In 1989, Jack Nicholson appeared in a role that would come to be one of his best movies of all time ‘The Shining’. He portrayed the role of ‘The Joker’ in the movie ‘Batman’ which was released in 1989 and the film was a resounding success.

Favorite Quotes from Jack Nicholson

“There’s a period just before you start a movie when you start thinking, I don’t know what in the world I’m going to do. It’s free-floating anxiety. In my case, though, this is over by lunch the first day of shooting.” – Jack Nicholson 

“When I am cast in a movie where I feel that the woman’s part is more interesting, I usually start thinking about Spencer Tracy and Fred Astaire. They seem to be the clearest actors when working with women.” – Jack Nicholson

“My whole career strategy has been to build a base so that I could take the roles I want to play.” – Jack Nicholson

“I don’t want people to know what I’m actually like. It’s not good for an actor.” – Jack Nicholson 

“I sort of understood that when I first started: that you shouldn’t repeat a success. Very often you’re going to, and maybe the first time you do, it works. And you love it. But then you’re trapped.” – Jack Nicholson 


3 Life Lessons from Jack Nicholson Movies

Now that you know all about Jack Nicholson’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from him:


1. You Make a Difference Whether You Realize it or Not

In About Schmidt, Jack Nicholson plays an insurance actuary named Warren Schmidt who, upon retirement, can’t seem to find any personal significance in his life.

He spends the movie trying to repair some of his broken relationships with family members and while he appears unsuccessful, he ultimately finds discovers his satisfaction from an unlikely source.


2. Good Relationships Can Come Unexpectedly

Unlike Warren Schmidt, Jack Nicholson’s character (Melvin Udall) in As Good as It Gets doesn’t seem to be interested in other people at all. He is a successful author who suffers from OCD, mysophobia, and a general disdain for other people.

When an unlikely event ends up pairing Melvin with his artist neighbor and the waitress at his local café for a trip to Baltimore, he learns to make connections with people and show that he really cares for them.


3. Fight for Those Who Can’t Fight for Themselves

It’s important to remember that we have to stand up for those who can’t. We have to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves to make the world a better place.

  1. Mr Nicholson is a great actor and deserves every penny that he has earned. I’m sure he’s worked very hard all his life to get to where he has gotten today.

    And ala Kazan he’s a very rich man.

  3. Thought I should write this before he’s dead not after. I was up for a leading role opposite Jack. Spoke to him on the ph about Mustangs- Ford. He was extremely down to Earth, kind and easy to talk to. Hope your well. My agent got sick and things fell apart. ANYHOW VERY BEST TO A KIND PERSON.. GENO

  4. Just got through watching the movie Chinatown and he is the best actor,him and Costner on the screen. I can relate to his role in Chinatown because I have lived it in a few situations. I didn’t end up a millionaire But Mr. Nicholson deserves every penny love watching him.
