As Morticia Addams

Anjelica Huston’s parents were director John Huston and ballerina Enrica ‘Riki’ Huston.  She is the third generation of Hustons to win an Academy Award (hers for Prizzi’s Honor).  She has a brother, a half-sister, and a half-brother, Danny Huston. She is the aunt of Jack Huston, a young actor in the Twilight series and Scorsese’s Bordwalk Empire.

The reason for Anjelica’s inclusion here is The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, where she is an amazingly perfect Morticia.  But she has many fantastic credits, including The Ice Pirates, two episodes of Faerie Tale Theatre, Mr. North (directed by brother Danny), The Witches, EverAfter, The Mists of Avalon, Blood Work, and several episodes of Medium. She was romantically involved with photographer Bob Richardson in her youth, then Ryan O’Neal and Jack Nicholson.  From 1992 until his death in 2008, she was married to sculptor Robert Graham Jr., who created the Joe Louis Memorial in Detroit.
