Jack Nicholson retiring from acting? The rumour mill was churning today (September 4, 2013) with internet chatter speculating that the 76-year-old Hollywood icon has no plans to appear in any more films after a career spanning five decades. The main reason being tossed about, memory loss.
But hold on. There seem to be conflicting reports. According to NBC's Maria Shriver via E! News, reports of Nicholson retiring from acting due to memory loss or dementia are 100 percent false, adding that the Chinatown star is not suffering from any memory-related illness or dementia and has no current plans to retire. In fact, a source close to the movie icon says Nicholson is actively reading scripts and is looking forward to his next project.
Nicholson's rep has not yet responded.
While this may not clear things up definitively, why not take this opportunity to look back at Jack's most memorable films from an unparallelled career in movies. Let's take a look... Can you handle the truth?
