Anjelica Hutson

by Bob Richardson

in Ever After

for Walter Albini in 1973

with Jack Nicholson at the Oscars in 1976

At her beach house in Venice for Nowness

Portait by David Bailey

She was Jack Nicholson's lover, Helmut Newton's muse, and David Bailey's enchantress...but for me, aside from her brilliant acting career (my favourite role as Morticia in the Addams Family 1991) Anjelica Huston is a fiercely amazing woman. In the '70s, Huston was the ultimate it-girl, dashing from party to party with Nicholson; today, she is one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood, a subtle, wise, and breathtaking actress. Her father is director/actor John Huston and her mum is prima ballerina Enrica (Ricki) Soma. Endowed with her father's great height and personal boldness, and her mother's beauty and aristocratic nose, Huston certainly cuts an imposing figure, and brings great confidence and authority to her performances.
