There’s too much to love in this interview with actor Jack Nicholson, so just pop on over to the Guardian and read the entire thing, where he seems to let his guard down and talk honestly about getting old, the vanity of plastic surgery, heartbreak and his youthful hard-partying ways.
But, I’ll still give you a little tease:
‘If men are honest, everything they do and everywhere they go is for a chance to see women. There were points in my life where I felt oddly irresistible to women. I’m not in that state now and that makes me sad. But I also believe that a lot of the improvements in my character have come through ageing and the diminishing of powers. It’s all a balancing act; you just have to get used to the ride.’
“But contrary to opinion, however sated I got, I always looked after myself. I’ve woken up in trees, I’ve woken up almost hanging off cliffs, but I’ve always known how to sort myself out.”
