Anjelica Huston - Anjelica Huston Finds Filming Cathartic

Anjelica Huston liked appearing in '50/50' as it allowed her to ''legally cry''.

The actress took time out from her career following the death of her husband Robert Graham from a rare blood disease in 2008, and she admits she was glad to work on the comedy movie - about life and death and cancer - because she could get tearful.

She told Radio Times magazine: ''It was extremely cathartic. Every day I could legally cry, which was important to me. I was living it the way I lived it. My work has always reflected my life.''

Following his death Anjelica - who is also known for her relationship with Jack Nicholson - left Los Angeles and she thinks it helped her begin to get over her grief.

She added: ''It takes me away from the pain I was going through in the last few years, with death and being in a house that I knew at some point I would have to move away from.

''Change is sometimes very painful. A new person emerges from the chrysalis of who you were and you go from feeling vulnerable to feeling that something brilliant has changed your life for the better.''
