Too bad his famous fiery passion ruins his chances!
In the early days of Jack Nicholson's career, the actor was a short order cook between gigs.
But when a female client gave him some harsh criticism, Jack didn't take to kindly to that!
He describes the incident:
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!'…
Anger has always been a problem and every once in a while I just have to let it out. I always regret it later.
After a couple of hours I calm down and think, 'What way could I have solved that problem other than blowing up?'
I should have learned how to do that long ago and that would have made my life easier - with less apologizing.
Temper tantrums are never fun for anyone, Jack!
