Giving hope to aging lotharios everywhere, Jack Nicholson was was seen shaking his stuff on a dancefloor late into the night with a much younger companion at a private party on the French Riviera over the weekend.

The legendary womaniser, who is now 72, has been dubbed "the Whaleman" by the press due to the increasing size of his stomach, but the last laugh was his as he managed to woo several young ladies at the private party held at the home of a Belgian socialite.

The following day the star was spotted having lunch with former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, before heading to the beach where he casually puffed away on a cigarette as he was cooling himself off in the Med.

The three-time Oscar winner who once revelled in his hellraising image is famous for his ability to attract the opposite sex. His past conquests have included Anjelica Huston and most recently Lara Flynn Boyle, who is more than three decades his junior.

The actor was once married to actress Sandra Knight, but the couple divorced after six years, after having a daughter, Jennifer. Nicholson also has two teenage children with American actress and model Rebecca Broussard – Lorraine, 19, and Raymond, 17.
