Did You Know: Jack Nicholson

Did you know that Jack Nicholson was brought up believing that his grandparents were his parents and that his mother was his sister?

Nicholson only discovered that his “parents” were actually his grandparents and his sister was in fact his mother in 1974, after a journalist for TIME magazine who was doing a feature on Nicholson informed him of the fact.

By this time, both his mother and grandmother had died. Nicholson has stated he does not know who his biological father is, saying “Only Ethel and June knew and they never told anybody”, and has chosen not to have a DNA test or to pursue the matter.
