Anjelica Huston

It's certainly what I like best about getting older. You're not up for grabs for criticism anymore. You make a decision, it's made, it's fine, you don't have to go back and rework it. You don't have to apologize.

Anjelica Huston

I'm very fond of doing movies where men fight over me. I don't get to do enough.

Anjelica Huston

It would probably be very sensible to be in love with someone who was not in the arts and who wasn't so prone to ups and downs. When I think of people who aren't in the arts, I immediately think of politicians for some reason, and I would never want to be with a politician.

Anjelica Huston

One of the difficulties of being a writer must be that you create drama that you can't live out. That's one of the wonderful things about acting.

I have two new nephews and a new niece this year, so I have plenty of kids that I can spend time with.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

Some people had fathers who were bankers or farmers, my father made films, that's how I saw it. As for the movie stars, they were just around, some of them were friends, others weren't, it was all just a part of my everyday life.

Anjelica Huston

Age is not enviable in America. It's not applauded all that strongly. You have to take it all with a grain of salt.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I'm not all that big on rides. I sort of like bumper cars but I don't really go to Disneyland all that much unless if have nieces and nephews or people to take.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I was always reticent about taking offerings from my father, and I think it was maybe because I felt the caveat was that I had to give something back, and I didn't like that position. But I've never felt incumbent on anyone to kind of keep them lifted or to support them, necessarily. I do that by wish or by option.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I get irritated when people counsel me on what I should do with my life, or tell me I should get married, or tell me what I should do. I think people have their role models for happiness and it helps if others fit into that.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Anjelica Huston

The idea of being given things that you don't necessarily deserve was always a difficult one for me to negotiate, and so I really always felt that I had to prove myself. Being the daughter of a famous man I guess is more easy than being the daughter of a famous woman, but at the same time there was a sense of really, with me, of wanting to earn my own way.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Anjelica Huston

What I like to think, and perhaps it is an adolescent thought, is that anything can happen. As long as you think that anything can happen, it will. We're all allowed to have our dreams.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

If I were to have any sort of solid idea about which moments were God's manifestations, they would be those moments where one has practically nothing to do with what's going on. It's one of the best feelings in the world.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I like things pretty close around me. I like to know that my house is safe, that the people and animals I love are well and happy. I like to feel as peaceful as possible.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I am a person whose father had no religion but who went to the nuns for a couple of years. And I think I'm the same: On one hand, I pray; on the other hand, I don't believe. I am constantly between the two.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I do like the ocean wave, actually. I'm born under the sign of Cancer - the sign of the crab - so I like coastal areas and sunny beaches and such - although not the wide-open and deep seas.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Anjelica Huston

What you have to remember is that the great feelings come after the terrible ones.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Anjelica Huston

There have been times when I wanted children and other times I've been grateful not to have them. I am a mess if I have to say goodbye to my dog for longer than five days. I don't know how I would deal with kissing my children as I left for work. I know there are women who are able to do that. I don't know if I could.

Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking Program achieved for me a thing that I thought was not possible - to give up a thirty year smoking habit literally overnight. It was nothing short of a miracle.

Writing must certainly be one of the hardest professions - writing and painting.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I'm a collector - I collect everything. I can't throw things away. For some reason I think I'm going to need tiny wooden teddy bears with their arms hacked off.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

Being called a person, as such, indicates that one should only have one character and be true to it.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

Of course drugs were fun. And that's what's so stupid about anti-drug campaigns; they don't admit that. I can't say I feel particularly scarred or lessened by my experimentation with drugs. They've gotten a very bad name.

Anjelica Huston

People say, "Why is it that you love to act?" And you want to say, "Well, most of acting is sitting in your trailer, either bored or worried about the scene coming up." A lot of it is about things you don't really like, so it's a wonder why acting is such a huge draw, why everyone loves it so much.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I think all actors - they'll hate me for saying this - but we are babies. We like to be loved, and we'll do anything if we're loved.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Anjelica Huston

The terrible thing about acting is the stops and starts.

Oh, all kinds of lunacy happens in Ireland, all kinds of lunacy.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

My father was extremely loving to me and funny and wise and understanding, and at other times extremely demanding, critical, calculating, exacting. When you're a young woman, I think you want to please a lot, so maybe you accept more of the criticism than you would as an older person. But criticism can be very wounding. It certainly was to me.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I don't think it's necessarily healthy to go into relationships as a needy person. Better to go in with a full deck.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

By Anonym 13 Sep

By Anonym 15 Sep

Anjelica Huston

Where there is age there is evolution, where there is life there is growth.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

My biggest ambition is never to be bored. I'm not aggressive enough to strongly run after being an actress.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

At a certain point you stop looking at your features, at what you don't look like. You start looking at lines and signs of fatigue rather than at the shape of your mouth.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I like it when you read a script and there's the part that you show to the other characters and then there's the part that only the audience knows.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I think most actors like to be liked.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I loved being blonde. It's true, they have more fun, even when they're cannibalising their children.

About Hollywood. I feel like it’s a big ocean, full of bottom feeders, midlevel fish, the occasional shark, and some wonderful savvy whales, the elders, and the ones who guide you on your way. If you’re lucky enough, you get to be a dolphin and have your waves broken by the passage of these elders before you, but at the same time, you get an occasional shark bite in the tail and maybe one of the bottom feeders comes up and takes a little nibble. But I see myself as cresting a series of waves, dipping down, sometimes, lower than I’d like, but mainly kind of happily staying above. (smiles and takes a long drag of her cigarette) And, of course, I try to avoid the fishnets.

I had one nanny who made me sit in front of a bowl of porridge for three or four days running when I refused to eat it. I remember being very unhappy about that.

By Anonym 13 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

Anjelica Huston

I don't think people have ever cast me for anything too traditional or midwestern or housewifey.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Anjelica Huston

Anjelica Huston

It was great to work in Ireland because it's such a beautiful country, but it's not particularly easy to film in because the weather changes all the time.

Anjelica Huston

The nature of acting is that one is many characters and jumps from one skin to another as a way of life. Sometimes it's hard to know exactly what all of your characters think at the same time. Sometimes one of my characters overrules one of my other characters. I'm trying to get them all to harmonize. It's a hell of a job. It's like driving a coach.
