London: Legendary lothario Jack Nicholson has admitted that it would be "undignified" for him to go on chatting up girls in public at his age.

The three-time Oscar winner, who slept with 2,000 women and had five children by four different partners, has finally decided he can no longer live the playboy lifestyle - as he did when he was younger.

"I can’t hit on a girl in public like I used to. I never thought words like ``undignified`` would come into my own reflections on myself but I can’t do it any more," the Sun quoted the 73-year-old as saying.

"I feel uncomfortable. I don’t think anybody cares what I do in these areas but it feels a little bit off to me," he said.

He does not mind being thought of as ladies` man, though even if it is no longer true.

"It’s good for business if people think I’m a womaniser. But a lot of what people think of me has to do with when I was younger.

I did sort of burn it full blast. But I don’t burn it at both ends any more. I can’t party as hard as in the past.

"I’m not going to pretend I haven’t been a rogue most of my life because I have and still would be if I had the energy for it," he added.
