Jack Nicholson has dated some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, but at age 77 he reveals he fears “dying alone”.
The legendary actor wants “one last romance”, but admits he realizes his womanizing reputation precedes him.
In a new interview with Closer, the semi retired actor said, “I would love that one last romance but I’m not very realistic about it happening. What I can’t deny is my yearning.”
“I’m definitely still wild at heart, but I’ve struck biogravity,” he added. “I can’t hit on women in public anymore. I didn’t decide this; it just doesn’t feel right at my age.”
Nicholson knows he has had everything a man could ever want in life, but has never been successful in relationships.
Jack said, “I don’t think relationships are fixed things. People are necessarily complex and confused beings. We don’t always do the right thing, say the right thing and behave the way we always want to behave”.
Speaking about his reputation as a womanizer Jack said, “No woman has ever recognized what I say as being legitimate – they don’t trust me. They think of my reputation – Jack the Jumper – so I’m damned by what women think.”
A source also told the magazine that Jack was afraid of dying alone in his mansion and that his children have been wanting him to sell it.
Nicholson’s longest relationship was with Addams Family actress Angelica Houston, whom he dated from 1973 until 1989. The relationship finally ended when Nicholson revealed actress Rebecca Broussard was pregnant with his child.
The actor said of his break up with Houston, “I was annihilated emotionally – that was probably the toughest period of my life. I’m childish and I did make a mistake”.
Who knows? Maybe it’s not too late for him to find a special someone.
