Be your own hero. Fox Searchlight has debuted the poster for Whip It today on MTV, which is the roller derby movie starring Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Wiig, Zoe Bell, and Juliette Lewis.
In Bodeen, Texas, the indie-rock loving Bliss Cavendar (Ellen Page) finds a way of dealing with her small-town misery after she discovers a roller derby league in Austin and tries to join as Babe Ruthless. Whip It!, which is not about that Devo song, is the feature directing debut of actor Drew Barrymore. The screenplay was written by Shauna Cross, of only Taking 5 previously. Cross also wrote the book that this is based on and plays roller derby as well. Fox Searchlight is bringing Whip It! to theaters on October 9th.
If you haven’t seen the Whip It trailer yet, you can watch it now:
On a sweltering summer evening at New York’s Central Park SummerStage, actress turned musician Juliette Lewis bounces onto the stage dripping in multicolored sequins and issues a strict order: “I’m going to give you energy, you’re going to give some back, and then we’re going to double it, triple it!”
The star of Natural Born Killers and Cape Fear (which earned her an Oscar nomination) seems to approach music with the same fearlessness she brings to the screen, unleashing stage performances that are raw, kinetic, frenzied, possessed. She currently shares a touring bill with Cat Power and The Pretenders, and opens each show by riling up the audience, even if it takes jumping into the crowd or taunting the quiet ones in the bleachers. In contrast to the long line of famous Hollywood actors who have tackled music careers only to end up limping away in humiliated defeat, Ms. Lewis has been going strong for six years—touring relentlessly during that time—and she fully intends to stay.

NATURAL BORN KILLERS star JULIETTE LEWIS has opened up about her romance with BRAD PITT, calling her time with the budding movie stud “lovely”.
Lewis and Pitt started dating years before they became big stars and were together when their breakthrough roles in Thelma & Louise and Cape Fear were released six months apart in 1991.
Though they split soon after, Lewis has nothing but fond memories of the time she spent as Pitt’s partner.
She tells Black Book magazine, “It was such a lovely time in my life… because we were anonymous. We were both struggling actors and Brad blew up after we were together… We were just unknown young actors in L.A.
“I even remember his little bungalow that we lived in off Melrose (Avenue), that we’d smoke lots of pot in.
“Then we split and he became Brad Pitt.”
Lewis admits she’s happy she wasn’t caught up in her ex-lover’s superstardom and everything that came with it – like her The Baster co-star Jennifer Aniston, Pitt’s ex-wife, was.
She adds, “It’s so hard but she handles it with such grace and humour.”
Juliette Lewis, best known for her performances in films like Natural Born Killers and From Dusk Till Dawn, took a few minutes off during layover en route to Austin to chat with us about her new band, Juliette and the New Romantiques. The group is the second musical project for Lewis, who toured and released the 2007 album Four on the Floor with Juliette and the Licks. Lewis was fresh off of shooting for Betty Anne Waters, directed by Tony Goldwyn and starring Hilary Swank.
Is it hard to switch gears straight from doing a movie to doing music?
It used to be, but now I find that songwriting and acting, drama, they feed each other. I’m a better actress because I’m a songwriter, and I’m a better songwriter because I work with drama and emotion. Yesterday I played an alcoholic, downtrodden, forty year old – they aged me with makeup. That was intense, but I love it. When you make movies, it seems pretty darn relaxed after you’ve toured on a bus or a van for two years. I’ve toured in a van, so I know that a bus is a luxury. Continue Reading
