85-Year-Old Jack Nicholson Is Reportedly Experiencing Failing Health Due To Dementia


85-year-old Jack Nicholson is reportedly just spending time with his family amid his failing health. Jack has been diagnosed with dementia and a source says that he is doing okay, but “his mind is gone.”

The source said that he “doesn’t leave his house anymore” and his kids are taking care of him. Jack has had six children with five different women over the years. The source added, “Physically he is fine — but his mind is gone. It’s really sad to see such a super talented actor, like Jack, go out this way.”

Jack has not acted since 2010 and rarely makes any public statements. Back in 2020, he made a rare phone appearance to mourn NBA player Kobe Bryant’s death. Jack has always been a big basketball fan and was friends with Kobe.

He leads the way as the most nominated male actor in Academy Award history. He has had 100 nominations and 86 wins according to IMDb. It is truly sad to see one of the greats get older and experience health issues.
