Sex Secrets of Jack Nicholson

September 20, 2006 6:16 PM ET

Rolling Stone Contributing Editor Erik Hedegaard got to sit on Jack Nicholson's toilet and gaze into Marlon Brando's yard during his interview with Nicholson for the current issue. For this and many other reasons discussed in further detail in the story (on stands Friday; it's the one with Jack's sparkling mug on the cover) our writer may never be the same.

• Jack calls the hours between two and four in the morning his "ass-scratching hours"
• Jack claims never to have bought a condom, but explains, "if I needed a porn picture or something like that, my staff normally does that kind of shopping for me."
• Jack can't remember the word "monogamous," presumably from lack of use in ... life
• Jack estimates that, in terms of age of sexual partners, he's "covered the territory from twenty-one to sixty-one" in the last year

Also in the issue: Contributing Editor Jenny Eliscu hangs with pop hermit Ray LaMontagne, we ponder the actual meaning behind the lyrics to Fergie's "London Bridge," and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. wonders: "Will the Next Election Be Hacked?"

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
