Anjelica Huston has always been attracted to "bad boys".
The 60-year-old actress - who was married to sculptor Robert Graham for 16 years until his sudden death in December 2008 - dated photographer Bob Richardson, who was 23 years her senior, when she was a teenage model, and then had a 17-year tempestuous romance with Jack Nicholson and says the actor's edginess was his main appeal when they first met in 1973.
Recalling meeting lothario Jack at a party, she said: "I was invited by my then-stepmother Cici. The door opened and Jack's grinning face presented itself to me and I thought, 'Ah, I like you.'
"I was always attracted to bad boys, cool boys. Actors, musicians, those kinds of guys."
Anjelica split with Jack for good in 1989 when he fathered a child with actress Rebecca Broussard but insists they are still friends and he even came to Robert's funeral to support her.
She added to the Daily Mail newspaper: "There's too much water under the bridge now. I love and respect Jack, we remain friends.
"There have been some lonely moments since my husband died. You don't get over losing people."
