Jack Nicholson is ‘done proving himself’


Jack Nicholson reportedly “doesn’t need to prove anything”. The Chinatown actor has taken a step back from filming, causing rumours that his age or health got in the way. His last acting role was in the film How Do You Know, which was released in 2010. “Jack doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone anymore,” a source explained to Page Six. “He’s got F-U money, a beautiful house and beautiful art on the walls.” The 77-year-old came out to the Apollo Theatre benefit in East Hampton on Saturday. He attended the event with his 22-year-old son, Raymond, as well as his friends Lorne Michaels and Tommy Baratta, Page Six reports.

‘ I'm not going to work until the day I die, that's not why I started this’ 

“I have a mathematician's brain... I'm not going to work until the day I die, that's not why I started this,” Jack previously told the British newspaper The Sun, via the Daily and Sunday Express. “I mean, I'm not driven. I was driven – but I'm not, I don't have to be out there any more. In fact, there's part of me that never really liked being out there...You get older, you change."

The legendary actor is known for his past attendance of wild parties and as one of the original Hollywood womanisers. However, he says he always took care of himself.

"Contrary to opinion, however sated I got, I always looked after myself,” he told The Sun. “I’m in good shape — a little stout, but healthy. And I’ve done it all.

“I’ve woken up in trees, I’ve woken up almost hanging off cliffs, but I’ve always known how to sort myself out."
