Jack Nicholson has retired from acting.
The Hollywood Legend has reportedly filmed his last movie. A Radar Online source claims that the 76-year-old actor has been having trouble remembering his lines lately and has decided to hang it up.
The source said: “Jack has, without fanfare, retired. There is a simple reason behind his decision, it’s memory loss. Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him. His memory isn’t what it used to be.”
Nicholson hasn’t made a movie since the 2010 film How Do You Know and he doesn’t have any films in the works. A spokesman for the actor hasn’t confirmed the news but it doesn’t appear like Nicholson is interested in making any more movies.
Radar’s source said that Nicholson was approached to play a character in the new movie Nebraska but the actor told producers that he had no interest in making another movie.
If Nicholson really has retired, he has left behind an amazing body of work. The actor has been nominated a dozen times for an Oscar and he has won three times. His first came in 1976 for One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
He won another Oscar in 1984 for Terms Of Endearment.
His last Oscar came in 1998 for As Good As It Gets.
In addition to his Oscar winning roles, Nicholson also starred in classic movies like The Shining, Easy Rider, Chinatown, A Few Good Men, and several others. Here’s a video of Dannyy DeVito presenting the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award to Jack Nicholson.
