Coppola: 'Nicholson Is A Waste Of Talent'
Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola has accused Jack Nicholson of putting his love of money before his career. The Godfather director is disappointed Nicholson has halted his acting career in favour of enjoying a luxury lifestyle with a string of beautiful women - because he believes it is a waste of talent. Coppola says, "I think if there was a role that (Robert) De Niro was hungry for, he would come after it. I don't think Jack would. "Jack has money and influence and girls, and I think he's a little bit like (Marlon) Brando, except Brando went through some tough times. I guess they don't want to do it anymore."
