Jenny Lewis isn't the only former actress to find musical success.
There seems to be a special musical buzz in the entertainment business at the moment reserved for screen actresses who are wanting to spread their wings in their career - and maybe earn some more money too. Whether it's Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande blowing everyone away with her stunning vocal range as she gears up to release her second album this summer, or indie favourite Jenny Lewis becoming ever more successful with her solo singing career after a good three years fronting a band, it appears that some actresses just can't resist testing their pipes in the recording studio. Even Hollywood sensation Scarlett Johansson dipped her toes in musical waters back in 2008 with her well-praised debut 'Anywhere I Lay My Head'.
While we're half expecting Keira Knightley to release a record any day now after singing on her latest drama 'Begin Again', we look at the film world's biggest female musical successes.
Jenny Lewis: Singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis this week released Voyager, her critically acclaimed third studio album. Although best known for her time fronting indie favourites, Rilo Kiley, music wasn't actually Lewis's first career choice, instead the Vegas native was intially known as an actress. Her early showbiz experience mainly consisted of TV roles, with small parts in the likes of 'Baywatch', 'Brooklyn Bridge' and 'The New Twilight Zone' in the 80s and early 90s as well as film stints on 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'The Wizard'. Her last major acting venture came with 1995's black and white drama 'Don's Plum' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire before she formed Rilo Kiley with then-boyfriend Blake Sennett.

For those of you that still don’t believe a movie adaption of Jem and The Holograms is – or at least will – exist, it just got a whole lot more believable. Deadline is reporting that Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald are signed on to star.

Lewis, the Oscar-nominated star of Natural Born Killers and Due Date, will join the live-action film adaption, which is based on the 1980s cartoon and popular line of toys in a ‘mystery role’, reports the industry site.

John Wells changed the ending of Tracy Letts' script, creating a stir in Toronto.
After premiering at this week's Toronto International Film Festival, it has been speculated that the ending of the Meryl Streep-starring August: Osage County could be changed ahead of its wide release late this winter. Director John Wells adapted Tracy Letts' prize-winning play but made the unfortunate mistake of slightly changing the ending which has caused some discontent at TIFF.
The Relationship Between Streep's Vi And Roberts' Barbara Is Crucial To The Plot.
Those who have seen the play performed onstage will recall that the final scene shows the Weston family's harsh matriarch, Vi sitting alone on the stairs of her now empty house after her daughters can't deal with her constant berating and have left the house. The scene is contemplative and loaded with metaphor, but changes drastically if you take the situation from Julia Roberts' Barbara's view as she's driving away - as Wells chose to do.

Meryl Streep's performance as a gorgon mother has been lauded in this family drama.
August: Osage County premiered at this week's Toronto International Film Festival to a storm of excitement from early critics and Oscar nudging. However, a few days later the dust has settled around John Wells' adaptation of Tracy Letts' award-winning play and we are able to catch our breath and collect our thoughts.
Meryl Streep Shines In August: Osage County As A Ferocious Mother.
Director John Wells' movie has been praised for its immersive scene setting and its out-of-the-park performances from an all-star, yet respected cast that includes Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Juliette Lewis, Julianne Nicholson, Benedict Cumberbatch and Abigail Breslin.
The Weston family know they are probably one of the most dysfunctional families around, but they do understand that sometimes it's best to stick together. Violet Weston is the family matriarch suffering from mouth cancer and heavily addicted to prescription drugs which only gets worse after the apparent suicide of her husband Beverly. As the funeral approaches, Violet's three daughters Barbara, Ivy and Karen and their families arrive at the house they grew up in, along with some other estranged relatives, hoping to get the whole ordeal over and done with fairly quickly. However, things don't go as smoothly as they, perhaps naively, hoped as they discover a whole load of closet skeletons they'd rather have not known about.
'August: Osage County' is a remarkable dark comedy directed by multi-Emmy winning John Wells ('The Company Men') and based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name by Tracy Letts ('Bug', 'Killer Joe'). It has been produced by George Clooney and Harvey Weinstein and is a warts-and-all story about the trials and tribulations of family affairs, uncovering both the heartwarming and the heartbreaking secrets that underline all families. It is set to be released in the UK on January 3rd 2014.

Tom Sizemore details intimate details about his alleged affair with actresses Liz Hurley and Juliette Lewis in his soon-to-be-publish memoirs.
Actor Tom Sizemore's fall from grace was as catastrophic as it was well-publicised and in his soon-to-be-published autobiography, By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There, Sizemore recounts the serious lows and the head-spinning highs in his no-hold-bars account. Perhaps most interesting of all in the account is one of the most significant highs; his (allegend) love affair with actress Liz Hurley in the 90's, as detailed in an excerpt obtained by New York Daily News.
Tom Sizemore's past has now entered the public domain with the upcoming publicatation

So who's Gilbert Grape, and what's eating him? Gilbert (Johnny Depp, in another outstanding performance from the film) is the unofficial caretaker of the Grape clan, a rural Iowa family that includes the aforementioned Arnie, coming up on 18 years old, and the enormous Momma (Darlene Cates), a 500-pound woman who hasn't left the Grape house in nearly a decade. Taking care of Arnie and Momma is enough work for three people -- but sisters Ellen and Amy don't carry their weight, leaving Gilbert to do the heavy lifting (no pun intended).

While there's not much to recommend in this indie study of pretentiousness, it's curious for the Ribisi siblings -- Marissa, the stunning redhead best known from her cameo in The Brady Bunch Movie, and her brother Giovanni, who strikes a much different character here than he's usually typecast in.

Jan Kounen, the Dutch cause celebre responsible for the hyperactive cult film Dobermann, tackles the epic story of Blueberry with a careful, almost blissed out style - much to the dismay of fans of his earlier work. Blueberry is a meditative work, a somnambulist's ramble through western history and psychedelica. The film is slowly paced but crescendos in a special effects blowout, a literal celluloid peyote trip, which would make Alejandro Jodorowsky jump with joy. (That isn't a random aside, Blueberry is as close an homage to Jodorowsky's El Topo as a big budget western can get.)

Strange Days continuously plays these two possibilities off of each other, and in L.A., on December 31, 1999, it seems either one is equally likely. Ralph Fiennes plays Lenny Nero, a bottom-feeder ex-cop who peddles "clips," full-sensory pieces of memory from real people's lives. These clips are played on "the wire," a device which delivers experiences directly into the brain. The very illegal wire is also the source of a whole slew of problems, including the murder of one Jeriko One, a very influential rap star, and the subsequent stalking of Faith (Juliette Lewis), Nero's ex-girlfriend, for whom he still pines.
