Jack Nicholson Worked as a Side Order Cook Before Making it Big in Hollywood

November 5, 2012

Jack Nicholson wasn't always a Hollywood legend. In his early days of acting, Nicholson paid his rent by working as a side order cook. However, the actor admits his temper often got the best of him. 

"One day, a woman came in to ask for pancakes and my pancake came out about three inches thick. She said, 'What the hell is this?' I lost my temper, hit the pancake and said, 'Make your own damn pancakes!'" Nicholson recalls. "Anger has always been a problem and every once in a while I just have to let it out. I always regret it later."
