According to Radar Online, the three-time Academy Award winner, who has not acted in any movie since 2010's 'How Do You Know', has quietly quit acting "without fanfare," Stuff.co.nz reported.
The US publication's source explained that Nicholson, at 76, has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him.
Meanwhile, another report has claimed that 'The Bucket List' star is actively reading scripts and is looking forward towards a new project.
