Jewel Transforms Into June Carter Cash For Upcoming Lifetime Biopic

Jun 7, 2012 08:10 AM


Jewel is all set to play Johnny Cash's wife in the upcoming Lifetime flick, Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash.

The 38-year-old country star sported a gorgeous grill and long, dark locks in a photo she posted on Twitter. Jewel wrote, "Here I am as June in my trailer with her blue eyes and perfect teeth #ringoffire."

Lifetime released a statement saying the film will be based on Johnny Cash's retrospective of his mother's life, spanning 50 years of June's as well.

Reese Witherspoon earned an Oscar for her role as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line. Can Jewel give Reese a run for her money?

We'll be watching. And Jewel, quick favor. Please keep the teeth ... looks so good!

jewelbaby.jpgJewel and husband Ty Murray posted this photo of their adorable 4-month-old son Kase Townes the other day, and it looks like the family had an awesome turkey day together!

Jewel wrote on her WhoSay page, "Thought I'd share a pic of the baby taken on Thanksgiving. He is the happiest baby!" Last month Jewel gushed to The Today Show, "I hit the baby lotto. He's just a really sweet, easy-going little baby. I'm so lucky."

Jewel was also promoting her new children's album The Merry Goes 'Round, and she revealed that she produced the majority of the record online, which helped her to be "more of a stay-at-home mom." Jewel added, "I live in a really remote part of Texas," she added. "My husband is a rodeo cowboy. I'm trying to figure out how to be home but still do something I love."

The little cowboy weighed in at 7 lbs, 6 oz. Congrats to her and hubby Ty Murray!

The couple married in 2008 and live on a 2,200 acre farm in Texas. Murray is a world champion rodeo cowboy.

We know what little Kase is falling asleep to every night -- mommy's singing! Jewel released Lullaby, a collection of children's songs, in 2009, and a follow-up: The Merry Goes 'Round, will be out in August.

Jewel can currently be seen on Bravo's Platinum Hit. She found out she was pregnant at the beginning of filming.

Jewel And Husband Ty Murray Are Expecting

Jan 11, 2011 07:58 AM


Singer Jewel and her rodeo star hubby Ty Murray are about to become a family of three!

Jewel, who is the co-host for Bravo's upcoming show Going Platinum, found out about her pregnancy on the first day of her new gig. The 36-year-old songbird tells People:

    "I took a pregnancy test and it was positive! It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I'd start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, 'Oh, she's pregnant.' "

The couple tied the knot in the Bahamas back in 2008. As for trying to conceive, Jewel tells the mag it was definitely a process. She adds:

    "I have always been a workaholic, so I had to learn how to slow down and take care of myself in a different way."

Jewel, now in her second trimester, released an album in 2009 called Lullaby ... a collection of children's song.

Their baby is going to love that CD!

Who Knew Jewel Had A Killer Bod?!

Jun 18, 2010 12:47 PM


Jewel graces the July cover of Shape magazine, and we haven't heard much from the singer over the past few months, but she's certainly back on our radar now! After being labeled "the chubby Renee Zellweger” when she first made a name for herself, Jewel reveals she was extremely self-conscious about her body.

“My feelings were so hurt by that story, I ended up bingeing on an entire cake," she tells the mag. "Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn’t do it. It made me think, ‘I can’t go down this road.’ I had seen so many performers develop eating disorders or try to control their weight with drugs, and I decided I would do no harm to my body.” Yikes!

Jewel has since developed a much healthier body image, adding, “We should be more like men, God bless ‘em. They can take their shirts off and show their man boobs, and they don’t give a hoot. But women are so critical of themselves. We can be gorgeous and hot and still be embarrassed to wear a tank top. So if you can’t stop looking in the mirror, at least try to not think badly about yourself when you do.”

Aww, good for her! And we're definitely digging her curves!
