Nicholson, 73, won Oscars for his roles in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975), "Terms of Endearment" (1983) and "As Good as It Gets" (1997) during a career that also has included playing lawyer George Hanson in "Easy Rider" (1969) and maniacal villain Jack Torrance in "The Shining" (1980).
A spokesperson for Nicholson did not respond to requests for comment. Public records show he bought the Malibu retreat in 1977 and owns multiple properties in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, including an estate in Beverly Hills.
Rodrigo Iglesias and Richard Hilton of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, are the listing agents, according the MLS.
