    Default Juliette Lewis: ‘I quit all my bullsh-t at 22. Get out of the past’


    Juliette Lewis

    Juliette Lewis is at a turning point.
    Admitting that most past news coverage about her was "usually about Brad Pitt or drug addiction, which hasn't been me since I was 22," she says, "I'm 40. I quit all my bulls--- at 22. There is growth. Get out of the past."

    At present, Lewis has two films at the SXSW arts fest in Austin: Kelly & Cal, which Variety in its review called an "inspired match-up of underserved veteran Juliette Lewis and breakout newcomer Jonny Weston," and writer-director Kat Candler's darkly emotional Hellion, which premiered Sunday and costars Josh Wiggins as a struggling teenager and Aaron Paul as his father.
    "I like doing roles that are rooted, where the character has a history and a range of emotion," says Lewis, who, as a young actress shot to fame with roles in the critically acclaimed What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Cape Fear and Natural Born Killers.
    Off-screen she was causing excitement, too – being chased by paparazzi during her relationships with both Pitt and Johnny Depp.

    But that was then. Lewis says turning 40 is about expressing herself.
    "I used to be really insular, really introverted, spoke very little words," she says. "I couldn't articulate myself."
    That means not only expressing herself with her screen work, but in the recording studio.
    After her turns in the Oscar-nominated August: Osage County and the ABC series Secrets & Lies with Ryan Phillippe, Lewis is also preparing her new album, her fifth and her most recent since 2009's Terra Incognita.

    "I took five years off of movies, just making music and touring," she says. "I am mid-life, and this is a new chapter for me.

    I like that she lumps Brad Pitt in with bullshit.

    She looks fucking fabulous for 40. She still looks early 30's, late 20's even.

    I think she's someone who gets more attractive as she ages. I always found her very weird looking, but she hasn't looked so awkward recently.

    Meh, I don't like her. Saw her at a gig once (as support!) and she was so rude

    I see that five years "off" has not improved her communication skills?

    Isn't she a scientologist? I hardly call that quitting all her bullshit.

    Yup.








    You would have thought that she would have had a better career for it. I'd want my $$$ back.

    I hate she's the C0$ but she was born to it. I think she looks great and is a great actress too.

    "I couldn't articulate myself."
    Unless I'm mistaken, this literally means "being able to move your own arms and legs". My kids were doing that since birth, but YMMV!

    I'm not quite sure where you get that meaning from.

    adj. adjective

    1. Endowed with the power of speech.
    2. Composed of distinct, meaningful syllables or words, as human speech.
    3. Expressing oneself easily in clear and effective language.

    an articulate speaker.

    v. verb

    1. To pronounce distinctly and carefully; enunciate.
    2. To utter (a speech sound) by making the necessary movements of the speech organs.
    3. To express in coherent verbal form; give words to.

    couldn't articulate my fears.

    Because articulate has more than one meaning:-
    1Having or showing the ability to speak fluently and coherently:
    she was not very articulate

    2 • technical Having joints or jointed segments:

    ^^^^
    i think she's referring to drug addiction and partying.
    if it is indeed her in the terry richardson shoot, even if it's terry richardson, if she was over 22, if it's consensual sex how is that 'bullshit' or anything a grown woman should feel she needs to apologise for or regret/be ashamed of?

    I've only ever heard articulate used in conjunction with speech. It certainly would never occur to me to use it another way. Seems a bit awkward, but that might just be me.
