Actress Anjelica Huston is struggling to come to terms with her advancing years, because she feels so much younger than 52.

The ADDAMS FAMILY actress turns 53 next month (JUL04) - and she admits she's bitter about the aging process.

Huston says, "I'm still catching up to how old I really am. I read the other day in print and it came as a huge surprise. I practically fell off the bed.

"I'm not sure that I'm delighted to be older. There is something about the energy of youth that is fantastic.

"I've just made a TV movie, IRON JAWED ANGELS, with those two wonderful young actresses Frances O'Connor and Hillary Swank. They were so fresh and pretty and bright and sharp, and I just wanted to slap them both."
