The Addams Family Cast: Then and Now | Anjelica Huston, Christina Ricci, Christopher Lloyd, etc.
Huston is now 71 years old and has an extraordinary film and modeling career behind him, as well as a rather tragic family and personal life.
Huston rose to fame after reluctantly starring in her father’s famous director John Huston’s film Walking with love and death in 1969 at the age of 18.
She had a fractured relationship with her father, who often lived and worked abroad, and eventually broke up with her lead ballerina mother, Enrica Soma. During their marriage, both John and Soma had children with other spouses.
Tragedy struck Anjelica and her two siblings in 1969 when her mother died in a car crash in Dijon, France.
Having just released his first film, Huston is forced to grapple with excruciating pain and flees to New York.
She took on a number of roles in the 70s and 80s, which brought her into the public eye, including in swordsman, The Last Boss and The postman always rings twice.
Interestingly, Huston also played a supporting role in the 1975 film Once flew over the cuckoo’s neststarring her recurring boyfriend, Jack Nicholson.
The couple had a tumultuous relationship from 1973 to 1990, with Nicholson’s playboy lifestyle leading to their end.
It wasn’t until she played Morticia Addams that Huston met her true love, Robert Graham.
Graham is a Mexican-American sculptor, whom the actress met after a friend founded them.
As the story goes, Huston’s friend is said to have lied to both sides, telling Anjelica that Robert had a crush on her and vice versa.
In 1991, Graham proposed to Huston when they visited her childhood home in Ireland. In May 1992, they held an all-star wedding. Anjelica wore a classic white suit to walk down the aisle and wore a beautiful wide-brimmed floppy hat.
Huston always wanted to have children, but after breaking up with Nicholson, she discovered that she had endometriosis and was likely unable to conceive.
After their wedding, Huston and Graham tried many fertility treatments, but sadly, nothing worked.
A few years later, Graham built the couple a home in Venice, California. But after a few happy years, tragedy struck again.
In 2007, Graham fell ill with what was later diagnosed as granulomatosis with polyangiitis – a rare condition that causes inflammation of the blood vessels.
Just six months later, when he died, Huston was completely devastated.
Huston has never been romantically involved, but has found solace in his career, doing the hit music TV show. break down. She also wrote two memoirs, Look at me and Recent Story: Growing up in Ireland, London and New York.
