Why Anjelica Huston is Calling Out Oprah Winfrey and Eddie Murphy

*Anjelica Huston got real comfortable during a recent interview with Vulture, revealing longstanding grudges she has with industry titans Oprah Winfrey and Eddie Murphy, among others.

While she defended Jeffrey Tambor and Woody Allen, who have faced allegations of sexual misconduct, Huston claimed that Winfrey has a problem with her after she beat the TV mogul at the 1986 Oscars. Both were up for Best Supporting Actress: Huston for “Prizzi’s Honor” and Winfrey for “The Color Purple.”

Asked about the “repercussions” of beating Oprah, Huston told Vulture, “She never had me on her show, ever. She won’t talk to me.”

“The only encounter I’ve had with Oprah was when I was at a party for the Academy Awards, a private residence,” she continued. “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 asked if she specifically thought Winfrey acted like that because Huston beat her, she 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.”

Huston, who starred opposite Eddie Murphy in “Daddy Day Care,” also confirmed industry rumors that he asks everyone to be on set before he arrives.

“You’d be waiting for over 15 minutes in a California summer, so you’re not appetizing by the time you get on-camera,” she explained. “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.”
