Sure, it might be easy to remember Juliette Lewis best from her younger, wilder days, but she wants everyone to know that her troubled times are LONG behind her and in fact, she’s actually had quite a great life since then.
Admitting that most past news coverage about her was “usually about Brad Pitt or drug addiction, which hasn’t been me since I was 22,” she says, “I’m 40. I quit all my bulls— at 22. There is growth. Get out of the past.”
Juliette Lewis is a great actress – most recently, she had a really great role in August: Osage County, and she’s definitely underrated. She’s certainly proof that problems in your youth don’t have to travel with you and you can get your life together. Now, if only some other troubled starlets would follow her lead…

We all remember when Natasha Richardson suddenly passed away after a skiing accident in 2009, and no one knows the sting of that tragedy more than her partner, Liam Neeson. He appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this week, where he discussed an interview he gave with 60 minutes following Natasha’s death – an interview he says left out a very important detail.
“We got hundreds – maybe a couple thousand – sympathy cards, emails and stuff from all over the world, especially America,” he recalled. “Not one from that ski resort.”
That’s really terrible, and seems bad form, to be honest. After such a terrible tragedy, the least they could do is send a sympathy card. Clearly even such a small gesture would have meant a lot.

Angelina Jolie might seem like Wonder Woman, but turns out, there’s one thing she didn’t know how to do: cook. With six kids to feed, that sounds like a bit of a problem – one that’s solved by being rich and able to afford a personal chef, one would imagine, but she wanted to be able to make the meals herself. With that in mind, she set out to learn how to prepare various meals, and is said to be “very proud” of her new kitchen prowess.
The gorgeous movie star mom, 38, recently overcame her kitchen-phobia, after learning a few healthy tips and culinary tricks from the pro. This will be a big lifestyle swap for the children, who are the “worst eaters,” according to the source. And feeding six kids with different food preferences is no simple task: The Jolie-Pitt kids “want to eat different things at different times,” the source adds.
Sounds like a potential headache, but good on her for not relying on the perks of fame for this one!

We all remember Melissa Joan Hart best as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, but she’s had several other roles since and has managed to remain a working actress – even if the projects she’s been working on aren’t exactly mainstream. However, now she’s in the spotlight for a whole other reason: dropping 40 pounds!
After giving birth to her son Tucker in 2012, Melissa found herself with some weight to lose, and after going on Nutrisystem and adding some good old fashioned exercise, she soon found herself back in shape and wanted to share her story with others. Apparently, she’s lost “three jean sizes, all [her] baby weight and then some”. “I just wanted to put something on and be like, ‘Okay, good’,” she explained. “I have been able to forgo the Spanx…and its been really nice.”
We think she looks great!

Amanda Bynes has had a rough go of it this past year, for sure. Between her various police run-ins, mental illness diagnosis and a rehab stint, it’s fair to say the girl deserves a bit of a break as she attempts to recover at her parents’ house in California.
With that in mind, some good news has come Amanda’s way: she’ll avoid jail time in her DUI case after accepting a plea deal in which she pleaded no contest to a lesser alcohol-related offense.
She won’t get off entirely scott-free, however: she’s on probation for three years and will have to attend an alcohol education class. She’ll also pay a few fines, but hey, at least she’ll be able to continue her recovery at home! We’re rooting for you, girl.
