclaimed Youth, in which he co-stars with Michael Caine, so his slate of movies is as busy as ever.
