Jack Nicholson: The lothario in winter

Though Nicholson has had a good run, he believes his prospects for finding love again are dim.

Jack Nicholson is no longer on the hunt, said Louise Gannon in the London Daily Mail. At 73, the old lion finds that his power over women has finally waned. “There were points in my life where I felt oddly irresistible to women,” he says. “I’m not in that state now and that makes me sad. I’m definitely still wild at heart. But I’ve struck bio-gravity. I can’t hit on women in public anymore. It just doesn’t feel right at my age.”

Women, he says, have always been his raison d’être. “If men are honest, everything they do and everywhere they go is for a chance to see women.” His wandering attentions, however, haven’t made for lasting relationships. “I’ve been in love in my life, but it always starts with an obsession that lasts exactly 18 months. Then it changes.”

Though he’s had a good run, he believes his prospects for finding love again are dim. “I’ve had everything a man could ask for, but I don’t know if anyone could say I’ve been successful with affairs of the heart. I would love that one last real romance. But I’m not very realistic about that happening.” He pauses, and adds wistfully: “What I can’t deny is my yearning.”
