An Evening With Anjelica Huston
In Conversation with Mitch Glazer

  • This event has passed.

An Evening with Anjelica Huston discussing her memoir, Watch Me, with Mitch Glazer.

Academy Award-winning actress and director Anjelica Huston has received honors from the National Society of Film Critics; the Independent Spirits Awards; and the Golden Globe Awards, as well as multiple Oscar, BAFTA, and Emmy awards or nominations. Huston most recently starred on the hit TV show Smash and is the author of the memoirs A Story Lately Told and Watch Me.

Anjelica Huston was 29 years old and trying to create a place for herself as an actress in Hollywood when director Tony Richardson said to her: ‘Poor little you. So much talent and so little to show for it. You’re never going to do anything with your life.’ ”Perhaps you’re right,’ I answered. Inside I was thinking, Watch me.”

In A Story Lately Told, Anjelica Huston described her enchanted childhood in Ireland and her glamorous but troubled late teens in London. That memoir of her early years ended when Anjelica stepped into Hollywood. In Watch Me, Huston tells of falling in love with Jack Nicholson and her adventurous, turbulent, high-profile, spirited seventeen-year relationship with him and his intoxicating circle of friends. She writes about learning the art and craft of acting, about her Academy Award-winning portrayal of Maerose Prizzi in Prizzi’s Honor, about her roles as Morticia Addams in the Addams Family films, Etheline Tenenbaum in The Royal Tenenbaums and Lilly Dillon in The Grifters, and about her collaborations with many great directors, including Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Bob Rafelson, Francis Ford Coppola, and Stephen Frears. She movingly and beautifully writes about the death of her father, the legendary director John Huston, and her marriage to sculptor Robert Graham. She is candid, mischievous, warm, passionate, funny, and a superb storyteller.
