In DailyMail.com exclusive videos have appeared with 85-year-old Jack Nicholson, who has not been out in public for a year and a half, preferring to live in his mansion in Beverly Hills all alone. The actor was last seen in October 2021, at a match of his favorite basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers, where he came in the company of his son Ray. According to rumors, 31-year–old Ray is one of the few people that Nicholson admits to himself.
This time Nicholson was filmed on the balcony of his house on Mulholland Drive, when he was enjoying the morning air and the view of the Franklin Canyon Reservoir. The three-time Oscar winner appeared on the balcony in a stretched orange T-shirt and baggy sweatpants and stood for a while leaning on the railing, listening to the chirping of birds and watching a helicopter fly by.
His last film was the imperceptibly passed tape "Who knows ..." (2010), in which, in addition to Nicholson, Owen Wilson and Reese Witherspoon starred. Since then, he has not appeared in movies, which is why rumors began to spread that Nicholson left because he was unable to remember the lines due to dementia. This year, the media published new details – from an anonymous friend who told Radar that Nicholson is in good physical shape, but "his mind has gone crazy." "He made it clear that his home is his fortress. But people just want him to come out of the house and show that everything is fine with him," said the same anonymous person. "Jack keeps in touch with some relatives, especially Ray, his protégé, of whom he is so proud, but the days of hanging out for him are long gone." In conclusion, the insider expressed concern that Nicholson could die all alone, as happened to his former neighbor and colleague Marlon Brando.
However, shortly after these messages, another acquaintance of the actor, Fox News journalist Bill O'Reilly, said that information about the deterioration of Nicholson's mental health was "nonsense". "A few months ago I was visiting Jack Nicholson. I had a long conversation with him, he follows the news very closely, and he had a lot of smart questions for me", - O'Reilly said. – We have been friends with him for several decades. He's 85, okay? But his intelligence is sharper than that of the US president".
Now Nicholson is a bachelor alone, in general, he has six children from five women. His complicated relationships with girlfriends and children could be explained by the peculiarities of family history: Nicholson was almost forty when he found out that the woman he had considered his sister all his life was actually his mother. However, one of the most famous actors of all time was not distinguished by matrimonial constancy before that. Even before the Oscars, he earned a reputation as an unsurpassed heartthrob and womanizer. Among his mistresses were actresses, singers and models Anjelica Huston, Michelle Phillips, Bebe Buell, Lara Flynn Boyle, Kate Moss, Paz de la Huerta. Playboy model Karen Mayo-Chandler once called Nicholson a "non-stop sex machine," and Kim Basinger was the sexiest person she had ever met. The biography of the actor "Nicholson", written by Mark Eliot, says that his life at the peak of his career was filled with "round-the-clock parties, booze, drugs, sex (...) and beautiful, hot, ready-for-anything girls."
