Interview | Juliette Lewis Discusses August: Osage County


An 18 year old Juliette Lewis first appeared on screen opposite Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese’s Cape Fear, for which she received both an Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. Debuts don’t come much better than that, and meaty roles in 90’s hits Woody Allen’s Husbands and Wives and Natural Born Killers soon followed. Acting isn’t the only string in Lewis’ bow however, and recently she has been focusing on her music career, touring with her band Juliette and the Licks.

On behalf of HeyUGuys, I caught up with the actress ahead of the release of August: Osage County in which she plays the ebullient Karen, one of three sisters who return to their hometown to support their drug-addled mother Violet, played by Meryl Streep. Coming across just as bubbly as the character she portrays, Lewis tells us why Karen was such a perfect fit for her, and what it was like working with her esteemed co-stars.
