Juliette Lewis is recognized as one of Hollywood’s most versatile and talented actors, stunning critics with her debut role in the 1991 film Cape Fear, for which she received an Oscar nomination. However, with more than one string to her bow, in 2003 she took a six-year hiatus from acting to pursue her burgeoning musical career, forming the rock band Juliette and the Licks together with Patty Scheme, the former drummer of Hole.
Her mother, Glenis Batley is a graphic designer, while her father, Geoffrey Lewis is an American actor. Her parents were divorced when she was just two years old, with her childhood split between both her parents’ homes in the Los Angeles area.
Over the years, Lewis has had a few brushes with the law, though, including, aged 16, being arrested for underage drinking in an underground dance club. Her poster-sized mug shot from that arrest now hangs in her home. She also drove without a driver’s license until the age of 21, buying a car under her friend’s name which she illegally drove since the age of 15. We’re assuming that her friend knew about this!
However, things took a turn for the worse, when, as a young adult, Lewis turned to drugs as a way to deal with her complicated and troubled life. Fortunately, she managed to quit them by the time she turned 22, although still finds it a struggle to remain drug-free, 20 years later, saying in a recent interview that she has “different priorities and experience and wisdom guiding me now.”
In 1995, Lewis was chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in the film history, landing in the #75 spot.
