Jack Nicholson he retired from the stage in 2010, lives withdrawn in his villa on Mulholland Drive, but he is isolated from the world and friends of the three-time Oscar-winning actor fear he will end up like Marlon Brando. “He will die alone”, some insiders confided to RadarOnline noting that it has been more than a year since the star of Shining, Someone flew over the cuckoo’s nest And Something is changedwho turned 85 on April 22, is not seen in public.
Jack Nicholson, 85 years of a legend of Hollywood
by Rita Celli
The latest public release
The last time Nicholson was photographed in public was in October 2021 when he accompanied his son Rayborn 30 years ago from the relationship with Rebecca Broussardat a basketball game. The community of Mullholland Drive, in Los Angeles, (where many Hollywood stars live) is very close and everyone is worried: “Jack doesn’t go out anymore”. He’s physically fine, but “his brain is gone,” said a source, listing possible dementia as a concern.
The last movie
After more than sixty films (the first was The cry killer 1958), Nicholson’s last work was in 2010: the rom-com How do you know it (How do you know) with Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd And Owen Wilson. In 2013, the actor stopped accepting scripts: “Memory problems. He can’t remember his lines anymore,” sources told RadarOnline.

Few external contacts
Now Jack is in contact with some relatives, especially with Ray, the favorite son, but the days of his social life would seem over. Nicholson was married from 1962 to 1968 to the actress Sandra Knightby whom he had a daughter, Jennifer (1963). In 1970 she had another son, Caleb Jamesfrom his relationship with the actress Susan Anspach and in 1981 he had Honeyfrom the relationship with the Danish actress Winnie Hollman. He dated the actress from 1973 to 1989 Anjelica Hustonwho dumped him when she found out Nicholson was having a baby with the actress Rebecca Broussardfrom which he then had Lorraine (1990) and Raymond (1992). In 1994 this relationship also ended. From 1999 to 2000, Nicholson dated actress Lara Flynn Boyle; the two subsequently got back together, only to leave permanently in 2004.
Neighbor with Marlon Brando
In Beverly Hills he was a neighbor of Marlon Brando for decades; after his death, he bought the villa, a 300 square meter mansion paid for 5 million dollars, which the actor “considers his castle”. The fear of friends is that ‘the spirit of the place’ is influencing the social involution of a star with a once very eventful social life. Even Brando, who died in 2004, spent the last few years isolated from his life: “Jack’s friends make comparisons. Ray and Lorraine visit him, but they’ve remained his only contact with the world.”
