Jack Nicholson Talks Death And Love

Posted: Updated:

Jack Nicholson's newest film is called 'How Do You Know' -- and he may be asking himself that.

Nicholson opened up in an extensive interview with the Daily Mail, speaking about the women in his life and his inability to find that last perfect relationship.

Having had five children with four women and long been with Anjelica Huston before he cheated on her, Nicholson is still searching for The One at 73.

"I've had everything a man could ask for, but I don't know if anyone could say I'm successful with affairs of the heart," Nicholson said. "I don't know why. I would love that one last real romance. But I'm not very realistic about it happening. What I can't deny is my yearning.

Given his age, Nicholson may never find that love -- as he gets up there in age, he starts thinking more and more about death, especially after losing long time friend Dennis Hopper last year.

"One of the toughest parts of ageing is losing your friends. At first it starts quietly, then pretty soon it's every month, and you can't help but think, 'When is that bell going to go off for me?'" Nicholson mused. "And on top of that you feel this constant loss. At this time of life, you feel just a sword's point from death. It's frightening - who wants to face God and the clear white light? I know I definitely don't. Yet."
