In which I gush about Anjelica

the first time i saw Anjelica Huston in a film was when she played Morticia in Addams Family. i was probably around 9 or 10 years old and just fell completely in love with her. she was the first woman in whom i recognised what sex appeal was – in a cool, understated, knowing way that wasn’t garish. which i suppose is a pretty significant moment for a kid on the cusp of learning about all that stuff and would become my benchmark of what sex appeal should be. some say she has a femme fatale quality about her but personally i think the term gentlewoman applies perfectly to Anjelica (that might be the influence of all those Wes Anderson characters talking). a gentlewoman femme fatale… perhaps.
