    Default Anjelica Huston

    Anjelica Huston is an American actress and occasional director. She's had roles in movies such as Prizzi's Honor, The Witches, The Grifters, The Addams Family (and its sequel), Choke, as well as working frequently in Wes Anderson's films (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou). Here she is talking about her directorial debut, Bastard Out of Carolina:



    What type do you think she is? These two interviews may provide clues... I think she's some sort of FJ, given quotes such as these:

    I think with Clark being an actor, he went more for the character in the piece, and for the humanistic moments. Which I think is a good thing, too, because it softened some of the harsher aspects of the material...which is not lovable, it's far from lovable. But I think, you know, there's a fine line between repulsive...and something else. And it shouldn't just be repulsive, it has to be thought-provoking, and it has to push the edges...but it can't just be horrible. It can't just be disgusting, even though there are, in fact, everything but bodily fluids in this movie. You don't want to send people howling from the theater, and on the other hand, you have to negotiate this very dangerous edge of what will make people run from the theater, and what will, in some way, attract them, and lure them, and hypnotize them.
    And remember that I've also already played the craziest mother, although I thought she was a great mother...Morticia Addams [laughs]. She was a wonderful mother to play, because everything is about the antithesis of what it should be. "Oh, you're looking so ill, so pale. How wonderful!!"
    I think much more for the patient is for the person who loves the patient, or the Victor Mancini side of the couple who takes it to heart, who can’t believe that he’s not recognized by his mother, the woman he loves and who loves him. There’s a wonderful quote that I’ll paraphrase, in Joan Didion’s book, about loss and her mother which is like, “Who will know me, now that my mother is dead? Who will recognize me? Who will ever know me in that way?” That’s, I think, the basis of the problem between the child observing the parent losing their way or the lover watching his lover drift.
    Your thoughts?

    I could see her as sx-last... She's got a pretty mellow disposition, almost clinical.

    i loved her with jack nicholson.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Yeah, it was between that and ISTJ, but I think she seems more like an INTJ (she doesn't seem as stiff and naturally stuffy as ISTJs.) ISTJ would be my second guess, though.

    ISTJ was actually my first guess, but I agree, it's between those 2 types. she sort of reminds me of a female Len Tsukimori (he's a character from La Corda D'oro who gives off a similar vibe). I am almost certain about 3w4 sp/sx though

    Funny how people seem to gather that she's a Te type... I initially thought she was a Fe user, with all the (kind of effusive) praise she gives people (like Chuck Palahniuk in the interviews I linked to). Then again, maybe that's just my F bias talking.
