Nick Nolte is doing great

July 18th, 2007 // 60 Comments

has photos of Nick Nolte at Kauai Airport Monday night passed out on the terminal floor. According to fellow passengers, Nick was passing in and out of consciousness for more than two hours after their flight was delayed due to engine problems.

According to the source, Nolte was still extremely friendly despite his groggy state — chatting with fans and allowing passengers to snap photos, however, he wasn’t entirely functional. “At one point we helped him put a dollar in the vending machine.”

This would be sad if it was anybody except Nick Nolte. It might actually be a step up for him. Compared to his normal routine of digging through dumpsters and offering sexual favors for booze money, this is like attending some fancy ball.


  1. Who else here thought this was Jack Nicholson before reading the headline?

    for 66, dude knows how to party. Go out with a bang dude, not a whimper.

    God thats so pathetic, how the mighty fall (well OK not sure he was ever mighty)

    I loved him in the 3 Fugitives. Hilarious movie for the time.


    i remember taking beaver traquilizers with gary, but that was only the beginning he went on to lick frogs , snort furiture polish and eat magic mushrooms . i saw gary later that evening sniffing peruvian flake cocaine off the breasts of a pregnant cambodian and telling her he wanted to use her breast milk to make a white russian…… the man is my hero

    I saw him in the SavOn drug store in Malibu a few years ago. It was right after he had gotten out of rehab, and he looked healthy. These pictures don’t look anything like the guy I saw. Wow.

    Does the guy not have a manager or publicist? Jesus…..

    Maybe he’s doing research for Down and Out in Beverly Hills 2?

    Look at those two people behind him in the first photo. They look so thrilled to be in a photo with Ned Beatty.

    #24 – Ned Beatty. Hilarious.
    #22 – So you’re saying that the first “Down and Out in Beverly Hills” wasn’t acting, just Nick being Nick?

    Gary Busey vs. Nick Nolte in a real life deathmatch. First one to make their liver explode wins.

  11. gossipmonger

    So sad.. he used to be so handsome, now… well, now there are no words to describe that…

  12. Sauron

    What’s wrong with Nick Nolte?It seems he really doesn’t care.Sometimes human beings become on the outside what they’re on the inside.

  13. NSFW–Not So Fuck Worthy!

  14. CantSayNo

    Nick Nolte and Lemmy Killmeister from Motorhead… separated at birth?

  15. Lexoka

    I love that guy! Sure, he’s weird, but that’s part of why he’s so great.

  16. Bitt

    The Deep, North Dallas Forty, 48 Hours………he was mighty, so the mighty has fallen. Even losers are laughing at him now.

  17. Mdiz

    i feel bad for him, obviously his life isnt doing to weel
    jeez, loks like hes having a roughh go
    give him some sympathy!

    Maybe being rich and famous is dangerous. The man is a genius and no one came to make sure he is okay? He’s old after all. I wouldn’t want to live out there. Fun to read about how the mutants live and die.


    cocaine is one helluva drug…………

    What is he holding?
    Pink cat eye glasses?
    Sparkly brass knuckles?

    It’s the People Magazine “Sexiest Man Alive” curse. How else do you explain Travolta’s elephantitis of the head, Tom LTC Cruise being possessed by Xenu, and Pierce Brosnan’s cancer of the career?

  23. I like Nick Nolte
    and I
    have a feeling that
    he’ll be
    the next to OD on
    pillz and
    alcohol or coke….
    Hez lookin
    pretty bad theze dayz.

  24. Funsome

    What’s wrong with a celeb acting normal? Who hasn’t passed out in the airport after a flight delay? C’mon…been to Vegas anyone?!?! Honestly it’s nice to see one of them who doesn’t give a shit, and in a good way.

  25. Veggi is stupid

    It’s not just one bad night he’s had the guy is obviously a serious alcoholic. He looks just so sick but I suppose its too late to get help.

  26. Coco

    oh dear oh dear. someone give him a hug.

  27. woodhorse

    He’s already jaundiced. That’s not funny. #20 was funny.

  28. jrzmommy

    Well, Nick Nolte came to boogie!!

  29. Tessa

    @25 “Gary Busey vs. Nick Nolte in a real life deathmatch. First one to make their liver explode wins.” LMFAO!

    As if the mental giant who wrote this is so above it all. Please. God this site sucks anymore. And whatever hack writes for it totally steals stories–verbatim–from, The Scoop, TMZ… name it.

  39. nick nolte is the motherfuckin man. remember cape fear? he beat DeNiro’s ass.

    we were with Nick at the airport in Kauai and he had not been drinking. the flight was delayed for two hours, so we were there for 3 hours, and he had spent the day on a hot and muggy movie set. the ‘disheveled look’ is for his character in the Ben Stiller movie he is co-starring in. during the 3 hours we were there, the only thing he had to drink was water which he bought at the airport. there were lots of people crashed out on the floor of the terminal waiting for the delayed red-eye flight to have its failed hydraulic pump replaced. the person who posted this should feel ashamed of herself (I actually think I know who did it – she was taking pictures of him with a long lens just like paparrazi). people should leave him alone and appreciate the body of work he has done as a respected actor!

  41. I love Nick Nolte….he iz zo
    kool…bet hez fun to pary
    with…love ya, Nick??

  42. farty_mcshitface
