My favorite part of the interview was her description of Oprah's bitchiness towards her after Anjelica won the Oscar over her.Who knew Oprah was such a petty bad sport.An amazing interview overall.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered Commenterken s.

Finally someone speak the true about Oprah.Glad that Mrs.Huston the on to do it!!I really want her in a European Circle of Directors Juice Roles (Almoóvar,Sorrentino,Haneke,Verhoeven,etc)

We should predict Olivia Colman for this new role?if yes,supporting or leading?

May 2,2019 | Unregistered Commenterjon

That Anjelica Huston interview is everything.I loved her shading of 'The Bucket List' so much...


Question:
Is there any chance for a Yes - No - Maybe So for that trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog?(Even though it would that have to be renamed No - No - No for that purpose).

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMrW

In the interview Anjelica Huston teaches everyone who wants to learn,how to be sharp - with humor,class and minimally a good vocabulary.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterDoodie

I need a two hour documentary starring Anjelica Huston and The Turner.I would called it Tequila Shots with the Ladies.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

Anjelica could have walked away from that interview looking great if she hadn't handwaved away the accusations against Woody,Polanski,AND Talbot in one fell swoop.Embarrassing.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterDrew

Tambor*

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterDrew

You want her to answer what you want to read.That's not very mature and it's incredibly boring.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

My takeaway from that interview is that Anjelica Huston feels a kind of freedom we should all aspire to,and should do our best to give each other.And which is vanishing month by month.

She expressed views that I don't necessarily share (or share to the degree that she holds them) but nevertheless.Kudos to the interviewer for capturing a fascinating,complicated,unapologetic subject,exactly as she is.And not as the world would have her be.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterGrifter

Exactly!The Vulture interview is exactly the opposite of the Hollywod Reporter Roundtable where no one ever says anything interesting because they're all campaigning.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMarcel

Anjelica Huston is a true queen.I love the fact that she gives no fucks and doesn't pander to anyone or whatever social or political affiliation they have.She has that rare quality that is lacking these days.

Emma Thompson hosting SNL...yay but with musical guest the Jonas Brothers?BOO!!!!!!!!!They suck and I will guarantee you that their recent marriages aren't going to last long.

As for that trailer forSonic the Hedgehog....AW FUCK NO!!!!!Take that shit out of my spectrum.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered Commenterthevoid99

Okay I forgot that doing a candid and funny interview with Vulture automatically immunizes the rich and famous from all criticism.Next time an Oscar winner trots out a bad take hat trick I will scream YAAAS QUEEN until I crumble into dust and die.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterDrew

It has nothing to do with her being rich and famous.I'm poor and I think that Americans resurrecting the Polanski case every 5 years are pathetic.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMarcel

I feel quite disgusted with some of the things she said here.People on this site,man...

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMe34

thevoid99: I love the Sonic franchise and...notes: 1.Gangster's Paradise was comically bad as a choice.Even AMISH Paradise would have matched better.2.Jim Carrey doing a Mike Myers routine is...everything I never knew I never wanted.3.The teeth.Just...the TEETH.4.James Marsden and a CG animal in a car?Aaaaaah!Hop Flashbacks!5.Portal Ring.Even if Sonic CAN do that,shouldn't that fling them to some kind of Bizarro Realm?6.iPod Bots.Hi,the Boston Dynamics dog happened.Robotnik actually doing giant animal bots like Buzz Bombers and Caterkillers isn't necessarily unrealistic now?Emphasizes your villain having an identity/style?7.Fitbit joke.Sigh.Best joke of the trailer,and it's not even that good.8.Child in the bag joke.Ugh.Wrong,wrong,wrong,wrong!9.So,what's the odds that last shot is them desperately putting the post credits bit in the trailer?I'd want to say 2:1 or 1:1?

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

Every time I read the comments,I'm reminded why I don't waste me time anymore,even on this site.Always so negative.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip H.

I went to an event for the release of Anjelica Huston's memoir several years back,and she came across just as she does in this interview--interesting,candid,articulate,and unapologetically herself.I adore her as an actress and as a woman;she's very special,and I am sorry to learn she was in such a poor situation financially after her husband's death.

The film industry is full of virtue signaling phonies who really don't stand for anything--they simply back any cause or ideology that is trending at the time,while condemning those who have fallen out of favor to maintain their "brand."It's really refreshing to hear from someone who calls it like she sees it isn't concerned about a potential PR fallout.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMike M.

She is such a delight!And how beautiful does she look?Perhaps she stopped botox ..She looks more like herself which I adore.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJEM

a) I think the interview is fascinating and reveals an interesting layered persom

b) I think the answer "the times were different"is easily my least favourite answer to why historical "crimes"/attitudes/whatever were allowed to fester for so long.It's cheap and rejects critical thought.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterArkaan

The fabulous Angelica Huston gives amazing honest interview.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

In Vulture's last year interview,Kathleen Turner said "Certainly in terms of film,There is intense pressure to repeat successful characters.I'll give you an example,but you mustn't include her name.(Very famous Hollywood actress) has played the same role for 20 years.She even looks pretty much the same.She's probably one of the richest women out there,but I would shoot myself if I were that,only giving people what they expect."
Angelica said "Oh God,It's so easy.Quite honestly,I'm looking for movies that impress me in some way,that aren't apologitically humble or humiliating like,'Band of Cheerleaders gets back together for one last hurrah,' you know.And old-lady cheerleader movie.I don't like that kind of thing.If I'm going to be an old lady-and I'm sort of touching old lady these days-at least I want to be a special old lady.I don't want to be relegated to some has-been making a comeback.I hate comebacks."
I'm quite sure they talked about the same actress.I love These three.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJack for Streep

A version of "The View"with Anjelica,Kathleen Turner,Emma Thompson,and maybe the real Marsha would be worth watching every day.And would face new reasons to cancel it every day.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMarsha Mason

I like Emma Thompson,but she isn't sacrifice a Paul Rudd SNL episode worthy.

May 2,2019 | Unregistered CommenterTalentsexual

oooh,oprah lost the battleandthe war.touché,anjelica

May 3,2019 | Unregistered Commenterpar

Oprah Winfrey is arguably more famous and culturally significant than Anjelica Huston and is definitely more wealthy than a woman who was born into it.Oprah has a Jean Hersholt which is a humanitarian Oscar statuette and is a Kennedy Center Honoree and has the Congressional Medal of Freedom from President Obama.I don't think they have a true rivalry in any significant way except they were co-nominees during an award season.@par

Glad Huston won that Oscar because you know Kathy Bates in Misery is more important than Huston clenching it at the 63rd ceremony.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtful

Love Anjelica's gives no f**** attitude,but this idea that Oprah is mad at her for winning the Oscar is both laughable and delusional.

So glad Regina King is receiving the kind of perks that Black actresses are often denied.I hope one of her projects will reunite her with her 227 family.What a come full circle moment that will be...

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterNewMoonSon

I don't know,Oprah perpetually fancies herself an actress and movie star.This week she said she's stepping away from acting,lol,whatever that means."It doesn't feed me anymore."What a loss for us all!

I'm sure it would still feed her if she'd gotten an Oscar nomination for The Butler.Or if A Wrinkle in Time had made money.Or if she received a single major nomination for Henrietta Lacks.

The difference between them is that I don't think Anjelica Huston fancies herself a talk show host and business mogul.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJF

Jackie Weaver has something to say to Anjelica Huston and it's not pretty.Check Vanity Fair!

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

She's right about Poms.And I'll never see Oprah the same way again.

Philip H's comment makes me sad,but I understand.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

BTW,she's the worst best supporting actress Oscar winner ever.Oprah was robbed big time.I'd be mad too if I gave one of the best supporting performances of the decade and lose against such a poor performance (if you can call it that).

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMe34

Me34 - you're entitled to your opinions.Geez,who else would want them?

May 3,2019 | Unregistered Commenterken s.

I'm old enough to remember those Oscars clearly,亚博主页Winfrey was never considered a favorite to win that year.The race was thought to be between Margaret Avery and Huston.Seems odd to think Winfrey would have been upset when there wasn't much expectation for her to win.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterReady

Angelica Huston is pretty cool.I say thumbs up!

Winfrey had the Globe nod Avery didn't,so Margaret wasn't waiting in the wings.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtful

I can almost visualize a mid 90s cocktail party where Clint Eastwood might be privately evaluating Angelica for,possibly,The Bridges Of Madison County,then Oprah nudging between them to lobby for the Francesca role...

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterTOM

/3rtful,You didn't necessarily need a Golden Globe nomination to win an Oscar in those days.If anyone was going to beat Huston (who had a lot going for her in terms of narrative,industry connections,and a complete sweep of the major critics awards),it might have been rising star Meg Tilly for her co-lead,incredibly showy,Golden Globe-winning role in 'Agnes of God.' But I suspect Huston was way out front.

The Oscar I most wanted her to win was for 'The Grifters.' What a brilliant performance.An actress of Huston's skill level deserves way more opportunity to showcase her talent.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMike M.

Oh please Oprah is highly over rated except she knows how to make a buck

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

Ready & /3rtful -- I'm with Mike.I remember that year vaguely but from what I can recall (it was the first year I processed that things "might"get nominated before hand rather than hearing about the Oscar nominees and just taking it from there.But from that dim memory nobody else was remotely going to win besides Huston.Way way out front.And film legend directs his own daughter was a big big narrative that year.So much so that Prizzis Honor managed lots of nominations despite opening much earlier than any of the other films up for the big prize (barring Witness which opened really really early).I miss the days of 5 films where you might have one from Spring,one from Summer,one from fall,and two from Christmas.Now it's all so nov/dec focused.

May 3,2019 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

That Anjelica's interview is the best celeb piece I have read in awhile.Marvelously authentic.

May 3,2019 | Unregistered CommenterFadhil

I also loved Jacki Weaver's response to the POMS shade."She can go fuck herself."haha.Bless her.
