"I'm not running to a love life. I've finally started to like being alone."
Feisty, sexy, cocky, unique, all describe Juliette Lewis. She is the farthest from insecure you will ever find. Juliette Lewis began her acting career at the age of twelve. By fourteen, she was legally emancipated by the California courts because child labor laws prevent child actors from working more than 5 hours on school nights and require them to have a guardian. She wanted to pursue her acting career full time and being legally declared an adult was the only way that she could. At fifteen, she dropped out of high school, but with the help of a tutor passed her equivalency exam.
She was bon on June 21st, 1973 in Los Angeles to actor Geoffrey Lewis and graphic designer Glenis Batley. She has 11 siblings and half-siblings from her mothers three marriages and her fathers four. Her career started in 1987 with the TV series "I Married Dora" and the Showtime mini-series "Home Fires."
She made her film debut in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" playing Chevy Chase's daughter. In 1991's "Cape Fear" she played a vulnerable fifteen-year-old struggling for independence from her parents. Her performance won her critical acclaim as well as an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Her filmography reads like a soap opera. She seems to attract controversial and provocative roles and with serial-killer-psycho films like "Kalifornia" and "Natural Born Killers" Juliette's reputation for playing extraordinary characters was elevated.
She has appeared in over a dozen movies and has brought an ever changing, yet rare style to each character she has played. Her performance in the romantic drama "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" opposite Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio showed a softer, more reflective side to her acting ability. In "Strange Days" she plays a drug addict. Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives" finds her to be a precocious co-ed who has her eyes on a much older married man.
Her eccentric styles both on and off the screen make her one of Hollywood's most intriguing people. Her hobbies include collecting antique clothing and documenting everyday moments with a tape recorder, in an effort to capture reality for future use in her career. She is also a devout member of the Church of Scientology. Her unique way of looking at life is fascinating. Juliette has said of her appearance, "It's an ability to look unattractive. I think I can be beautiful with all the little stuff done, and I can be ugly. A lot of attractive actresses can't be ugly."
