Anjelica Huston's Quotes

  • There were many times when my father [John Huston] and I didn't agree, but we always became close again because I tended not to stand up to him for long. I seem to have been drawn to dominating men, like my father and Jack [Jack Nicholson].
  • Age is not enviable in America. It's not applauded all that strongly. You have to take it all with a grain of salt.
  • I have a very full life and I am very happy with where I am now. I don't want to change anything. I once wanted to have children and it was not my choice not to have children but it hasn't broken my heart that I haven't. I think unless you're truly, wholeheartedly prepared to make a full-time commitment, you have to really think about it. I certainly wouldn't adopt children just because everybody in show business seems to be doing it.
  • I like to dance. I probably would have been a dancer. I love music, it's good for the soul and dancing is good for people. I dance on my own, I go to classes, I have that sort of energy. I need to dance. People only need to dance to make them feel happy.What do I think of the Yankees? I'm sorry, I don't follow football.
  • I can't help feeling the world is on this terrible roller coaster where nobody can get it up since the atom bomb.
