Jack Nicholson has retired from acting aged 67, with a source saying he is bowing out because his ''memory isn't what it used to be.''
Jack Nicholson has reportedly retired from acting.
The 76-year-old icon is stepping away from movies after a career spanning five decades, which has seen him appear in many iconic films including 'The Shining', 'Batman', 'Easy Rider' and 'Chinatown'.
A Hollywood insider told RadarOnline.com: ''Jack has - without fanfare - retired.
''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. His memory isn't what it used to be.''
Jack's illustrious career has included three Oscar wins, two for Best Actor in 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and 'As Good as It Gets' and a Best Supporting Actor statuette for his turn in the 1983 film 'Terms of Endearment'.
He said: ''I was particularly proud of my performance as The Joker. I considered it a piece of pop art.''
Jack is also philosophical about his fame, saying he believes he has ''done OK''
In an interview published in Britain's Esquire magazine in June, he said: ''I take responsibility for my successes as well as my failures. But when I look at my professional mistakes, I'm always left with the feeling that maybe I should have done more. These are my private musings.
''I'm such a perfectionist. I always feel over-praised, or whatever. In the abstract, I know I'm a good person, a good professional. But it's nice to be noticed a little bit, ain't it?''
The last film Jack appeared in was 2010s 'How Do You Know', which also starred Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.
