#Fact
1 Jack's maternal grandfather was Hugh Cholmondeley, 6th Marquess of Cholmondeley. Through the Marquess's father, George Cholmondeley, 5th Marquess of Cholmondeley, who was of English ancestry, Jack is a descendant of Robert Walpole, the first Prime Minister of England (in the 1700s). The 6th Marquess's mother, Jack's great-grandmother Sybil Sassoon, was from a Jewish family (from Iraq, India, Germany, and France), and through her, Jack is a descendant of both David Sassoon, the treasurer of Baghdad between 1817 and 1829, and Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who founded the Rothschild banking dynasty. Jack's maternal grandmother, Lavinia Margaret (Leslie), was of British background.
2 Unlike his famous paternal family, Jack Huston was born and raised in England, and naturally speaks with an English accent. On Jack's American father's side of the family, he is from Hollywood royalty, and on Jack's British mother's side, he is a descendant of aristocracy. Jack's paternal grandfather, John Huston, was of mostly English, Scottish, and Northern Irish, ancestry, and Jack's paternal grandmother, ballerina and model Enrica (Soma), was of Italian descent.
3 Jack and his girlfriend, Shannan Click, have a daughter, Sage Lavinia Huston, born April, 2013, and a son, Cypress Night Huston, born January 2016.
4 Brother of Laura Huston and Matthew Huston.
5 Great-grandson of Walter Huston.
6 Grandson of John Huston.
7 Nephew of Anjelica Huston and Danny Huston.
8 Son of Walter Anthony Tony Huston and Lady Margot Lavinia Cholmondeley.

#Quote
1 [on Not Fade Away (2012)] We were playing a lot together. Everyone was in the same understanding that we wanted this to be as authentic as possible when we were playing. We were going tooth and nail trying to get this right. By the end of it, we were a band. And one of the best things about it was we became friends. You're forced together in such an intimate setting before you even start filming. So three months into rehearsing that long, we were hanging out at night playing together. Everyone should do that before a movie.
2 The old movie stars like Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, James Stewart, they weren't this gorgeous, striking six-foot man who's rippled with muscles. They just really had character in their face and they drank and they smoked and I love that shit. These were the real actors. They really lived, and you could see the lines on their faces, the lines of the years that they lived. You just believed them. I loved that.
3 You can almost read any emotion through someone's eyes. Having one eye, that eye has to do double time. [Richard Harrow]'s written so well and it comes so naturally: the pain and the anguish, they're so deep-rooted inside of me now. I feel like when I put that mask on, I transform.
