Jack Nicholson celebrated what would have been Elizabeth Taylor's 82nd birthday on Wednesday night (26.02.14).

The 76-year-old actor was among the celebrities at the glamorous gathering held at the Cassandra's Violet Grey store in Melrose Place in Beverly Hills, which was hosted by Paramount boss Brad Grey's wife Cassandra, to celebrate the legendary actress.

The Hollywood icon - renowned for his prowess with the ladies - was in his element at the bash as he was nestled between model Erin Wasson and the granddaughter of artist Picasso, Diana Widmaier-Picasso, while locking eyes with Eva Mendes across the table.

According to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column, Jack appeared to be enjoying himself at the intimate bash as he exchanged life stories with guests, before bursting out in laughter.

Pharrell Williams, Chanel Iman, Anjelica Huston, Carole Radziwill and Alice Eve also paid their respects by attending the birthday bash for the screen star, who died of congestive heart failure in 2011, aged 79, after suffering many years of ill health.

Meanwhile, other stars took to their Twitter accounts to mark the special day.

Kim Kardashian wrote: ''Happy Birthday to the legendary Elizabeth Taylor! Forever grateful for your last interview we did together! I will never forget it! #MyInspiration #MyIdol (sic)''.
