“I spent quite a lot of time in front of the bathroom mirror. Nearby, there was a stack of books. My favorites were ‘The Death of Manolete’ and the cartoons of Charles Addams. I would pretend to be Morticia Addams. I was drawn to her. I used to pull my eyes back and see how I’d look with slanted eyelids.” (Anjelica Huston)
