What happens on the set should stay on the set, Angelica Huston says in defending Jeffrey Tambor, who was accused of inappropriate behavior by two women. The actress appeared in two seasons of Transparent with Tambor. She also says that she wouldn't hesitate to work with Woody Allen again, in a wide-ranging Vulture interview, and that Roman Polanski has "paid his price." That doesn't mean she hasn't endured #MeToo experiences; almost daily, she says, "You're objectified, or misread, or put down."

Huston isn't forgiving of good actors who appear in bad movies, apparently for the money. Robert De Niro is one: "I don’t know the last thing that I’ve seen him in that I thought, Wow, he’s really cracking it," she says in the interview. Huston doesn't want that for Jack Nicholson, whom she was in a long-term relationship with. "I don’t want to see Jack doing Meet the Fockers," Huston says. (Robert De Niro has found a spot on SNL as Robert Mueller.)
