Jack Nicholson’s pals fear reclusive star, 85, will ‘die alone’ as he’s not seen in public | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Jack Nicholson was last spotted in public attending a Los Angeles Lakers game in October 2021 with his 30-year-old son Ray, who is also an actor. The Shining star is reportedly spending a lot of time at his Mulholland Drive mansion.
According to a new Radar report, Jack’s friends are worried that the iconic Chinatown star has become a recluse like his pal Marlon Brando, who died aged 80 in 2004.
“He’s made it clear his home is his castle. But people just wish he’d come out of the house and pop up to tell them how — or at least reassure folks he’s OK,” an insider shared with the outlet.
The on-screen star likes to spend time in the luxurious community of Mulholland Drive and spends a lot of time with his family.
It has also been claimed the actor “doesn’t want to face reality”.

Express.co.uk has contacted Jack Nicholson’s representatives for comment.
Jack reportedly bought Marlon’s old home, which boasts four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a pool, shortly after his death.
Before that, the two stars had lived next door to each other for a number of years.
The Oscar-winning actor has not appeared in a movie since 2010, when he played alongside Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson in How Do You Know.
The actor, who has an estimated net worth of of $910m (£747m), denied he was retiring following a career spanning five decades in a rare interview with The Sun that same year.
He also addressed health concerns, claiming he had a “mathematician’s brain”.
“[But] I’m not going to work until the day I die, that’s not why I started this. I mean, I’m not driven. I was driven – but I’m not, I don’t have to be out there anymore,” he said at the time.
“In fact, there’s part of me that never really liked being out there … You get older, you change.”
