Jack NicholsonJack's looking for one last romance

In a interview with Closer, the semi retired actor said, “I would love that one last romance but I'm not very realistic about it happening. What I can't deny is my yearning.”

"I'm definitely still wild at heart, but I've struck biogravity,” he added. "I can't hit on women in public anymore. I didn't decide this; it just doesn't feel right at my age.” Nicholson also said he’d had “everything a man could ask for” but added that no one could say he was successful with affairs of the heart.

"I don't think relationships are fixed things. People are necessarily complex and confused beings. We don't always do the right thing, say the right thing and behave the way we always want to behave,” he mused.

The actor also revealed that his daily routine now consists of waking at 1pm and then having a glass of milk to soothe his stomach. He also plays golf, takes a nap or goes next door to the house his friend Marlon Brando used to own in Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, Jack now owns the house as part of his art collection.

Speaking about his reputation as a womaniser Jack said, "No woman has ever recognised what I say as being legitimate – they don't trust me. They think of my reputation – Jack the Jumper – so I'm damned by what women think.”

A source also told the magazine that Jack was afraid of dying alone in his mansion and that his children have been wanting him to sell it. “He's afraid of dying alone in that house' referring to his mansion that his children want him to sell. They've been encouraging him to downsize and move into a more manageable place in Beverly Hills. But he loves his old place in the Hollywood Hills,” they said.

Nicholson’s longest relationship was with Addams Family actress Angelica Houston, whom he romanced from 1973 until 1989. The relationship finally ended when Nicholson revealed actress Rebecca Broussard was pregnant with his child.

The actor said of his break up with Houston, "I was annihilated emotionally – that was probably the toughest period of my life. I'm childish and I did make a mistake".
