Jack Nicholson Plans Sky Burial

Jack Nicholson is considering being picked to death by vultures when he dies.

The 72-year-old actor has become fascinated with the traditional sky burials carried out by some Native Americans which involve the deceased's body being hung from a tree or wooden scaffold and being left for scavengers.

He told German TV channel Tele 5: "I've had several ideas. Once I thought it would be nice to be buried under a large statue that is at least ten metres high. Then I liked the nature of the Indians who haul their bodies up into the trees so that they are eaten by the birds."

Although Nicholson is undecided about the fate of his remains, one thing he is certain about is he does not want to be laid to rest in a coffin.

He said: "I will probably end up in a crematorium as I'm too claustrophobic for a coffin."

Even though he's been thinking about his funeral, Nicholson insists he isn't scared of death and feels as though he has achieved everything he wanted to in his life.

The Oscar winner - who starred in 'The Bucket List' with Morgan Freeman, about two terminally ill patients who escape from a cancer ward to fulfil their remaining life ambitions - said: "I remember a wonderful conversation I once had with my fellow actor John Gielgud. He said he had made a schedule with things he would like to do before he dies... travel the entire world, learn how to cook, but he found that nothing was as appealing as acting. I agreed with him."

Native Americans would have sky burials because they believe after death the souls of the dead lingered in the air and watched over the tribe until it was time for their soul to move on to the afterlife.

By raising the bodies up high the belief was the soul could exit its' mortal constraints faster.

"You Talkin' To Me?": Our Ten Favorite Unscripted Movie Moments 4180684 News

Sometimes the best moments in life are those which are unplanned or unexpected and it seems this is also true in the movies. As it happens some of favorite movie scenes didn't exactly turn out as they were scripted, instead the actors had a moment of inspiration on set leading to some memorable movie magic. Here’s 10 of our favourite unscripted and improvised screen moments.

GoodfellasRay Liotta, Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci in Goodfellas

Goodfellas

Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta were given free reign by Scorsese in their famous restaurant scene. Pesci based the entire exchange on a real life encounter he had with a gangster, where he made the mistake of telling him he was funny. All the dialogue was improvised and none of the other actors knew what was going to happen, making their reactions extra authentic.

The Shining

There’s no doubt that axe wielding Jack Nicholson chopping through a bathroom door in The Shinning is one of cinema’s most iconic scenes. But would it be so well remembered if it wasn't for Nicholson exclaiming Ed McMahon’s famous ‘Tonight Show’ catchphrase, “Here’s Johnny”? Maybe not, but rather than this being part of Kubrick’s original script, this line was actually an improvisation by Nicholson.

The Dark Knight

Sometimes the most simple touches to a character are the most effective, as Heath Ledger proved more than once during his performance as the Joker. Once such moment, which was entirely improvised on Ledger’s part, was the infamous slow clap delivered from his jail cell. The improv was perfect for the character, creepy and very unsettling.

Zoolander

"Why male models?”, asks Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander, when David Duchovny is explaining the role of the fashion industry in political assignations. The question was so potent that even after Duchovny delivered the answer, Stiller asked again. The real reason behind Stiller’s repeat question was simply that he had forgotten his next line so he decided to repeat his last one. Duchovny ad-libbed with "Are you kidding? I just told you like a minute ago.” making one of the movie’s funniest exchanges.

Indiana JonesIndy's Raiders of the Lost Ark fight once looked very different

Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark

It turns out that the one thing Indiana Jones can’t defeat is food poisoning. Ok this one might be more Harrison than Indy but it led to a last minute script change that created an iconic scene. Originally when Indy ran into the swordsman dressed in black the two were meant to have a long fight. But when Ford found himself struck down with a bout of food poisoning, he wasn't feeling up to too much action and the scene was changed. Thus Indy and his revolver made short work of the sword wielding villain.

Next: Jaws, Mars Attacks and The Empire Strikes Back go unscripted

Taxi Driver

The script for Travis Bickle’s infamous mirror scene simply read,"Travis talks to himself in the mirror”, the rest was up to DeNiro. During filming, DeNiro dreamt up the infamous line, “You talking to me?” and thus a movie catchphrase was born.

Taxi Driver DeNiro improvised Taxi Driver's famous mirror scene

Mars Attacks

Did you think the Mars Attacks script contained a whole alien language? Well actually it contained no dialogue for the martians whatsoever. Instead it was up to actor Frank Welker to create his own alien language.

Jaws

Roy Scheider’s reaction to the sheer size of the great white shark has got to be one of cinema’s most memorable lines. But “You're going to need a bigger boat,” wasn't in the original Jaws script, that was one Scheider made up on the spot.

Dr Strangelove

Peter Sellers improvised much of the dialogue in Dr Strangelove, where he took on the roles of three different characters. One unexpected moment was when the wheelchair-bound ex-Nazi Dr Strangelove, as if by magic rose from his chair and began to walk at the end of the film. Exclaiming "Mein Führer! I can walk!”, this comic moment wasn't in the script, but simply came after Sellers’ forgot’ his character wasn't able to walk.

Star Wars :The Empire Strikes Back

When you tell someone you love them the last response you probably want is an “I know”, but sadly for Princess Leia that’s all she got from Han Solo. The script actually had Han respond with the much more romantic, “I love you too”, but Harrison Ford didn't feel this fitted with Solo’s character so George Lucas allowed him to respond as he saw fit. Ford decided Hans was the kind of man to say “I know”, rather than get into anything too emotional.

Jennifer Lawrence Freaks Out After Reporter Spoils 'Homeland': "I Feel Like My Heart Just Fell Out" [Video] 4034957 News

Jennifer Lawrence may be one of the nicest actresses in Hollywood but just watch what happens when you ruin the shocking ending of her favourite television programme. Whilst being interviewed on the SAG Awards red carpet, the Oscar-winning actress spotted her favourite Homeland cast member, Damian Lewis, who was being interviewed not far away.

After having one of her characteristic Jack Nicholson-star struck episodes, Lawrence soon attracted the attention of Lewis, who plays the CIA drama's Nicholas Brody alongside Claire Danes. He moved over and gave the blushing actress a big hug. "Your show is amazing," she gushed, adding "my ears are so red, aren't they?" in embarrassment. "Not as red as my hair," the ginger-haired English actor joked in response.

The Access Hollywood reporter, Shaun Robinson, was clearly loving the cross-interview scene playing out before the cameras but for some reason decided to ruin it all by dropping a bomb into the American Hustle actress' joy. "You know they killed him off," she said matter-of-factly. "They killed him off!" yelled Damian's interviewer, Laura Saltman, before Jennifer's casually added "Yeah, they killed him off on the show."

Damian Lewis

Lewis was the first to react, shouting exasperatedly "Don't tell her; it's a spoiler!" whilst watching the colour drained from Lawrence's face as she stood dumb-founded. Despite the reporters' attempts to laugh the incident off and pretend they'd both been having a joke, Jennifer didn't look like she was having fun anymore. "I can't process this right now, not in front of the cameras," she said, as Lewis joked "They've been doing this all day to everyone."

It wasn't clear whether Jennifer's anguish was deadly serious or just for the cameras. "I can't believe you said that [...] I haven't watched the third season [...] I can't believe you did that," she said. "I don't even know what to say," a shocked Lawrence said, hands on hips whilst the mortified reporter practically dissolved into the red carpet. "I'm so horrible," screeched Robinson. Luckily, by this point, the actress was laughing, saying "I gotta get it together."

"Please don't be mad at me," pleaded Robinson. "I'm past mad, it's this weird other emotion [...] I feel like my heart just fell out," explained Jennifer, giggling "You are a monster." Sure, it's a serious case of 'first world problems' but doesn't it just suck when someone spoils your favourite show?

Anjelica Huston Slashed Wrists With Razor Blades in Chelsea Hotel 3962629 News

The revered actress Anjelica Huston has detailed how she slashed her wrists in desperation after spending days arguing with her then lover, the photographer Bob Richardson.

In the first instalment of her two-part memoirs, The Addams Family star speaks of her troubled romance with the much older Richardson - the father of fashion photographer Terry Richardson.

Huston began dating the snapper when she was 18 and he was 42 and Richardson struggled with mental health issues and would spend days in deep depression. In the new book, Huston confesses that during one four-day depression, she cut her own wrists in a bid to gain attention.

In A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York, Huston writes, "I never felt so fragile or vulnerable as when Bob became demonic and flew into a rage, or worse, when afterward he retreated into his shell,"

"One morning, four days into one of these ordeals, I walked into the bathroom at the Chelsea (hotel in New York) and, in desperation, drew a razor blade across my left wrist. I ran back into the bedroom, blood spurting from the vein, crying to him: 'Will this make you love me?"

Elsewhere in the memoir, Huston documents her 17-year relationship with Jack Nicholson, and claims she was wooed by Marlon Brando after being invited to his house in Ireland. "I went up to the Big House one morning and found a tanned, even-featured man in a maroon velour sweatshirt standing on the upstairs landing, talking to Dad, who introduced me to him," she writes, "Marlon smiled and his lips curled. [He] gave me a tortoise shell ring from Tahiti, inlaid with silver and asked me if I'd like to visit him there someday."

Anjelica Huston's memoir, A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London and New York, was released on Tuesday (September 19, 2013).

'Doctor Sleep' Released: 5 Of The Weirdest 'The Shining' Conspiracies 3879719 News

Fans of Stephen King will be excited to learn that he has finally penned a follow-up to his 1977 horror novel, The Shining. Entitled Doctor Sleep, the new book will return to the characters of The Shining and will focus on Dan Torrance, now a middle-aged man.

Fleeing his father's legacy, Dan eventually settles into working in a nursing home, providing comfort to the patients with his mental abilities. Dan becomes "Doctor Sleep" with the aid of a cat who can foresee the future, and he must save a 12 year-old girl from an evil travelling cult.

Viewed as one of the greatest horror movies of all time, Stanley Kubrick's 1980 psychological thriller still manages to chill viewers today, despite being nominated for a pair of Razzies at the time. However, a fair few conspiracies have emerged concerning the hidden purpose of and messages within the film. Some interesting, some creepily weird, and some laughable; here are five of our faves:

1) The Number 42

Someone noticed that the film has an unusual number of references to the number 42 hidden within the sets: 42 cars in the hotel's carpark, 42 on one of Danny's shirts and on the license plate of the rental car. Plus, If you multiply the numerals of Room 237 (2 x 3 x 7), you get 42. During the film, Wendy and Danny watch The Summer of '42 on television. Apparently, 42 references the year 1942, when the Nazis put their "Final Solution" into place, so it's suspected that there's a Holocaust link within the film.

The theory is supported (tenuously) further by Jack's German typewriter with the brand "Adler" on it which means "Eagle" in German: a potential reference to the Nazi emblem which is also seen on one of Jack's yellow T shirts.

2) Hell/The Devil

There are plenty of theories pertaining to the idea that The Shining is an allegorical reference to hell. When Jack Torrance signs his employment contract, it's taken to be a Faustian pact with the devil. It was also noticed (by God knows who) that Jack's weird pose at the end of the film is eerily similar to the tarot card for The Devil. We're not talking about the terrifying frozen shot, we mean the "Overlook Hotel July 10th Ball" vintage photograph. Take a look...creepy.

3) It's All Jack's Dream

Bit of a cop-out this one, but would explain all the surreal happenings of the movie. Sometimes rooms move around, sometimes windows show the wrong view, ghosts and visions appear and nothing seems to make sense. Could the events be purely the result of a drunk and writers-blocked Jack?

The Shining & SJP? The Most Terrifying Connection Yet...

4) The CIA's Mind Control Metaphor

This year's The Shining conspiracy documentary, Room 237, focusses on an out of place ski poster that appears in one of the creepy, identical girls shots. The movie looks at a popular theory that the skier is actually a minotaur, which would match-up with the maze-like hotel and shots of Jack looking like he's about to charge.

However, another theory states that the word "monarch" that appears on the poster is a subtle reference to the US governement's purported 'behavioural engineering' experimentation project called MKUltra which supposedly aimed to break down minds with LSD. It could be perceived that the hotel is a metaphor for the CIA and Jack's creepy visions and spiralling madness is him losing his mind.

5) The Moon Landings

This one might just be our favourite: one conspiracy theory intertwined with another. Apparently, Kubrick was hired by NASA to help film a fake moon landing and The Shining is the director's way of making amends. Lots of 'Tang' can be observed in the pantry, which is the fruit drink powder used in space. When Jack starts typing "All work and no play..." on his typewriter, "All" looks like "A11" at first, i.e. Apollo 11.

Furthermore, Room 237 is said to be a reference to the Earth's distance from the Moon: 237,000 miles. The creepy sisters? They represent NASA's Gemini programme. Danny? He wears an Apollo 11 sweater. Spooked yet?

What Would Jack Nicholson Say To The Wild Theories?

There are so many more but we've picked these as the cream of the crop. A river of blood figure, the "twins" not actually being twins, the condemnation of the genocide of the Native Americans, the criticism of the US' abandonment of the gold standard. Someone's certainly got time to 'redrum'...

There are so many more but we've picked these as the cream of the crop. A river of blood figure, the "twins" not actually being twins, the condemnation of the genocide of the Native Americans, the criticism of the US' abandonment of the gold standard. Someone's certainly got time to 'redrum'...

Stephen King Will Follow-Up 'The Shining' Story In New Book, 'Doctor Sleep' 3874542 News

Stephen King has a new book coming out, but with his latest release the literary champion has promised something a little extra as he revisits one of his most famous works: The Shining. His new book, Doctor Sleep, will pick up one year after the faithful events that took place in the Overlook Hotel, and follows central character Danny Torrence in the years leading up to and entering manhood.

Ahead of the release of his newest novel, King spoke with the BBC's Will Gompertz about why he chose to revisit the Torrence family, and why it took so long for him to return to the story (The Shining was first published in 1977). He also went on to explain how he found Jack Torrence, who is played by Jack Nicholson in Stanley Kubrick's timeless adaptation of the book, is one of his most auto-biographical characters, although admitted he does feel a connection with Danny.

"I was curious about what would happen to him, because he's a real child of a dysfunctional family," King said in the interview. "In some ways I think his father, Jack Torrence was the most autobiographical character i'd done, because at the time I wrote the book, I was drinking a lot... I saw him as this heroic character that was battling his demons on his own, the way that strong American men are supposed to."

The topic of conversation soon turned to the Kubrick adaption from 1980, when King revealed that whilst many consider the film to be a masterpiece, he by no means shares the same view. Stating that he found the film version too "cold" to enjoy, he continued, "I think one of the things that people relate to in my books is that there's a warmth," he continued. "There's something reaching out and saying to the reader 'I want you to be a part of this,' and in Kubrick's version of The Shining I thought it was very cold. Looking at these people like they're ants in an ant farm."

Doctor Sleep will be available to buy in paper and in digital formats on 24 September.

Relentless Billy Connolly Won't Let Recent Medical Setbacks Stop Him 3872457 News

Despite the seemingly crippling twin concerns of being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and undergoing surgery for prostate cancer, Scottish comedian and national treasure Billy Connolly has vowed to keep on working, in what can only be described as the most determined move. Ever.

Billy ConnollyBIlly Connolly is staying positive.

A spokeswoman for the 70-year old comedian and actor said: “Billy Connolly recently underwent minor surgery in America after being diagnosed with the very early stages of prostate cancer. The operation was a total success, and Billy is fully recovered. In addition, Billy has been assessed as having the initial symptoms of Parkinson's disease, for which he is receiving the appropriate treatment.” (The Independent).

This might put someone on the back foot; perhaps stop working and enjoy the finer things in life, but clearly – for Connolly – working is the finer thing, and he’s decided to keep on doing what he does best: making people laugh.

“Billy has been assured by experts that the findings will in no way inhibit or affect his ability to work, and he will start filming a TV series in the near future, as well as undertaking an extensive theatrical tour of New Zealand in the new year.”

Billy Connolly BaftasSomething tells us this won't be BIlly Connolly's last Baftas.

He’s following in the footsteps of Michael J. Fox, who didn’t let his diagnosis of Parkinson’s stop him creating new material. He used his affliction on Curb Your Enthusiasm to great effect, combining with an ever-paranoid Larry David to devastating comic effect.

Connolly has previous admitted that he’s started to forget his lines – something that was rumored to stop Jack Nicholson career, forcing him to retire, but that was all hash. These old school talents don’t know when they’re beaten. Speaking about it, Connolly said: “This is f*****g terrifying. I feel like I’m going out of my mind.” We look forward to Connolly’s new work and wish him all the best.

Jack Nicholson Will Continue 'Shining' On The Big Screen! 3850822 News

Jack Nicholson is thankfully not considering plans to retire from acting just yet, despite previous reports that he is struggling to remember lines due to increasing memory loss.

The One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest star may not have been seen in a movie since 2010 when he starred in James L. Brooks romcom How Do You Know opposite Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson, but it has been confirmed that, at the grand age of 76, he's nowhere near done with performing yet.

NBC anchor Maria Shriver has categorically revealed to E! News that the star in fact has no problems with his memory whatsoever and is still reading various scripts and preparing to get his next project underway. 

The rumors that we'd seen the last of the Oscar winning movie legend came about when RadarOnline revealed that a 'well-placed Hollywood film insider' told them, "Jack has - without fanfare - retired...There is a simple reason behind his decision - it's memory loss. Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him," said the source.

Well, quite frankly, we're thrilled he's got a good few more years left in him after more than 50 years in the Hollywood industry with a triple Oscar win and some landmark features such as Stanley Kubrick's The Shining adaptation and Tim Burton's Batman.

Cher's 40th Birthday Turned Sour After Jack Nicholson Snub 3850799 News

Pop superstar Cher's joy at turning 40 was dealt a crushing blow when Jack Nicholson insisted she wasn't sexy enough to star in The Witches Of Eastwick.

The Believe hitmaker reveals she was thrilled to be celebrating her milestone birthday back in 1986, when she hit New York for a wild night out with pals.

However, her glee soon turned sour when she received a call from director George Miller the next morning, as she was told leading man Nicholson didn't want her cast as one of his bewitched lovers in the 1987 dark comedy.

When asked what period she would return to if she could time travel, Cher tells U.K. morning show Daybreak, "I would go to the night of my 40th birthday. I was sitting with my friends and we were in a club that we all used to go to in New York and I was thinking 'Wow you know I just dodged age, I just dodged death, I'm 40 years old and I look great and I'm just having a great time'.

"Except in the morning time the man that directed The Witches of Eastwick called me and said, 'You can't be in the movie because Jack Nicholson doesn't think you're sexy.'"

Despite the apparent snub, the singer went on to star in the movie anyway, alongside Easy Rider star Nicholson and fellow screen sirens Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Jack Nicholson Retires? Remembering The Biggest Shock in Oscars History 3850706 News

It was fun, when Adrien Brody somehow won the Oscar for Best Actor in 2003. He jumped up and down, he danced around, he kissed Halle Berry. But somewhere in that auditorium, Jack Nicholson was wondering how he could possibly have been beaten.

In fairness, it was a pretty strong year for the leading actor category, which comprised of Brody for Roman Polanski's The Pianist, Nicholas Cage for Spike Jonze's Adaptation, Michael Caine for The Quiet American, the all-conquering Daniel Day-Lewis for Gangs of New York and Nichoson, for Alexander Payne's About Schmidt.

The Hollywood legend gave one of the best performances of his career as Warren Schmidt, a retiring insurance actuary who settles into a dormant life. His unfulfilling marriage to Helen, and the fact his daughter is marrying a man entirely unworthy of her (in Schmidt's eyes) only adds to his problems. 

"Nicholson ... produces the most understated -- and one of the most powerful -- performances of his career," said Desson Thompson of the Washington Post.

"Alexander Payne's poignant serio comedy is a sharply observed character study, featuring Jack Nicholson in a towering performance as an ordinary American embarking late in life on a journey of self-discovery," wrote Emanuel Levy over at Screendaily.

Everyone had Nicholson down to win Best Actor. Everyone. Perhaps the bookmakers favored him too heavily, given he would have tied Katherine Hepburn as the actor with the most Oscars, though he was favored nonetheless. 

However, the audience at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood gasped as Brody - who played a Polish Jew hiding from the Nazis in The Pianist - was named the winner. Sure, they were happy for him - and gave a standing ovation - but this was a major shock. Nicholson himself reacted with a sort of "oooooooooofff" though was seen applauding enthusiastically as Brody made his way on-stage.

Since the 75th Annual Academy Awards, Nicholson has turned in a handful of fine performances,  particularly in Anger Management and The Department, though his motivation has clearly waned. Here's a man who's won three Oscars and is considered amongst the finest talents to ever grace the screen. 

Reports in the U.S this week suggests Jack has now chosen to retire because of his constant memory loss, preventing him from learning new scripts. A Hollywood insider told RadarOnline that "Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him" and that "His memory isn't what it used to be". 

The source also reported that the academy award winner wanted to bow out quietly without any official announcement, "Jack has - without fanfare - retired".

Sounds about right to us.

Jack Nicholson To Retire From Acting Due To Memory Loss 3850186 News

Jack Nicholson will no longer be appearing on the big screen as the movie legend is set to retire from acting for good, a report from Radar Online has revealed. With more that half a century worth of work the triple Oscar winner has quietly retreated from the movie industry for good, due mostly to his failing memory and certain health concerns related to his old age.

Jack has quietly walked away from the movie industry to enjoy his retirement

Having shied away from any roles since 2010's How Do You Know, it has been revealed that his retreat from acting is down to his decision to call time on his profession and enjoy his retirement. A Hollywood insider told Radar, “Jack has — without fanfare — retired,” adding, "There is a simple reason behind his decision — it’s memory loss. Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him. His memory isn’t what it used to be.”

Although there has been no word from the acting legend himself about his supposed career move, his absence from Hollywood movie sets of late has been a telling sign that his career in front of the camera is coming to an end. He was recently approached to play the lead in the upcoming film Nebraska, but ultimately told producers that he had no interest in appearing on film any time soon. He may not be acting anymore, but that doesn't mean he will become a hermit and go into hiding though, which is great news because it could spell more moments like this run in with Jennifer Lawrence at the 2013 Oscars.

With a career that spans back to his lead role in 1958's The Cry Baby Killer, Nicholson went on to become one of the most decorated and celebrated actors of all time. He won three Oscars during his career; as Best Actor for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and again for As Good as It Gets and as Best Supporting Actor for Terms of Endearment, and has appeared in countless other films that have endeared him to millions, most notably The Shining and Batman. The source added, “He’s not retiring from public life, at all. He just doesn’t want a tribute. He’s happy to tacitly join the retirees club like Sean Connery.”
