Will fans be able to handle the truth? According to Radar Online, an entertainment news site, Jack Nicholson, 76, will retire from acting.

According to Radar Online, "a well-placed Hollywood film insider" informed them of Jack's decision. The three-time Academy Award winner has not made a movie since 2010, and he cites memory issues as one of the reasons. According to the Radar Online source, Jack can no longer remember his lines as well as before.

Jack Nicholson's almost 60 year movie career saw many memorable roles including Gittes in "Chinatown," Jack Torrance in "The Shining," and The Joker in "Batman." Jack Nicholson picked up Academy Awards for his roles in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "As Good as It Gets," and "Terms of Endearment."

Despite his retirement, according to Radar Online, Jack will still embrace the public spotlight and not retire from public life, the source says.
