Maria Shriver Squashes All Those Jack Nicholson Retirement Rumors

at 5:00 pm | By

Is Jack Nicholson retiring from acting? Will that signature smirk never grace the big screen again? Could his final film really be that forgettable Reese Witherspoon-led romcon?

You want answers? Well, we want the truth. You can’t handle the truth!

Actually, we can — because this time the truth is Nicholson, 76, isn’t calling it a day on his acting career.

After RadarOnline stirred the Twitter pot Wednesday with a report that the three-time Oscar winner is retiring due to “memory loss,” NBC’s own Maria Shriver took it upon herself to clear the air.

Shriver told E! it’s all a bunch of hoo-ha: Nicholson is not suffering from any memory-loss related medical condition, nor is he planning to take his final bow from acting. In fact, a source even says that the legendary is actively reading scripts at the moment.

Jack-pot! (Sorry.)
