Jack Nicholson Thought Cher Was 'Not Sexy Enough' And 'Too Old' To Star In 'The Witches of Eastwick' 🙄

By John Sundholm

Do not come for Cher unless she sends for you. 

During a stop on the world tour she is currently embarking on at the age of 72, because she is an indomitable goddess, Cher told the crowd at Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa an interesting anecdote about a certain pair of Hollywood luminaries with whom she once locked horns.

In the lead-up to the 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick, Cher was staring down the milestone of turning 40, a difficult rite of passage for any person, but especially so for a woman in Hollywood. But a wonderful birthday party had left her excited for her new decade. 

"I went to sleep, dreaming these fabulous thoughts of being 40 and it was good," she said. "And I was going to get all these movies and I was just so happy."
