Anjelica Huston is an American film actress from a preeminent Hollywood family. Her grandfather, Walter Huston, was a stage and screen star who won an Oscar for The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Her father, John Huston, won an Oscar for directing that film, and also directed Prizzi's Honor, where Anjelica won her Academy Award.

At 16, she was an extra in the 1967 James Bond spoof Casino Royale. Her first real acting on film was in her father's forgettable A Walk with Love and Death, in 1969. And her first appearance in a typical-Anjelica-Huston role was as "the woman of dark visage" in 1976's Swashbuckler. The essential Huston includes the aforementioned Bastard, Prizzi's Honor, Crimes and Misdemeanors, The Grifters, Addams Family Values, Ever After, and The Dead (her father's last film).

Her first film as a director was Bastard out of Carolina with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jena Malone, based on Dorothy Allison's chilling novel about child abuse. It was filmed for Ted Turner's TNT in 1996, but Turner blew a gasket and said TNT would not show the movie after he saw a rough cut. The film eventually aired on Showtime.

Huston possesses dual citizenship, Irish and American. She has made public statements in support of legalized medical marijuana. Huston has no children, and no regrets about it.
