Tessa Gourin is 27 years old and points out that she legally exists! Jack Nicholson never publicly acknowledged it.

And the winner of three Oscars, too, Tessa almost never mentions. One of the rare moments when Gourin referred to her father is when she criticized him on her social networks because he has not been present in her life all these years. “There is no such thing as an illegitimate child, there is only an illegitimate parent” - she said in one of her stories on Instagram.

Her mother is New York real estate agent Jennine Gourin. Nicholson allegedly had an affair with her in 1994 but left when he learned that Jennine, then 20, was pregnant with Tessa. “Although we are not together, I can't wait to have a baby” - Jennine pointed out at the time. And for those who left various negative comments on her account, the daughter of the famous actor had a clear message :

"USA, the year 2022... the year when we are offended by literally everything under the sun, obviously! That is why it is AMAZING to me that someone uses the term 'illegal' to describe someone nowadays. I just pinched myself and it turned out that… I LEGALLY exist"- she said.

Gourin is, by the way, an ambitious actress. So far, she has several projects behind her. She is perhaps best known for her starring role in "Stranger's Arms" from 2018. According to IMDb, she has roles in two more films, "Stage Play" from 2021 and "The Crusaders" from 2022.

"Tessa looks very much like Jack Nicholson, and there is a lot of documented evidence that he is her father," said Dennis McDougall, who wrote a biography of Nicholson in 2008. One of the greatest womanizers in Hollywood, Jack Nicholson, who recently celebrated his 85th birthday, was involved in big scandals, strange love relationships, but also various stories related to alcohol and drug use.

In the sixties of the last century, he started experimenting with LSD, which he liked because he "saw God" after the first intake. Shortly afterward, he started experimenting with cocaine, mescaline, and marijuana, and over time he became a chronic addict. Despite that, in his 60-year-long career, he was dedicated to acting, so he won three Oscars, and was nominated as many as 12 times.
