This gal right here.

Rock on, Jul.  We wouldn’t want to see this on a typical red carpet, but if there’s any place where a celeb should let it all hang out in public, it’s SXSW. Suddenly we want to grab a Pabst with her. Which we would immediately pour out for Tupac, order a local microbrew, and tell her we love her but the hat’s a no.

    But didn’t you know, dear Uncles? PBR is the beer of choice for hipsters now!

    ETA: Of course, now that that’s known, it’s no longer considered cool and the hipsters have moved on to another brand of shitty cheap beer.

    • Sarah

      True. And Tupac never had one drop of it in his whole natural born life, I’m thinking.

      • sojourneryouth

        I would agree. PBR isn’t really seen too much in the black community (even though we can be pretty diverse, “the black community” is useful for generalizations.) If you wanna pour a little out for a hip hop homie and be authentic, you pretty much need malt liquor or sizzurp. Sounds stereotypical, but there is truth in it.

        • Sarah

          This is where I was coming from. I am pretty familiar with the “generalized” community of which you speak, and PBR is not a part of it, that I’ve ever seen.

        • tereliz

          Mmm, sizzurp.

          • sojourneryouth

            Hahahaha! You get the sippy cups, I’ll get the Jolly Ranchers!

        • MikeW_Vegas

          Colt 45 or Schlitz Malt Liquor Bull anyone? Maybe an Olde English?

      • Imasewsure

        He went to Middle School like the rest of us… I’m sure he had a Pabst or two in his day

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      As well they should. Pabst has been coasting on that one blue ribbon for far too long.

      • KinoEye

        But, they won an award in 1893! One award in more than 150 years of brewing! You gotta coast on those laurels as long as you can. You never know when the next one will come around.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          I think we all know when their next award will come around 😉

      • jtabz

        This made me (and then my office mate) laugh out loud. Indeed, they have.

      • Paigealicious

        My grandpa always said, “Horse piss came in second.” (We’re from Wisconsin.)

    • tereliz

      PBR is the beer for hipsters with no beer palate. Drink Saint Arnold if you’re in Tehass, baybee!

      • Ginger

        Real Ale (their Brewer’s Cut is pretty dang tasty) is better than Saint Arnold (even though SA is alright). Jester King is the best in that area though…hands down.

      • Jenny E

        Southern Star Bombshell Blonde is a great Texas beer, too. Brewed about 15 miles north of where I’m sitting.

  • Carleenml

    yes! my initial reaction was “just say no to the hat.” everything else is cute.

  • Sarah

    I love that she’s at the premiere for something called “Hellion.” Very fitting for her style.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Ignoring the hat, love everything else.

  • That hat is now hipster kitsch. They’re evolving!

  • RescueMe23

    She frightens me a little bit.

  • @Biting Panda

    I want to have a whiskey with her, but I get your point.

    • Ginger

      I’d be afraid to have whiskey with her. Can you imagine where you’d wake up?

      • Sarah

        Uh, that’s totally the fun part.

        • lunchcoma

          I would normally agree, but the conversation in the Amber Heard post about inexplicably waking up in bed with Johnny Depp has made me unusually cautious.

          • butterflysunita

            What? Now I have to immediately go over to the Amber Heard post.

    • She’s teetotal, I think. So I’d have to drink all the whiskey.

      • Ginger

        She’s teetotal? Seriously?

        • I read an interview with her recently and I am sure it said she’s been sober for many years now.

          ETA – no, my mistake, it said she is “drug free” for almost 20 years.

      • Jacob Bowen

        I am so glad for context clues, because “teetotal” was definitely not in my lexicon until now. I really like saying it though.

  • Kathy

    She looks so happy. Love huh!

  • nannypoo

    I have never noticed before how much she looks like Tom Hanks.

  • KT

    This is really cute. Totally fitting for both her and for South by, but that hat is a bridge too far — though it’s not nearly as ridiculous as some of the accessories you will see there. I say that out of jealousy, as I really wish I was there right now. But anyway — yes, Juliette Lewis is fabulous and I love her too.

  • Haley Buchanan

    Right clothes, right gal, right place. The hat kinda works for me as an ironic statement piece about ironic statement pieces.

  • Imasewsure

    She is the only one who could make this work and not make it schtick-y… Hats gotta go but that’s what multiple beer rounds are for (hand her the third beer, grab the hat and toss it to the drunkest one in the room)
    She is fabulous

  • marlie

    Everything except the hat is cute, and really wearable. Though I’d switch out the shoes, but that’s a minor quibble. LOVE the jacket.

  • sojourneryouth

    I actually kind of like the hat with the outfit. It’s funny, and she’s in on the joke. She knows awful trucker hats are so 2002, and she gives not one fuck.

  • lunchcoma

    This is cute, completely appropriate for the event, and all ties together. I’m glad she went full out casual instead of trying to screw up formal clothing with dirty shoes like the boy stars do.

  • AC Simons

    Ms. Juliette never seems to age! She looks very cute and venue-appropriate here.

    • marlie

      I was thinking the same thing. And if she has had work done (which I don’t think she has), it’s really subtle.

  • Alyssa

    She looks cute and comfortable. Gotta lose the hat though. I unexpectedly like the demin shirt with those pants…I’m not usually a denim shirt fan!

  • uprightcitizen

    Dang. Look how pretty her face is. I’m with you guys. The outfit is adorable, but the hat is like ten years ago, and then only ironic on Ashton Kutcher. If she just switched it out for a cute tweed British driving cap or newsboy, this would have been perfect.

    • uprightcitizen

      But not the one Depp is wearing in the next picture. The brim on that thing is a cartoon.

  • hughman

    The hat must mean they’re bringing back that whole circa “2000” look. BION, I still own clothes from that era.

  • snarkykitten

    Josh Hartnett circa 2001 called. he wants his hat back.

    • Daisy Buchanan

      Wasn’t Kutcher trying to make the trucker hat happen just a few years ago too? (That is a trucker hat, right? I think it is.)

      • decormaven

        Makes me think of “Britney & Kevin: Chaotic.”

      • marlie

        Kutcher started it (I think), but all of the “bros” were rocking it at some point.

      • snarkykitten

        oops. might have mixed up my bland male celeb faces again

  • kimmeister

    I know who Tupac was, but I’m afraid I don’t get the reference to him here.

  • alyce1213

    What I love is that these clothes are hers, she really wears them, and she looks really cool. Except the hat, always hated that kind of cap.

  • frannyprof

    Love love love her. Hate hate hate the hat.

  • LuisaNL

    she looks adorable. the hat’s still a no.

  • LaSylphide

    This is more ‘her’ than any RC gown, even though she often looks great in said gowns.

  • Kitten Mittons

    I love that she looked so beautiful and confident in all the red carpet gowns for Oscar season, yet looks so comfortable and happy in her quirkier casual clothes. Many can’t do both. Love her to death.

    • Daisy Buchanan

      I just have to say how much I *love* your name. And now I’m going to have Charlie’s voice in my head all day. “Is your cat making too much noise all the time??”

      • Kitten Mittons

        “Is your cat constantly clawing at your furnitures? Think there’s no answer?? YOU’RE SO STUPID!!!!”
        Thanks! Everyone needs a little sunny in their day, imho.

        • Daisy Buchanan

          Charlie is absolutely my favorite. The episode where he’s sucking down gas is just…well, I may have to go watch it right now :))

          • Kitten Mittons

            Lucky you. If you can squeeze in “The Gang Gets Trapped,” I’ll officially be jealous.

          • Daisy Buchanan

            Well, don’t be jealous, but now that you mentioned it, I *have* to watch it. With a reminder like that…

            I really hope “The Gang Tries to Win an Award” is their official submission in every Emmy category this year. Still can’t fathom they’ve been overlooked in everything for nine seasons.

            And I still can’t believe that Kaitlin Olson was Becky on Curb Your Enthusiasm.. “Larry, you ate the baby Jesus and his mother, Mary!”

          • Kitten Mittons

            Sweet Dee is so underrated. The episodes where she is pregnant are painfully funny. And a huge “Yes!” to everything you wrote above.

            And Curb? ohmygoodness. You and I will get along pretty, pretty, PRETT-Y good.

          • Daisy Buchanan

            Well I must confess, beneath the sheath dresses and the stilettos and the red lips, I am Larry David’s personality 🙂

            Although, as much as I love Sunny, I hate them for giving me the image of naked Danny DeVito crawling out of a sofa cushion. That was just… is… will forever be… horrifying.

            I still wish they hadn’t killed off Anne Archer so soon, but I guess back then, they had no idea they’d last this long.

          • Kitten Mittons

            So much DeVito nakedness. BUT….they also gave us Rum Ham. And CharDee MacDennis. And possibly my personal favorite, the McPoyles. I need some milk, my bathrobe, and my Netflix, please.

  • peachy

    ha! she reminds me of ashton kutcher 10 years ago trying to be cool

  • ralish

    She looks great, but this reads a bit too much “I’m in Texas, and I’m dressing the part.”

  • KinoEye

    Yeah… the hat’s got to go. I like Pabst as much as the next person, under the right circumstances, but that hat is taking it straight to Truckersville and I don’t want to go there. Even with Juliette as my guide.

  • Daisy Buchanan

    Juliette, Winona, Sandra… they’ve found the fountain of youth somewhere. Juliette looks radiant here.

  • Liz

    Hate the hat, but love everything else. She looks like someone who would be a lot of fun to have a beer with.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Shine on, you crazy diamond.

  • LiliLynch

    You can see on the backdrop that Miller Lite is one of the event sponsors…I’m surprised some event person didn’t make her take off the PBR hat! Or maybe they tried…

  • Cheryl

    Everything here is cute but the damn hat. Please give those hats back to truckers and guy/gals driving tractors.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    She is still so. Damn. Cute. Rock on.

  • CT14

    The hat’s a big no.

    But strangely enough, this is the second outfit I’ve liked her in. I have irrational hatred for Juliette Lewis, and if she just tossed the hat to the crowd, she’d be a WERQ

  • Leah Elzinga

    everything but the hat. Far from perfect, but I can get down with some tomboy styling.

  • smayer

    Unzip the jacket because she looks a little stuffed in (probably due to the looseness of the shirt), and it’s all good.

  • jw_ny

    Those are some LOW rise jeans she has on…glad she’s not sporting a crop top. 🙂

    I like the flare of the shirt cuff coming out of the jacket…adds a bit of femininity to an otherwise boy-ish look. She looks fun and cool, although I kinda hate the hat.

  • GeoDiva

    All trucker hats need to be burned!

  • tereliz

    God, I want that jacket. It looks so lived in. In a GOOD way.

    LOL, they don’t have “micro” brews in Texas. That would be admitting that something in the state is small. They call them craft beers instead.

  • Danielle

    WHYYYY is Pabst a Thing again? Swill.

    • Shawn EH

      Up here it’s Naragansset. Hipsters. But I bet it’s just a hat for Juliet.

  • MilaXX

    So all the celebs going to SxSW are gong to be dressed a bit extra I guess. Much like Matt, Ms Lewis here went one accessory to many. I’ll overlook it because she paid her dues and dressed like a grownup for the entire awards season. A gals gotta let her inner crazy out at some point.

  • macwell

    I gotta say – I like the look – hat included. it kind of demands it even – ! Also, LOVE Jennifer. She looks like she would be so cool to hang with. She would totally have Cammie and Drew’s back if a fight broke out….;)

  • sagecreek

    Sorry, you can’t wear that hat, even in Austin. And PBR is only for faux hipsters.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Can we use the hat for smacking faux hipsters drinking PBR? Oh PLeez, PLeez!

  • Dan_In_NYC

    I came here to say the exact thing you did – love everything… except that effing hat. And I’m fine not matching belt and shoes, but I’m not sure those shades even ‘go’ together.

  • Frank_821

    Oh btw in case no one posted this already, Sharon needles was in Austin on friday night performing with the local drag troop and she gave a friend of mine a Pabst Blue Ribbon. I wish I could have seen her but I couldn’t stay out late that night

  • Nexli B

    I so very much want to go to Robert’s and hang out with her, even if it means drinking a PBR.

  • Jacob Bowen

    She makes my dad’s work outfit look REALLY cute!

  • calimon

    I would not join anyone for a PBR, who is wearing a PBR trucker hat, in public.

  • JynxTheCat

    Guess what does not need to come back: Trucker hats. That’s what.

  • poorellensmith

    It doesn’t look like she’s wearing that has so much as she’s balancing it, rather precariously, on her head…

  • allcapsERINN

    She’s glowing and her skin is gorgeous. You go, girl. I love people who make 40 look good. 🙂

  • save_the_hobbit

    Who is she because I think I might be in love with her. I feel like this is the event Heffron Drive played, it, anybody know if I’m correct? I’d love to see what Kendall Schmidt wore, he may have his roots in a nickelodeon boyband but he tends to dress like a homeless gay boy with big fashion aspirations.

  • Samantha

    “Which we would immediately pour out for Tupac, order a local microbrew, and tell her we love her but the hat’s a no.” HA! Let’s his Standard Tap sometime.
