“His spirit is gone”: a close friend of Jack Nicholson talks about the declining health of the actor

We all have in mind a role of Jack Nicholson that particularly marked us. Of the Joker in the Batman from Tim Burton to writer Jack Torrance in shining by Stanley Kubrick, Jack Nicholson’s career is punctuated with exceptional acting performances.

Unfortunately, for ten years now, the actor has been deserting the film sets. And for good reason, according to several of his relatives, he would suffer from dementia and would no longer be able to retain the texts of his roles.

In the columns of Radar Online (Source 1), a relative of the famous actor confides:physically he is fine, but his spirit is gone. It’s really sad to see such a talented actor, like Jack, leave like this.”.

The entourage of Jack Nicholson would also make the parallel with Marlon Brando, legendary actor who died at home in great loneliness, after an incredible career.

In contact with some members of his family, Jack Nicholson would not leave his home for some time now. His son and daughter would be at his bedside, according to the words of those close to Jack Nicholson.

The 85-year-old actor’s last public appearance dates back to October 19, 2021, when he went to a basketball game in Los Angeles with his son.

If we don’t know more about the actor’s state of health, it is possible that he is suffering from a form of dementia, which inevitably progresses. Recall that, according to the definition given by the WHOdementia refers to “a syndrome in which we observe impaired memory, reasoning, behavior, and ability to perform daily activities”.

France Alzheimer adds that proven progressive “dementia” is generally the subject ofpalliative and non-curative treatment:we try to reduce the impact of the disease on the patient and preserve their autonomy and quality of life as much as possible”.
