Lewis Craves Patti Smith Biopic

Actress-turned-rock chick JULIETTE LEWIS wants to combine her two loves in a movie biopic of punk legend PATTI SMITH.

The NATURAL BORN KILLERS star has been linked with a much mooted film about tragic rocker JANIS JOPLIN - but she would much rather star as Smith, because she's not convinced Hollywood would do Joplin's life justice.

She says, "I would love to do the story of Patti Smith.

"It's really hard to get biographies made and with the Janis Joplin story, I would just want to celebrate her funny nature and her individuality and the fact that she won in a man's world. But to do the drug addict story is pretty boring and I don't have that much faith that Hollywood would get it right."
