PIC: Jewel Fixes Teeth, Goes Brunette for June Carter Cash Role
What a transformation!
Jewel has completely changed her look to resemble the late June Carter Cash for her role in Lifetime's upcoming biopic, The June Carter Cash Story.
Jewel tweeted the first photo of her makeover on Tuesday, writing, "Here I am as June in my trailer with her blue eyes and perfect teeth."
Director Allison Anders also wrote, "My lovely star Jewel with blue eyes, straight teeth and kick*** wardrobe as June Carter Cash. Ring of Fire."
The four-time Grammy nominee also went from blonde to brunette for the role and is nearly unrecognizable. "Many people know about the legendary love story of Johnny and June," Executive Vice President of Programming Rob Sharenow told Us Weekly. "But June Carter Cash has her own epic journey filled with triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses . . . we're thrilled Jewel will be playing the title role."
Jewel, 38, became a first-time mom last July to son Kase with her husband Ty Murray. And adding to her year of firsts, this is Jewel's first major acting role.
Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her role as June Carter Cash -- who passed away in 2003 at the age of 73 -- in 2005's Walk the Line.
