LOS ANGELES, CA – Can we handle the truth? Radar Online is reporting that movie legend Jack Nicholson is retiring from acting.

The website cites ‘a well-placed Hollywood insider’ who says the 76-year-old actor has memory issues and can no longer remember his lines.

Sad news for Nicholson and film fans who’ve enjoyed watching the 3 time Oscar winner for more than 5 decades. Nicholson has been nominated for an Academy Award a record setting 12 times – 8 for best actor (he’s won two) and 4 for best supporting actor (he’s won one).

Should we even try to imagine a movie world without Nicholson? We don’t know about you but we’d rather stick needles in our eyes.

Don’t worry though, you’ll still see him court-side at Laker games and likely photo bombing winners at the Oscars.
