E! News has apparently confirmed with NBC’s Maria Shriver that Jack Nicholson is not retiring and that reports relating to the issue are false. Nicholson’s reps have yet to confirm or deny this. We’ll update you as soon as we know more.
Our original story continues below.
Radar was informed by a couple of sources that Nicholson has been experiencing “memory issues” as of late. Although many are inclined to immediately jump to Alzheimer’s as the cause, Nicholson and company have indicated nothing of the sort.
I mean, come on.
Dude is almost 80.
Nicholson holds the record for being the most Oscar nominated male actor in history (He clocks in with 12 nominations—4 for Best Supporting Actor and 8 for Best Actor) and has received an Oscar nod every decade from the 1960s all the way to to the 2000s. He won his three Oscars in the following movies: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1976), Terms of Endearment (1984), and As Good As It Gets (1996).
I’m also shouting him out for portraying The Joker in 1989’s Batman.
In closing, I wish him a happy retirement and I’m thanking him for giving us over 50 years of quality acting.
You shall be missed, Jack.
