The Advice Jack Nicholson Gave Michael Keaton After Playing Batman That Wouldn’t Fly Today

We hear a lot about Hollywood being a cutthroat place and people struggling to make it out there. But every once in a while we’ll hear stories about big stars passing on their knowledge and taking another actor under their wing. Denzel Washington is one major actor who has spread his knowledge along the way, helping stars like the iconic Tom Hanks. Comparably, apparently Michael Keaton got some solid advice from Jack Nicholson when they worked together on "Batman" back in the ‘80s, but it wouldn’t fly these days. Something pretty special happens when you get a bunch of acting icons together to have a conversation, and The Hollywood Reporter did just that when they put Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Brian Cox, and three other popular actors in a room for their Drama Actor Emmy Roundtable. The stars chat about a number of things, but when the topic of fatherhood and taking a break from acting to be a present father comes up, the conversation shifts to some advice that Keaton received from Jack Nicholson back in the day that doesn’t quite translate to the film industry these days.
