Now, 20 years later, there's talk of another possible nod for that woman right there. Her latest film, where she's starring alongside the likes of julia roberts and meryl streep. It was good. But I wouldn't have considered him date material. He's not a date. He's my fiance. We're getting married on new year's in miami. And I would love it if you could make it. I don't really see that happening. Do you? Do you? Is that right? Steve? Yes, ma'am. You ever been married before? Ma'am, I have. More than once? Three times. Three times before this. Should pretty well have it down by now then. We are delighted to have juliette lewis here this morning. I watched the film a couple weeks ago. It is so powerful. Thank you. It's something we don't see as much anymore. That drama, based on the play that was such a hit on broadway. From the brilliant tracy letts. He, to me, is our generation's tennessee williams in a way. So, she writes these multifacetted, complicated, really strong women, in particular. And we have this movie. It's about complicated, you know, family dysfunction. All of the good stuff. All of the stuff you look for as an actor. You want to play, you know, really juicy, real stuff. Like real life. It is real life. Especially that scene. It's the holiday season. And there's going to be a lot of families around the table. We have strong moms. We were joking, some of the cast, that if anything, you'll leave this movie and go, wow. My family's not that messed up. So -- with that said, you know, there's themes of addiction and alcoholism and sister dynamics. The bossy older sister, the younger sister, trying so hard to please. The dinner table scene, there's something in it for everybody. It is. There's that awkwardness. And then, of course, it ends in physical violence. And so, that's always a good time. Yeah. But it's funny. That's what's -- it has everything. I love your role. You're the middle sister. I'm the youngest. And then, ivy and julia roberts. But the role you play, and you were funny about this. Julia roberts in the movie. And you are the beautiful sister. I'm the one who focuses on her appearance. The pretty sister. And julia does an amazing job because her character is going through a really tough time. And julia didn't want to -- you know, she's not supposed to be dolled up. So, she's really -- it's different, what we've ever seen from here. And this is something you've not seen from me, which is what i always look for. Something different. That's what we really have grown in watching you over the years. And to know that you just hit this milestone, 40 years old. You're embracing it. And you said that -- I didn't realize, your love for music. Yeah. Are you going to do more with that? Here's the joke I've been telling people. ONCE YOU'RE PAST YOUR 20s AND You're stressing and you don't have time, now, all you've got is time to do the thing you love. I was just talking to a girlfriend. She likes singing but she has three kids. And so, write. Song write on the weekend, just to nurture your soul and nurture your love. I was supposed to make music when I was really young. And I got successful making movies. Instead of going, that's it for me. No. I started a rock 'n' roll band when I turned 30. And I basically toured for a good seven years. I've been everywhere you can possible imagine. It's a source of pride for me. And I'm going to get back to it. It's been three years. I was making movies again. We're glad you're making movies.
