Two Old Pros Come Together for Saturday Evening Post Q&A

When you’ve been in the entertainment journalism game as long as Jeanne Wolf, there is no longer any doubt about a preferred professional approach. As the veteran reporter’s personal website About page makes clear, she’s in it to have fun.

That breezy M.O. imbues Wolfe’s Q&A with Anjelica Huston for the March/April issue of The Saturday Evening Post. The interviewer and Smash star are each in their own way grand dames of Hollywood, freely and comfortably chatting be the topic Jack Nicholson or the actress’ in-progress autobiography:

Q: You’re writing a memoir. How is that going?
AH: I’m kind of in the midst of it, and it’s daunting, but on the other hand, it feels quite cathartic. Since I’m in the process, it’s a bit hard to talk about. I remember quite a lot, I have to say. Sometimes I wish I remembered a bit less.

Q: For example?
AH: Well, I remember that when my mother died I was going through that very difficult period where I was just becoming a woman. And she was sort of having to make the adjustments to that.

It looks like Wolf has just started contributing to the centuries-old magazine. Other Q&As have been with Shirley MacLaine and Mad Men maestro Matt Weiner.
