’I can’t hit on girls in public like I used to’

If Jack Nicholson applied for a job as an ageing lothario he’d have an irresistable CV: the three-time Oscar winner has had five children by four different partners and has reportedly slept with 2,000 women. And then there’s that smile. What woman could resist it?

But Hollywood’s favourite ladies’ man has decided to spare womankind by hanging up his, um, sword, admitting that it would be ’undignified’ for him to carry on cavorting with young women in the public eye.

He said: ’I can't hit on a girl in public like I used to. I never thought words like 'undignified' would come into my own reflections on myself but I can't do it any more. I feel uncomfortable. I don't think anybody cares what I do in these areas but it feels a little bit off to me.’

Not that the star minds his reputation as a womaniser – even if it is no longer true.

He added: ‘It's good for business if people think I'm a womaniser. But a lot of what people think of me has to do with when I was younger. I did sort of burn it full blast. But I don't burn it at both ends any more. I can't party as hard as in the past.’

‘I'm not going to pretend I haven't been a rogue most of my life because I have and still would be if I had the energy for it.’

No regrets then.
