ussell Means, who first rose to prominence as a leader of the 1973 Wounded Knee uprising of Native American activists and who later was cast in a major role in the movie The Last of the Mohicans, has died of cancer at his ranch in Porcupine, South Dakota at age 72.

After Mohicans, he also appeared in Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers and was the voice of the Indian chief in Disney's Pocahontas in 1995. He guest-starred on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm in 2004. Means was diagnosed with esophageal cancer last year but said that he would seek treatment from practitioners of traditional Indian medicine rather than mainstream cancer specialists.

Lewis Slams Prostitute Stereotype


Juliette Lewis Natural Born Killers Jack White

Actress/singer Juliette Lewis was forced to overcome being stereotyped as a prostitute to succeed as a rocker.
The JULIETTE + THE LICKS frontwoman was stunned to discover she couldn't enter the male dominated world of rock 'n' roll without being portrayed in a sexual way.
The 33-year-old Natural Born Killers actress says, "It's 2006, you would not f**king believe the video treatments (music video ideas) I was given. Nine out of 10 video treatments were me being a stripper, me working in a brothel, there was one where I'm just fornicating with the camera.
"Even though I write sexual innuendo lyrics and they're funny and rock 'n' roll, so does Jack White. You think he gets a video treatment where he's f**king the camera?
"In this game I am an actress crossing over, I'm a female doing c**k rock, I'm having to prove myself but I kind of thrive on it."
