Jack Nicholson may be the last “classic Hollywood” actor alive, having appeared in films since the early 1950’s. The man is a legend, and no one can argue with the fact that he’s incredibly talented.
Although Jack-O has enjoyed great success in Hollywood, there’s one major thing that sets him apart from his peers: he thinks abortion is wrong in 100% of cases… and he isn’t afraid to say it.
Nicholson’s mother gave birth to him in 1937 when she was just 17-years-old. The actor was raised by his grandparents, who he thought were his parents until he was almost 40-years-old. He learned the truth after his birth mother, June Francis, died of cancer.
Here is a picture of his mother:
Nicholson told the Rolling Stone:
“I’m very contra my constituency in terms of abortion because I’m positively against it. I don’t have the right to any other view. My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my life.”
His willingness to speak up for his views on this issue should be commended. It’s not easy going against the grain in Hollywood, especially since it’s one of the most liberal towns in America. Speaking out for conservative values has cost other actors opportunities and made them feel ostracized.
