Movie star Juliette Lewis acts on instincts and finds raw emotion in her music. By Kyle Mullin for Edmonton’s SEE Magazine, July 29 2010

Music has always been Juliette Lewis’ miraculous muse-from her efforts to fulfil her rock star dreams, to the times she rehearsed the words of a murderer.

While learning the lines for her role as Mallory Knox in OliverStone’s Natural Born Killers, Lewis often cranked Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child” and let his gypsy guitar conjure the trembling chaos she needed for nearly every scene.

“I tweak out over songs, they’re a shortcut to emotion,” she says of her erratic rehearsal process. “Sounds connect to vibration, which connect to energy and emotion. Even if you don’t know it, that’s what you’re talking about when you say a person has a good vibe or aura — and a good guitar riff or snare beat amplifies the vibration of (the player’s) spirit.”
