Executive summary: Natural Born Killers

Lewis started acting in commercials at 12, and in her early teens made occasional appearances on 1980s sitcoms like The Wonder Years and The Facts of Life. At 14, she played the daughter on the short-lived sham-marriage sitcom I Married Dora, and to get around child-labor laws, so she could work as an actress more than a few hours a day, she sued for her legal emancipation. When she won, she promptly moved in with family friend Karen Black. "It wasn't a big, significant thing", says Lewis. "All it took was one hour in a court in downtown L.A. with me and my parents."

Juliette Lewis's first major role was as Nick Nolte's teen daughter in Cape Fear, which was followed by the serial killer thrillers Kalifornia with Brad Pitt and Natural Born Killers with Woody Harrelson. Her career has since faded to oblivion, with supporting roles in lowbrow stuff like Old School with Will Ferrell and Stiller & Wilson's Starsky & Hutch, and leading roles in more obscure films.

Lewis dropped out of high school at 15, and was an outspoken pothead for years, but she quit using drugs through Scientology's Narconon program.

She sings in a rock band, Juliette and the Licks.
