Actress-turned-singer Juliette Lewis refused to succumb to her rock dreams for years, because she was terrified of failing. The JULIETTE + THE LICKS frontwoman knew she wanted to be a singer but felt safer staying in movies, despite finding the glitzy vocation completely uninspiring. She says, "In the last decade I have written songs with various friends of mine and I was always putting off the music thing, even though I knew I needed to express myself that way. "I was putting it off out of fear. I had no balls yet. Until the desire became so huge it outweighed the fear. "I've done movies for 15 years. There is a security in it... the trouble is, it was never fulfilling me. Making movies can be really boring."
