Juliette L. Lewis was born on the 21st June 1973, in Los Angeles, California USA, and is an actress and singer best known for her role in Martin Scorsese’s “Cape fear” (1991), which then cleared her path for other serious roles that followed, as well as for her TV appearances through the years.

Have you ever wondered how rich Juliette Lewis is? According to sources, it is estimated that Juliette Lewis` overall net worth is $20 million, wealth that comes from her numerous appearances in TV shows and movies that have been going on since 1987.

Since she had started her solo career, Juliette had quite a few performances herself, which all contributed to her overall net worth.
Juliette Lewis Net Worth $20 Million
Born as a child of an actor and a graphic designer, Juliette Lewis comes from an artistic family. Although her parents divorced when she was only two, she and her four siblings continued intermittently living with both their mother and father who have ever since encouraged her talents. As a result, at the age of seven she started acting, and a few years later her musical talent and interests also came through, so Lewis had her first gig when she was 12.
Although talented, Juliette turned out to be a bit of a rebel as well, so first problems showed at the beginning of puberty. When she was 13 she was caught smoking marijuana, and two years later she dropped out of high school. Driving without a license was just another one of her derelictions, until she was pulled over at age 21.
Back to her professional career; it is worth mentioning that after garnering international attention in Martin Scorsese’s “Cape fear”, Juliette had been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Further on, she appeared in the Woody Allen film “Husband And Wives” (1992), in 1993 she starred in the film “What`s Eating Gilbert Grape” alongside Johnny Depp, a year later she was cast in the film directed by Oliver Stone “Natural Born Killers”, and in 1996 she was featured as Kate Fuller in the film “From Dusk Till Dawn”, all of which considerably benefited her net worth. For her performance in the TV movie “Hysterical Blindness” (2002) she received an Emmy nomination.
Other than her career on the big screen, Lewis has also been featured in a number of TV series, such as “Dharma and Greg”(2002), “Wayward Pines” (2015), and “Secrets And Lies” (2015) among others. Overall, Juliette has been involved in over 70 productions, indicating that her talent is not imagined, and her net worth has been consistently earned over more than 30 years.
Today, Lewis is a defender of Scientology; she stands as a support of the church’s attitude against psychiatric drugs, and advocates Eastern philosophies and alternative medicine. She describes herself as politically independent. Lewis is a supporter of Little Kids Rock and works to keep music in low-income schools.
As well as her talents, Lewis is well known for her relationship with Brad Pitt. The couple dated in the early nineties, starting when Juliette was only 16 years old but split up four years later, which eventually led to the actress dealing with drug problems, spending her twenties in rehabilitation. She was then married to Steve Berra, a professional skateboarder and director from 1999 to 2003. Although divorced, the couple have stayed friends to date. She currently lives in Los Angeles.

Played a suicidal mental patient in the music video for the Melissa Etheridge song "Come to My Window". Lewis' erratic behavior frightened the director to the point where he yelled "Cut!" several unnecessary times for fear that Lewis had truly suffered a mental/emotional breakdown.
