This Legendary Actor is Retiring After 60 Years on the Silver Screen

Hollywood superstars do not get bigger than Jack Nicholson.

But after a career stretching more than 60 years featuring a record 12 Oscar nominations, the legendary actor is quitting Tinseltown.

The notorious ladies’ man — ­famous for his “Here’s Johnny!” line in the psycho horror flick “The Shining” — has been enjoying a quieter life since his last significant film role in 2010’s “How Do You Know.”

Now his long-standing friend and co-star Peter Fonda says the ­former hellraiser has retired at the age of 79. Peter, who co-starred with Jack in 1969’s “Easy Rider” and has stayed good friends since, said, “I think he is ­basically retired. I don’t want to speak for him, but he has done a lot of work and he has done very well as a person financially.”
