If I were to simply here the name, Anjelica Huston — like many of us ILOSM Old Schoolers  — I’d be like, ‘Come again now…Anjeli- WHO?’ And that’s understandable, given that I haven’t seen most of the actress’s work. However, when it comes to the name, “Morticia Addams,” many of us instantly recognize Huston for her role as the matriarch of the classic monster fam’ in the film adaptation of The Addams Family.

That film brought back childhood memories for many…and apparently, Huston has some memories to rehash of her own. The only difference is that her recounted memories have nothin’ to do with The Addams Family, but everything to do with Oprah Winfrey, Eddie Murphy, and other celebs.

And uh…let’s just say the “Morticia Addams” actress didn’t necessarily have the fondest memories to share about her encounters with the aforementioned legends.

In a 2019 interview with Vulture, Anjelica Huston sounded off about how Oprah Winfrey was allegedly jealous of her; and how Eddie Murphy supposedly acted like a ‘diva’ toward her…but there’s more…

Huston Accuses Oprah Of Oscar Award Shade
According to Huston, Oprah has had issues with her since 1986, when Huston took home the “Best Supporting Actress” Oscar Award for her Prizzi’s Honor role. Oprah was nominated for the same category that year for her “Miss Sophia” role in The Color Purple…which she should have won in my opinion, but I digress.

Anyways, Angelica says Oprah has never gotten over that loss to her…and she also claims that as a result, Oprah shades the hell outta her every chance she gets. One of the “repercussions” Huston says Oprah gave her, is “She never had me on her show, ever. She won’t talk to me.”

Huston continued:

“The only encounter I’ve had with Oprah was when I was at a party for the Academy Awards, a private residence. I was talking to Clint Eastwood, and she literally came between us with her back to me. So all of the sudden I was confronted with the back of Oprah’s head.”

When the interviewer asked Huston if she thinks the reason behind Oprah’s shade stems from her 1986 Oscar loss, Huston replied:

“Well, nobody else would dislike me so much as to literally, physically come in between the person I was talking with that way. But I admire Oprah. God knows, she’s made some big steps.”

What’s Her Issues With Eddie Murphy?
As far as Anjelica Huston’s prob’ with comedian/actor, Eddie Murphy, it’s centered around time…literally.

While co-starring with Eddie on the film, Daddy Day Care, in which Eddie was the lead character, Huston recalled hating that he required the cast to arrive to set 15 minutes before he did. And what she disliked even more, was Eddie’s reported response to her request to alter that rule:

“You’d be waiting for over 15 minutes in a California summer, so you’re not appetizing by the time you get on-camera,” said Huston. “Maybe he didn’t recognize that factor. So I requested to at least know when he was traveling to set. His reply, through the grapevine, was ‘Ladies first.’ Frankly, a lot of male movie stars behave in an offhand manner, like they’re just more important than you are.”

Wow! Gotta love the Old School memories.
