He’s a Hollywood legend, but at 76-years-old, Jack Nicholson may be forced into retiring. Sources reveal to Star that crippling memory loss could be behind the actor’s decision to bow out of the industry.

According to our insider, Jack’s quietly stopped making films, and doesn’t want people to make a big deal about his condition. However, his friends are still concerned about how nonchalant the Academy Award winner is acting about the situation. “For Jack to stop working at all is a huge red flag to his friends, who are very afraid,” our source says.

Jack hasn’t starred in a film since 2010’s How Do You Know, and has no current upcoming projects.
