Jack Nicholson's daugher Lorraine has detailed a childhood encounter with Marlon Brando.

Speaking to Vanity Fair about growing up around Hollywood, the 33-year-old actor and director recalled a touching moment with The Godfather legend.

Misplacing a journal, it was later returned by Brando along with a note which read: “Dear Lorraine, you left this in my driveway, love, the fat man next door.”

The younger Nicholson also joked about her parents throwing a party in the hospital on the day she was born: “I believe my parents had a full-blown party in the room at Cedars-Sinai because adults are constantly coming up to me saying, ‘I was there the day you were born.’”

Nicholson and Brando starred together in Western The Missouri Breaks and became great friends, later living next door to each other on Mulholland Drive.

Following Brando's death in 2004, Nicholson bought his friend's house for $6.1 million with the purpose to have it demolished after it had fallen into disrepair.

The 86-year-old Nicholson is now retired from acting, having last appeared on-screen in 2010 James L Brooks comedy How Do You Know alongside Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd.
