Hollywood actress ANJELICA HUSTON still loves ex-boyfriend Jack Nicholson and considers him a "friend for life".

THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS star has long forgiven the Hollywood lothario for ending their 16-year relationship with his infidelity after he impregnated the then-26-year-old Rebecca Broussard in 1989.

Huston, who is married to sculptor Robert Graham, says she talks to Nicholson "whenever I like".

She adds, "Jack's a friend for life, and at a certain point there's no reason not to talk to him.

"Certainly I care about him. I love him very much. Everything is chill."
