Anjelica Huston

Anjelica Huston (born July 8, 1951 in Santa Monica, California) is an American film and television actress who starred as Morticia Addams in The Addams Family (1991) and Addams Family Values (1993). She received Golden Globe Award nominations for the part in both movies.


Huston is the daughter of film director John Huston and granddaughter of actor Walter Huston; her mother is of Italian descent. She grew up mainly in Ireland and England. Two of the first movies she appeared in, Sinful Davey (1969) and A Walk with Love and Death (1969), were directed by her father even though he did not want her to be an actress. She also starred in The Dead (1987), which was her father's last film. She appeared in few films in the 1970s, choosing to try modeling instead.

Huston won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Prizzi's Honor (1985 and again directed by her father). She was nominated for Academy Award for Best Actress for The Grifters (1990). She was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in "Enemies, a Love Story" 1989. Huston received five Emmy Award nominations for her television work over the years.

Huston directed Bastard Out of Carolina (1996), Agnes Browne (1999), for which she also was the producer and the TV movie Riding the Bus with My Sister (2005).

Huston lived with Jack Nicholson from 1973 to 1989. She is married to the sculptor Robert Graham Jr. (1992 - present), has no children, and resides in an unusual dwelling in Venice, California. Huston refused to move to the Bohemian area unless Graham built them a fortress to live in. The result was a giant, windowless structure behind an opaque 40-foot fence.
