Jack Nicholson’s friends fear ‘reclusive’ actor he’ll die alone: report


Jack Nicholson’s friends have shared concerns in regards to the actor’s solitary lifestyle, saying they’re fearful in regards to the end game.

The three-time Academy Award winner hasn’t been seen out in public in over a 12 months as his pals claim he’s “living like a recluse.”

Multiple sources told RadarOnline that the 85-year-old actor “doesn’t leave his house anymore” and that his “mind is gone,” listing concerns of possible dementia.

The daddy-of-five was last seen on the Staples Center for a Los Angeles Lakers game together with his son Ray in October 2021.

Nicholson spends most — if not all — of his time in his plush Beverly Mansion, in response to the report. He purchased the lavish property from his friend, the late Marlon Brando, for $5 million back in 2005. The three,303-square-foot pad boasts 4 bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a pool.

“He’s made it clear his house is his castle. But people just wish he’d come out of the home and pop up to inform them how – or not less than reassure folks he’s OK,” a source told the outlet.

“Jack’s in contact with certain relatives – especially Ray, his protégé, who he’s so pleased with – but his socializing days are long gone,” the insider added, referring to the actor’s 30-year-old son whom he shares with ex Rebecca Broussard.

Despite living a colourful life as a Hollywood elite, “The Godfather” star, who died in 2004, spent his final years alone.

“Brando died a virtual recluse after leading such a colourful life, and Jack’s friends are drawing the comparisons,” a source told the outlet. “His kids will visit, but they’re his only connection to the world.”

“It’s like he doesn’t need to face reality anymore and that’s just sad,” they added.

Nicholson’s last project was the 2011 rom-com “How Do You Know” by which he starred alongside Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Owen Wilson.

So far as his personal life goes, the actor was married to Sandra Knight for six years, tying the knot in 1962.

His longest relationship was with actress Anjelica Huston. The pair dated from 1973 until their romance crumbled in 1990.

Back in 2021, sources concerned about Nicholson’s well-being told RadarOnline that his son Ray and sister Lorraine have been “taking care of him.”

“The Mulholland Drive community is pretty close-knit, and so they are all fearful about him,” an insider said on the time, adding that “physically he’s effective – but his mind is gone.”

“It’s really sad to see such a super-talented actor, like Jack, exit this fashion.”

It’s understood that the actor is currently single and resides alone.

The Post has reached out to Nicholson’s reps for comment.
