AS a skinny teenager growing up in Missouri and Nebraska, Steve Berra was pummeled by bullies and ridiculed for ditching organized sports in favor of skateboarding. With a shaved head, baggy clothes and few friends, Berra slept through most classes and had a 1.2 high school grade-point average. "What I was," Berra says, "was the kid who everybody assumed was a complete lost cause."

"I get these comments, 'Oh my God, you're so much prettier in person,' says Juliette Lewis, who looks so much prettier in person than she does on screen. "It's kind of a backhanded compliment. 'Oh, so I've been ugly all this time in film.' But I never played the vanity girl, so I don't mind. I'd rather be the rebel, be harsh." There is nothing rebellious or harsh about Lewis, at least at the moment.

"We had two beds and split those beds into a mattress and box spring," Hawk recalls. "You had two people to share a mattress and if you chose a box spring, you got it on your own . . . and that's how it was. You ate at Taco Bell every day."
