:wave: From Wikipedia

Anjelica Huston (born July 8, 1951) is an Academy Award-winning American actress and former fashion model. Among her roles, she 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 was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of film director John Huston and granddaughter of actor Walter Huston; her mother was an Italian dancer, prima ballerina Enrica Soma. Anjelica was raised mainly in Ireland and England. She attended Kylemore Abbey, a prestigious all-girl boarding school in Connemara, Ireland and also Holland Park School. 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 fashion modeling instead.

Huston has received five Emmy Award nominations for her television work over the years. She won a Golden Globe Award for Supporting Actress in a TV Program for Iron Jawed Angels. It was her first win, after eight nominations.

Huston directed Bastard Out of Carolina (1996), which depicts a young girl suffering from sexual abuse by her stepfather, Agnes Browne (1999) (for which she also was the producer) and the TV movie Riding the Bus with My Sister (2005).

In this century, she is a recurring cast member in Wes Anderson films, starting with The Royal Tenenbaums

Huston lived with Jack Nicholson from 1973 to 1989. She married sculptor Robert Graham Jr. in 1992, and resides in an unusual dwelling in Venice, Los Angeles, California. She refused to move to the bohemian area unless Graham built them a fortress in which to live. The result was a giant, windowless structure behind an opaque 40-foot fence.
