One would think that former party girls Juliette Lewis and Drew Barrymore would have bumped into each other over the years.

 Surely they met at some of the same wild parties? 

Seems not.

"Oddly enough, you would have thought we'd been friends. We both lived a little," Juliette said, smiling slyly at Tuesday's "Whip It" junket. " But we didn't know each other. We really never did."  

She first met Drew in her office to discuss the film. 

"She’s really smart and well versed in cinema and loves the texture and the nuance of film. She has a relationship to it …," says Juliette, who has worked with some major directors over the years, including Oliver Stone, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. 

But she says her role as Iron Maven was a great role to do after her five-year break. "This is me coming back to that world a little bit, and it was a sweet role to do it with."

Check out Juliette's website for concert information and her new album, Terra Incognito.
