I got little jobs here and there, and I also studied with a fantastic acting teacher called Peggy Feury, who kinda gave me back my confidenceInterview of the Week: Angelica Huston Jan 17, 2002
It was difficult because when I was living with Jack, the phone rang for Jack. And if you are an aspiring actor and you're living with a much more famous one, that can be a bit -- even though I was a woman -- it can still be hard. You can feel a bit defeated by it, but I don't think that it was from any direct instigation by Jack that I shouldn't work. Just the opposite really, although maybe he may have preferred that I not want to be an actress. ... At the same time I think he tried to be helpful to me. He gave me a small part in 'Postman Always Rings Twice.' And he wanted me to test for Mike Nichols' 'The Fortune,' which I refused to doInterview of the Week: Angelica Huston Jan 17, 2002
Anjelica Huston ( /ˈhjuːstən/; born July 8, 1951) is an American actress. Huston became the third generation of her family to win an Academy Award, for her performance in 1985's Prizzi's Honor, joining her father, director John Huston, and grandfather, actor Walter Huston. She later was nominated in 1989 and 1990 for her acting in Enemies, a Love Story and The Grifters respectively. Among her roles, she starred as Morticia Addams in The Addams Family (1991) and Addams Family Values (1993), receiving Golden Globe nominations for both. More recently, she is known for her frequent collaborations with director Wes Anderson.
Anjelica Huston was born in Santa Monica, California, and is the daughter of director and actor John Huston and Italian–American prima ballerina Enrica 'Ricki' (née Soma), from New York. Huston spent most of her childhood in Ireland and England. She grew up in Saint Clerns House near Craughwell, County Galway, Eire. In 1969, she began taking a few small roles in her father's movies. In that same year, her mother, who was 39 years old, died in a car accident, and Huston relocated to the US, where she modeled for several years. While she modelled, she worked with photographers such as Richard Avedon and Bob Richardson. On the photoshoots with Avedon, her hair was often done by Ara Gallant.
Huston has an older brother Tony, a younger maternal half-sister named Allegra, whom she called "Legs", and a younger paternal half-brother Danny. She is the aunt of "Boardwalk Empire" actor Jack Huston.
