Jack Nicholson bids adieu to the movie business at age 76


Legendary Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson is quietly retiring from the movie business, according to Radar Online. The 76-year old Nicholson reportedly has no plans to appear in films again after a career that has spanned nearly six decades.

Nicholson has won three Academy Awards – two in the ‘Best Actor’ category for (One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and As Good As It Gets) and one for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for his role in Terms of Endearment. He has been nominated for a record-setting 12 Oscars, eight for Best Actor and four for Best Supporting Actor, making him the most nominated male actor in Academy Awards history.

According to the report, Nicholson is calling it quits due to memory loss that has prevented him from remembering the lines being asked of him. He still plans on making his usual public appearances, including his courtside appearances at every Lakers home game.
