Lewis went on to perform a number of roles that would win over both the critics and the movie-going public, alike, such as her role in Peter Medak's Romeo Is Bleeding. She then starred opposite Brad Pitt in the cult classic Kalifornia. Lewis also worked with Pitt on Too Young To Die?
One of Juliette Lewis' most renowned performances was in Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers, which was originally scripted by Quentin Tarantino. Lewis plays the lead female in the film, Mallory Knox, alongside Woody Harrelson.
In 1995, Lewis starred in Strange Days. In the film, she performs a cover of 'Hardly Wait', by PJ Harvey, predating Lewis's later stint as a singer in her own rock band.

She was teamed up with the songwriter Linda Perry, who has previously written and produced tracks for the likes of Pink and Courtney Love.
Juliette Lewis has also appeared on three tracks by The Prodigy, 'Spitfire', 'Get Up Get Off' and 'Hot Ride.'
Juliette Lewis was once engaged to her former co-star, Brad Pitt. She has also dated Michael Dewitt, the nanny employed by Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, to look after their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
