(Newser) – Notorious ladykiller Jack Nicholson is ready for a new romance, though he admits he remains, at 70, "a fool for love." "Ask any old friend of mine, they'll say, 'Jack's pretty smart, but in this area the man is beyond the pale. Don't ask him anything about love. Or if you ask him, don’t listen,'" he told AARP The Magazine.

Nicholson says he's after a woman his age or younger. "In fact, every year I like to cover a broad spectrum," he said. But over the years, his courtship display has changed. “I can't hit on a girl in public like I used to,” he lamented. He’s not alone, he added: everyone his age says they want “that one last big romance.”
