My Conversation With Anjelica Huston

Tonight on PBS, I sit down with Academy Award-winning actress and director Anjelica Huston. When she won an Oscar for her performance in 1985's Prizzi's Honor, Huston continued her family's extraordinary film legacy, which began with her grandfather, Walter Huston, and her father, John Huston. She's had memorable turns in film and on TV, most recently starring in the musical drama television series Smash.

Huston spent most of her childhood abroad before relocating to the U.S., where she modeled for several years. Given her unique upbringing, she has many stories to tell, some of which she shares in the first volume of her fascinating memoir, A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York.

In the clip below, Huston looks back on her relationship with her father and shares her thoughts about the role of obedience in relationships between men and women.
