Legendary Movie Star’s Decision on Retirement


After a career spanning more than 60 years, Jack Nicholson has decided to retire from the bright lights of Hollywood.

Long time friend and co-star Peter Fonda, said that the legendary actor has decided to retire at the age of 79. 

“I think he is ­basically retired. I don’t want to speak for him, but he has done a lot of work and he has done very well as a person financially,” Fonda said.

The record, 12 Oscar nominee, who is notorious for his “Here’s Johnny!” line in the psycho horror film, “The Shining,” has kept himself out of the limelight since his last significant role in 2010’s, “How Do You Know.”

While Fonda thinks that an incredible role offer may tempt Nicholson out of retirement, he said, “Sometimes ­people have a reason that you don’t know, and it’s not for me to ask.”

Nicholson, is the most ­nominated actor in the history of the Academy Awards. He has won three gongs for his roles in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,” “As Good As It Gets” and “Terms Of ­Endearment,” reported Page Six.

Four years ago rumors circled claiming that Nicholson was ending his career due to memory loss. He later discussed his reason for being absent from the party life saying, “I’m still wild at heart but I’ve hit bio-gravity. I can’t hit on women in public anymore. I didn’t decide this. It just doesn’t feel right at my age.”

He added, “I got tired of ­arguing with women about going to have dinners so I hired a cook. The food is better at my house. But still, a lot of times ladies want to go out, and I’m ­happier in my dinky little house.”
