Anjelica Huston is suggesting that there is some tension between her and Oprah Winfrey – and it’s all because she won the 1985 Oscar for her work in Prizzi’s Honor over Oprah‘s nomination that same year for The Color Purple.
“She never had me on her show, ever. She won’t talk to me,” Anjelica told New York Magazine.
Anjelica 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.”
The reporter then asked, “Do you think it’s fair to say it’s because you beat her?”
She responded, “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.”
