    Default Report: Memory Loss Forces Jack Nicholson to Retire

    It has been three years since Jack Nicholson last appeared on screen and now Radar Online is reporting that the three-time Oscar winner has retired from acting due to a failing memory that makes it impossible for him to remember his lines. Radar's source says Nicholson will continue to be a public figure, just not on film.

    The 76-year-old icon has no plans to appear in films again after a career spanning five decades.

    “Jack has — without fanfare — retired,” a well-placed Hollywood film insider confirmed to Radar.

    “There is a simple reason behind his decision — it’s memory loss. Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him.

    Nicholson's decision puts him in a club with fellow Oscar winners Sean Connery and Gene Hackman, who also quietly retired from the acting profession in their mid to late seventies.

    Radar adds that Nicholson will still be seen courtside at Lakers' games and in public appearances, such as his co-presentation of the Best Picture Oscar at last year's Academy Awards.

    Nicholson's screen career began in 1956 in the television series Matinee Theatre. After numerous film and television appearances, stardom would finally arrive thirteen years later with a memorable supporting role in 1969's Easy Rider. From there, Nicholson never looked back. On his way to becoming a screen legend, Nicholson would rack up an incredible twelve Oscar nominations, winning three.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    The best part of that exchange came when Nicholson told Lawrence that he once had an old girlfriend that looked like her.

    Lawrence responded with something like, "What about a new girlfriend?" And smirked.

    Jacks response..."I thought about it..." Puts shades on and walks away.

    good news.....Maria Shriver has made a statement on his behalf that he is not retiring, and is in fact reading scripts

    now are they going to start saying he is retiring because he can't speak for himself?
