Famous actor, Jack Nicholson, happens to be an awesome dad, at least that's what we've learned from he has said about his children and vice versa.

Jack Nicholson - A legendary actor

We doubt there's any movie-lover out there who hasn't heard of the famous Jack Nicholson. As a part of some of the biggest Hollywood hits like Chinatown, The Shining, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and A Few Good Men, this man has cemented himself as one of the most prolific actors out there.

Born in 1937, the 82-year-old has also taken on other Hollywood roles in his career such as directing, producing and screenwriting. Based on his biography, Jack has won three Academy Awards and has been nominated several times.

He has broken grounds and made history. And from what we can see, Jack Nicholson's children are the light of his life.

Jack Nicholson on fatherhood

The actor once opened up about his experiences as a dad during a 2008 interview with AARP Magazine.

He got candid about how he tried to be a role model for his children. He explained that his goal was to be inspirational and a good influence on them but not in such a way that he would be "overburdening them."

Jack's views on parenting where that it was up to his kids to discover who they were and he did all he could to foster a strong relationship between them and himself when the children were younger.

I always read to them, from childhood on; I think that’s a father’s responsibility. I took them to things I knew they might not love — opera, ballet.

Jack Nicholson's children

Let's take a look at what his kids are up to now

1. Jack Nicholson's daughter, Jennifer

56-year-old Jennifer Nicholson is one of Jack's children whom he welcomed with ex Sandra Knight. Unlike her dad, she chose a different career path. She has made a name for herself as a fashion designer but there have been some drawbacks.

In 2003, she revealed to ChicagoTribune that even though she loved her dad, being the daughter of someone famous was a challenge.

I like being Jack Nicholson's daughter and I'm proud of him, but people don't understand the pressures that come along with that.

2. Raymond, Jack Nicholson's son

Jack's 27-year-old son, Raymond 'Ray' Nicholson was born in 1992. His mom is Rebecca Broussard.

Jack and Ray appear to have a special father-son bond. In fact, the pair were recently spotted hanging out together at the Lakers game in Los Angeles in April 2019.

3. Lorraine

She's the daughter of Jack Nicholson and Rebecca Broussard. And like her dad, she's also an actress.

The 26-year-old has showcased her acting skills in a few films including Soul Surfer.

4. Honey Hollman

Born in 1981, Honey is the daughter of Jack and Winnie Hollman. She also happens to be an actress as well.

5. Caleb Goddard

Born in 1970, Caleb is the product of a fling between Jack Nicholson and Susan Anspach. Susan once told People that she and the actor had a brief relationship in 1970 but this didn't stop Jack from being a great dad to his son.

Susan told the publication, in 1996, that Jack once told her he accepted Caleb "totally" and even footed the bill for the young man's Georgetown University tuition.

49-year-old Caleb is now a writer and producer.

Jack's ex-wife praises his fatherhood

The actor didn't just leave a good impression on his children, but on his former partners as well.

In an interview with CloserWeekly, Jack's first wife Sandra Knight described the actor as a "loving, caring, giving person." She revealed that they had a beautiful marriage.

Will the famous actor give marriage another try? We can't say for sure. But he did tell Telegraph in 2015 that his reputation as a ladies' man might keep him single the rest of his life.

He explained that women had a hard time trusting him and didn't feel comfortable building a relationship with him.

Jack Nicholson may have been unlucky in love but one thing we can now say for sure is that his children consider him to be a great dad. Despite being a busy actor with a thriving career, he still made time for them. And today, they speak of him fondly.

Jack may be single but he sure has made an impact, both as an awesome father and a talented star. He deserves to be celebrated for both.
