Jack Nicholson Retires

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Classics, Celeb News, Rumors,

Jack NicholsonJack Nicholson has reportedly retired from acting.

The 76-year-old icon is stepping away from movies after a career spanning five decades, which has seen him appear in many iconic films including The Shining, Batman, Easy Rider and Chinatown.

"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," said a Hollywood insider.

Jack's illustrious career has included three Oscar wins, two for Best Actor in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and As Good as It Gets and a Best Supporting Actor statuette for his turn in the 1983 film Terms of Endearment. Jack has previously singled out his role as The Joker in Tim Burton's 1989 version of Batman with Michael Keaton in the lead role as a personal favorite: "I was particularly proud of my performance as The Joker. I considered it a piece of pop art."
