Star of The Shining and countless other award-winning films Jack Nicholson attended an Apollo Theater benefit in East Hampton on Saturday with his youngest son, Ray Nicholson. Nicholson is 77 while his son is 22, which is the same age Nicholson was when he got his break in the 1959 film The Cry Baby Killer, and onlookers couldn’t help noticing how the son was the spitting image of his famous father, down to the pointed eyebrows and devilish grin.
Ray is Nicholson’s son with Rebecca Broussard, 51, with whom he had two children. Nicholson and Broussard were in a relationship from 1989 to 1994. Their son has not only inherited his father’s good looks but his love for film as well. Ray had previously appeared in The Benchwarmers in 2006 but has since moved behind the scenes, unlike his celebrity father. Ray to date has two assistant director credits to his name, for Boots (2013) and A Reunion (2014).

Last weekend, the Nicholsons stayed with Jack’s friends, Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels and Tommy Barratta, owner of Marylou’s on West Ninth Street in New York. He attended the benefit with celebrities such as Paul McCartney, Senator John McCain, Sting and Bon Jovi. Page Six reported that Nicholson looked “fit and feisty” at the event, countering recent tabloid rumors that he has health problems.
Besides his children with Broussard, Lorraine and Ray, Nicholson has two other children. He has daughter Jennifer Nicholson, 50, with his ex-wife Sandra Knight, and Honey Hollman, 33, whom he had with Danish model Winnie Hollman. He has spoken about his role as a father, revealing, “I didn’t see enough of my eldest daughter because I was trying to make a career. I have a daughter, Lorraine, and a son, Raymond, with whom I was able to spend much more time.”
