Juliette Lewis is grateful to have fans.

The actress-and-singer - who has just formed a new band The New Romantiques - was unsure if she could build a following when she first launched her music career and is thrilled people like her.

Juliette - whose first band was Juliette And The Licks - said: "When I first came out in music, I knew I was good for a hundred tickets pretty much anywhere. But I didn't know if they'd keep coming back, so it was a really terrifying time."

The 'Natural Born Killers' star says her acting roles have helped her singing.

She added: "What I aim for is what I aimed for in my acting. I approach it with a sense of make-believe much like a kid."
