Dennis Hopper says he is not match for close friend Jack Nicholson when it comes to dating beautiful women
Dennis Hopper claims he is no match for notorious ladies man Jack Nicholson.
The 73-year-old actor has revealed that in their youth Nicholson, 71, was more successful with women and would often steal girls from the 'Rebel Without a Cause' star.
Hopper said: "I would pull one, and then he'd pull them over to him!"
The pair have been close since meeting on the set of 1969 movie 'East Rider' and Hopper - who has been married five times - insists Nicholson is one of his best friends.
He said: "He's so great. He's a proper friend, if you call him then he calls back immediately."
Hopper also gained another important thing from 'Rebel Without a Cause' - acting lessons from his co-star the late James Dean.
He added: "As an actor, he totally changed the way I worked. I thought I was the best young actor in America, if not the world, when I met him. Then I realised I was nowhere near as good as him."
"He taught me some basic stuff. Like, 'If you're going to drink something in a film, drink it. If you're going to smoke something, smoke it. Just do it as you would off set.' That was such good advice."
