  1. Jack Nicholson

Throughout Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film “The Shining,” Nicholson’s character Jack Torrance wore a burgundy corduroy jacket. Kubrick’s former assistant and longtime friend Emilio D’Alessandro is giving the actor’s fans the chance to own a piece of the film’s history including the jacket via Italian auction house Aste Bolaffi.

From 1970 to 2003, Nicholson received 12 Academy Award nominations, winning three. His most recent film role is Charles Madison in the 2010 romantic comedy-drama “How Do You Know.”
