Jack Nicholson is still refusing movie offers 13 years after last role

Veteran actor Jack Nicholson is refusing to accept any movie offers 13 years after he appeared in How Do You Know.

It's get to a point where you just accept some actors are not going to be in any films anymore, and perhaps Jack Nicholson is one of them.

The 86-year-old last appeared in a project some 13 years ago now, as he featured in How Do You Know, a comedy starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.

How Do You Know was hardly Nicholson's high point, though his supporting role in the unsuccessful comedy didn't really diminish his towering career.

Some of his much-loved classics include The Departed, The Shining, Chinatown and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Despite not being part of a film project since 2010, Nicholson is still yet to formally announce his retirement from acting.

But as it has now been a whopping 13 years, many have just assumed he will be retiring for good.

Well, Nicholson's future in acting was addressed when his friend Lou Adler was interviewed in a podcast this week.

Speaking on the WTF With Marc Maron, the host was about to wrap up the the hour-plus long conversation when he popped a question to the record producer about Nicholson.

"A friend of mine wanted to put him in a movie," the podcast host quipped after asking how the actor is doing. "And he had a conversation with him.

"But Jack says, ‘I don’t want to do it.’ He goes, ‘You know what I did today? I sat under a tree and I read a book.’”

"That sounds like Jack," Adler jokingly chipped in.

He added: "He wants to be quiet. He wants to eat what he wants. He wants to live the life he wants."

To be honest, Nicholson has not addressed retirement much since his last film, though in 2013 he did hint more films may be on the way.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Nicholson addressed the reason as to why he is taking less film roles, admitting he is less driven to be 'out there any more'.

"The movie business is the greatest business, but I only want to do films that move people, films about emotions and people," the Oscar winner added.

While he may not have admitted to retiring from acting at the time, Nicholson did speak about his likely retirement from dating.

He said: "There were points in my life when I felt oddly irresistible to women. I’m not in that state now, which makes me sad."
