Juliette LewisACTRESS | DIRECTOR
Juliette started her career as a child actor and made a wonderful transition to a career as an adult actor. This is one of the most difficult transitions an actor can make. She spoke about it in great detail when she came to visit NYFA at Los Angeles in January 2011. Her first film was My Stepmother is an Alien, followed by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. She is best known for her roles in Natural Born Killers, Kalifornia, and Cape Fear. Juliette loves speaking with acting and filmmaking students, and the students at NYFA are no exception. She “tweeted” news about the event just before her arrival, and spoke about how amazing the questions were and how the students really keep her on her toes. Way to go NYFA students! She is excited to visit the campus again when she wraps her next film, so keep your eyes peeled! Juliette on fame: “Fame can be just so annoying because people are so critical of you. You can’t just say, ‘Hi.’ You say ‘Hi’ and people whisper, ‘Man, did you see the way she said Hi? What an attitude!” She is the exact opposite — so down to earth and so real; she treated the students as if she had know them all for 20 years!
