9. She used Jack Nicholson to help her make her boyfriend jealous.
In 2006, de la Huerta and Jack Nicholson got the rumor mill running when they walked the red carpet together at the premiere of The Departed. When asked about her relationship to the actor in an interview with The New York Times Magazine, de la Huerta revealed that she had met Nicholson at a party at The Roosevelt Hotel when she was 19.
De la Huerta told the interviewer, "[Jack Nicholson] said to me: 'They don’t make them like you anymore. I haven’t seen a beautiful girl like you since 1965.' I said, 'Let’s go make my boyfriend jealous.' So he had me cornered, and he was flirting with me, and my boyfriend got completely jealous. We’ve stayed friends."
