Anjelica Huston ACTOR




ANJELICA HUSTON BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Anjelica Huston was born on July 8th, 1951 in Santa Monica, California born to parents, Enrica Soma, a ballerina and John Huston, a reknown actor and director.  She spent most of her child years raised in England and Ireland.  Her parents split up, but never formally divorced when she was ten years old but she continued to live in Ireland and was raised by both parents.  Due to her father's profession, Huston was also given the chance to appear on screen with her dad in a number of movies. 
 
Sadly, when Huston was eighteen years old, her mother was killed in a car accident at the age of thirty nine and Huston decided to leave Europe and relocate to Los Angeles and begin focusing on her career.  When she first arrived, she found work as a model and soon afterwards was getting cast in a number of films in small roles.  She began enrolling herself in acting training, and made a living as a model.
 
It did not take took long for the beautiful actress to attract some attention when she was cast in her first significant film role, "The Postman Always Rings Twice" (1981).  She then worked in just a couple small roles again until she was cast by her father in the film, "Prizzi's Honor" (1985), for which she won an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actress for her performance.  Her grandfather, Walter Huston was also in the film and he too won an Oscar for his performance, making this the first time in history that a grandparent and their grandchild were both awarded a Oscar at the same time for the same film. 
 
Finally, she was really noticed in Hollywood and film roles from there on out came very easily to her with appearances on such features as, "Gardens of Stone" (1987), "The Griffters" (1990), "The Addams Family" (1991), "Addams Family Values" (1993), "The Royal Tenebaums" (2001), "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" (2004), "Horrid Henry: The Movie" (2011) and soon to air on television the new series (2012).
 
Along with her career as an actress it in her blood to work on the other side of the industry as a director.  She has followed in her father's footsteps and has worked on such projects as, "Bastard Out of Carolina" (1996), "Agnes Brown" (1999) and "Riding the Bus with My Sister" (2005).
 
Anjelica Huston has married only once to Robert Graham in 1992 and they lived in Los Angeles, California.  He recently passed on December 27th, 2008 and she remains living in Venice, California.  
 
Huston was also involved in trying to secure the release of Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi in 2007.  She also feels very strongly about apes not being used in film, television or commercials.  In 2010, Huston was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contribution to the Motion Picture Industry.  She also owns a ranch in Three Rivers, California that she will often spend time at.
