Juliette Lewis Detests Emancipation Rift Rumors

November 8th, 2010 1:55pm EST

Juliette LewisJuliette Lewis is constantly annoyed by assumptions her teenage emancipation stemmed from a dysfunctional childhood - because her parents are "just the best."

The Cape Fear actress was legally emancipated from her mother and father when she was 14, sparking rumors of a rift in the family. However, Lewis is adamant the split from her parents was purely for professional reasons - and she hates her critics thinking otherwise.

She tells Stella magazine, "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 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."
