Juliette Lewis legally emancipated herself from her parents, actor Geoffrey Lewis and graphic designer Glenis Duggan Batley, at the age of 14 in order to avoid child labor laws. Rumors of a fight between the "Cape Fear" actress and her parents quickly followed, but Juliette insists that wasn't the case.
"That still bothers me because it was down to me and my big mouth going, 'Oh, I live on my own! I got emancipated!' not knowing how that would be taken as a division between me and my parents," the actress told Stella magazine. "The truth is that it's something very common that you did when you were acting very young and my parents actually helped me to do that. My parents are just the best." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
