Juliette Lewis has pretty much mastered the part of the slightly crazy, not so classy chick we all wish was our Bff (most of the time, anyway).

From Luke Wilson's sexually, uh, liberated wife in "Old School" to the seriously blood-splattered Mallory Knox in "Natural Born Killers," she's proven that she isn't afraid to take chances. And, for the most part, her risks have paid off big.

But Lewis wasn't always so edgy. In fact, back in 1989 she was playing what could be coined traditional roles, like her turn as Clark Griswold's daughter, Audrey, in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

Written by the iconic John Hughes and directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik, "Christmas Vacation" will go down in history as one of the best movies ever Chevy Chase's funniest flicks. Which is still a pretty big achievement.

As Audrey, Lewis perfectly captured the surly teen, forced to share quality time with her annoying family. »
