Hollywood veteran Jack Nicholson hired 70 scantily-clad waitresses to help celebrate his 70th birthday at a GBP100,000 ($950,000) party yesterday (22Apr07). The Departed star hired the young women - one for each year of his life - to keep guests entertained during the celebrity-packed birthday bash at his Hollywood Hills mansion, where he blew out candles on a seven foot (2.13 meter) long cake. A guest says of the actor, who claims to have bedded over 2,000 women: "Everyone's wondering just how many of the girls Jack already knows as well as a guy can know a girl - if you know what I mean!"
