This unique star didn't let her critics hold her back!

Actress and director Angelica Huston is her family's third generation to win an Oscar. In her 20s she posed for photographer Richard Avedon, modeled for Halston, and had her hair styled by Vidal Sassoon. But her life hasn't been a walk in the park!

Modeling agency exec Eileen Ford suggested she get a nose job. Avedon said her shoulders were too wide. And a theater critic said she had the "face of a gnu"!

But this tough-shelled Cancerian turned negatives into positives, working in over 70 movies and TV programs.

"I knew I didn't have the easiest face in the world," she admits. "I was able to take advantage of a time when unusual became something to be coveted."
