Actor Jack Nicholson celebrated his 67th birthday with the help of a few Hollywood friends this week (ends23APR04) - including bad boys Sean Penn and Nick Nolte.

The OSCAR-winning legend showed he still has his youthful spirit whilst out celebrating his birthday on 21 April (04) in New York - as he hit the town with a throng of showbiz pals.

The night started as a 'boys' night' with Penn, JOHNNY CALVANI and his CARNAL KNOWLEDGE co-star Art Garfunkel enjoying the best table at swanky Greenwich village eatery DA SILVANO.

Later Naomi Watts and Catherine Keener joined Nicholson in time for the giant cake and a birthday serenade from Italian chef SILVANO MARCHETTO and his serving staff.

The celebrity-packed group then moved on to the MERCER HOTEL - where Nicholson hooked up with Sam Shepard, NICK NOLTE and Mark Ruffalo, reports
