Nicholson Visits Ground Zero
Heroes working at New York’s Ground Zero site got a surprise visit last Tuesday from JACK NICHOLSON. The legend arrived unannounced at the wreck of the WORLD TRADE CENTER to sign autographs and shake hands, and used his famous smile to get past various checkpoints. Rescue workers were shocked he wasn’t accompanied by a bodyguard. One eyewitness says, “They found four bodies that day, so morale was pretty low. But energy levels rose a thousand percent when they saw who it was.” The OSCAR-winner was taken up to the roof of a building overlooking the site for a better view of the devastation. The onlooker adds, “The sun was setting, and it was beautiful everywhere you looked except right in front of you. It’s horrendous.”
Nicholson, 64, who was provided with a hard hat, was briefly allowed to operate one of the cranes being used to dig out the layers of debris. He left after three hours, shaken by the experience, but glad he’d been able to show his support.
