In her new book Watch Me, Huston tells the story of falling in love with Jack Nicholson and her adventurous, turbulent, high-profile, spirited 17-year relationship with him and his intoxicating circle of friends. She writes about learning the art and craft of acting, her rise to stardom, her work with the many of greatest directors in Hollywood, including Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Bob Rafelson, Francis Ford Coppola and Stephen Frears; about her Academy Award-winning portrayal of Maerose Prizzi in Prizzi’s Honor; about her roles as Morticia Addams in the Addams Family films, Etheline Tenenbaum in The Royal Tenenbaums and Lilly Dillon in The Grifters; and she movingly and beautifully writes about the death of her father, the legendary director John Huston, and her marriage to sculptor Robert Graham. She shares all in this talk with Joy Behar. Recorded November 12, 2014 at 92nd Street Y.
