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.''
