Anjelica Huston - Anjelica Huston Loves Working With Kids

Anjelica Huston loves working with children.

The 59-year-old actress stars as teacher Miss Battleaxe in the forthcoming 'Horrid Henry: The Movie', and despite many people being apprehensive about working with youngsters, it is something she relishes.

She said: "I'm happiest working with children actually. It's fantastic because they don't second guess themselves.

"The older we get, the more we're like, 'I can't do that or I've never been good at that.' But kids just try things out. That's great for acting."

Discussing her character in the film - in which she appears alongside Richard E. Grant, Mathew Horne and Prunella Scales - Angelica admits she based her part on the common shrew.

She said: "I based her on this fantastic little animal I saw on a documentary. It's called the common shrew.

"It's only a small thing and has a long pointy nose and this strange, cockeyed look to it. I think it's partially blind so it has this bewildered look. But there's something very battleaxe about it."
